Invicta FC 1: Coenen vs Ruyssen Quick Picks

| April 28, 2012 | Reply

With the talk of what could possibly happen to the women’s division in Strikeforce due to what looks like Strikeforce’s eventual closing, its left everyone wondering if it would mean the end of WMMA in North America with the exception of the occasional fight from Bellator. Enter Invicta FC, where former Strikeforce matchmaker Shannon Knapp decided that an all-female promotion could be exactly what is needed to keep WMMA alive and well.

One of the biggest issues affecting women’s mixed martial arts is catchweights. Catchweight fights make it seem that there isn’t as much depth as there is on the men’s side of the sport. It also affects records due to the weight difference after weighins. For example for a 140lb fight, you can have someone coming in on fight day at 142lb and her opponent at 160lbs.

The fans of MMA are hopeful that Invicta Fighting Championship will not only keep Women’s MMA around but better promote them and help it grow. The Invicta FC 1 fight card feature several well know female fighters and will stream live on the Invicta website starting at 5pm PT today.
