Invicta FC returns to action tonight with Invicta FC 6 from the Ameristar Hotel and Casino in Kansas City, Missouri. Tonight’s card underwent several last minute changes after yesterday’s weigh-ins, but the action will still kick off at 7PM ET on UStream before moving over to pay-per-view at 9PM ET. The evening’s main event will be an inaugural featherweight title scrap between Marloes Coenen and Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (formerly Santos).
While former atomweight champion Jessica Penne made weight and Tamikka Brents vs. Ediane Gomes was changed to a lightweight bout, Livia Von Plettenburg was unable to cut anymore weight and her opponent, Cassie Robb, refused a catchweight fight due to the weight differential. Von Plettenburg still wanted a fight and reportedly landed one with Kathina Catron according to multiple sources. That said, Invicta officials were still ironing out the details when asked about the fight and it remained unofficial as of this post.
Be sure to tune in for what should be a fantastic night of all-WMMA action on PPV and make sure to check out our interviews with Marloes Coenen and Invicta FC CEO Shannon Knapp. Tonight’s action will be called by promotion’s favored trio of Mauro Ranallo, Muhammed “King Mo” Lawal, and Julie Kedize.
