Tonight’s Invicta FC 2 was only the second show the all female promotion has put on but you won’t know this if not for the “2” in the title. Invicta and the ladies that stepped into the cage at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas put on a great show tonight with some of the better fights of the year.
The card was headlined by the undefeated wrestler Sara McMann taking on Shayna Baszler in a bout that would end the night with a bang. Though the judges would score the fight a unanimous decision, it was much closer than that and both fighters delivered a main event performance.
Invicta FC 2 was streamed on the Invicta website and if there was a complaint about tonight’s action it would be that it wasn’t on TV. Its nitpicking but the show deserved to be televised on MMA fans TV’s in high-definition.
