The official weigh-in event for tomorrow night’s (April 5, 2013) all-female Invicta FC 5 fight card takes place today (April 4) at 6:30 p.m. ET from the Aladdin Holiday Inn in Kansas City, Missouri.
Headlining the main event will be the first ever Invicta FC title defense as atomweight champion Jessica Penne as she takes on “The Karate Hottie” Michelle Waterson.
The co-main event is a flyweight title fight between Vanessa Porto and Barb Honchak. Porto is a long-time veteran hailing from Brazil who’s coming off the biggest win of her career, a dominant unanimous decision victory over female fighting legend Tara LaRosa. Honchak, on the other hand, has quietly gone 2-0 in her Invicta stint with strong showings against Bethany Marshall and Aisling Daley.
Last but not least, a trio of incredibly talented former female champions will make their Invicta debuts as former Strikeforce featherweight champ Cristiane Santos battles late replacement Fiona Muxlow, former Strikeforce bantamweight champion Sarah Kaufman takes on Leslie Smith and former Bellator strawweight champ Zoila Gurgel battles Jennifer Maia.
