Visa issues have forced a late change to the Invicta FC 6 lineup as Tamikka Brents will step in for Charmaine Tweet against Ediane Gomes. The switch will be the second change of opponent for Gomes after original opponent Julia Budd was replaced by Tweet. The late change was first reported by MMARising.
Due to the nature of the late switch the bout will take place as a 150-pound catchweight fight. Brents will be facing her toughest test to date in her third professional fight against the hard-hitting Gomes. This will be Brents’s second fight with Invicta FC after defeating Amanda Bell with a solid ground-and-pound attack.
Invicta FC 6 will air as a pay-per-view in the US and Canada, with the card airing via Ustream outside of those countries. The billing will still be available as an online showing for those without cable in the US and Canada.
Invicta FC 6 will be headlined by the inaugural Invicta FC featherweight title fight between Coenen and “Cyborg.” A strawweight bout between undefeated fighters Claudia Gadelha and Ayaka Hamasaki will serve as the night’s co-headliner.
