During this week of InvictaFC 3, we will preview the 14 fights of the card. You can watch InvictaFC 3 this Saturday at 4 p.m. pacific/7 p.m. eastern live and free on InvictaFC.com.
The card opens with a featherweight bout between undefeated Katalina Malungahu and veteran fighter Ediane Gomes.
A product of Xtreme Couture in Las Vegas, Malungahu is making a name for herself as a knockout artist, having finished all of her opponents in the first or second round via that fashion.
Gomes has seen improvement since her move to Florida, and is mainly a ground specialist. She has seven submissions to her credit, and has only lost to Strikeforce champ Ronda Rousey and Amanda Nunes.
The second match could steal the show as two of the best amateur strawweights battle.
American Top Team’s Tecia Torres has been the unmovable force, not losing a single match. Although she isn’t know to be a finisher, her matches have been exciting on the ground and feet. Her speed and quickness makes her a fighter to watch.
Kaiyana Rain will be Torres’s biggest test to date. Rain trains out of King’s MMA with fellow Invicta fighter Jessica Penne. On a four fight win streak going into the pros, her strength will be a test for Torres.
In a bantamweight battle, rising star Jessamyn Duke will take on Marciea Allen.
Allen is well conditioned and has been well coached by fellow InvictaFC fighter Shayna Baszler. Having found success at Tuff-n-uff, she won her first pro fight last month with a first round triangle choke.
Duke is on a roll and is set to be the next superstar in the bantamweight division. She made her pro debut at InvictaFC 2, getting a 3rd round TKO victory over Susie Montero. She is looking to make a statement in the 135 division.
