Invicta FC 5 Revisited

Last week we ventured back to Kansas City for another amazing Invicta FC event. It was great seeing old friends, making new ones and finally meeting others in person for the first time. After catching the weigh-in, fight day could not come soon enough with 26 female warriors ready to make a statement. Invicta FC 5 brought us two title fights, a former Strikeforce champion, a former Bellator champion and plenty of explosive action throughout the night. From a record timing flying armbar submission from Rose Namajunas, back and forth battles including Sarah Kaufmann and Leslie Smith, the smashing return of Cris Cyborg and new Invicta FC champions Barb Honchak and Michelle Waterson. Thanks again to our sponsored fighter Jessamyn Duke regardless of the outcome which is under review and can’t wait to see you back in action. I don’t know how they keep putting on these amazing fight cards but if you haven’t seen one yet don’t miss the next one from Invicta FC!
