Pound for pound the best fight promotion on the planet, Invicta FC returns for its seventh show stacked to the rafters with talent. There are three straps on the line this time around, as Barb Honchak looks to defend the 125lb belt against ultra-talented Leslie Smith, while Carla Esparza battles Claudia Gadelha at 115lbs, and Lauren Murphy and Miriam Nakamoto fight for the inaugural Bantamweight belt.

Last night’s Invicta FC 6 marked the promotions first real PPV appearance and it will be very interesting to see the number later the week. The night was headlined by a featherweight champion bout between former Strikeforce champions Cristiane Cyborg and Marloes Coenen but unfortunately also saw a somewhat controversial decision against Ashley Cummings.
A glorious Saturday awaits us, as Invicta finds its way to PPV, allowing us to set aside our laptops and see WMMA in our living room. They’re sparing no expense with the line-up this time either, as we have a slew of titles, title eliminators, high-profile debuts, and straight up blood bathes on deck, making it a can’t miss event. If you’ve missed the last Invicta cards, kindly slap yourself in the face and read on to see why you need to clear your schedule this Saturday.
We were treated to another glorious night of WMMA action, as old-school BJJ battlers, new-school MMA mavens, and everything in between hit the cage at Invicta FC 5. With an attention to detail and the commitment of its hungry fighters, Invicta is putting out a quality product and if you’re not on the bandwagon yet, I suggest you make a run for it.
There are many events this week with a lot of men putting their rankings, titles and health on the line, yet let’s not forget about the ladies. This weekend, Invicta FC 5 will be going down in Kansas City, with a full card to be shown via IPPV that’s well worth the price of admission.
The all female MMA promotion Invicta held their first event of the New Year from Kansas City, KS last night with Invicta 4. The 13 bout fight card aired live on Internet Pay Per View, but issues with the stream forced the promotion to make Invicta 4 free. Hopefully the stream worked for you because once again the ladies of Invicta shined.
Recently a new fight promotion came into the still expanding MMA scene with an all women’s format and Professional fights that deliver great entertainment. Still on the forefront of what could be the biggest shift in women’s professional mixed martial arts ever, Invicta FC takes the simple approach to providing the best possible match making available while building solid divisional formats and stars.
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.
