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 atomweights takes center stage in the fourth fight, as the #7 ranked Amy Davis takes on Stephanie Frausto.
Davis’s losses are to some of the top females in the division, and her kimura win over Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc has turned some heads. She is looking to get her record above .500 and make her way into title contention.
Frausto is also gaining some momentum at atomweight, with a win over Diana Rael.
She has found a home in the faster 105 division, after getting heavy competition in the Bellator 115 division.
In what will be one of many international contests on the card, St. Louis’s Ashley Cummins will tkae on Scotland’s Joanne Calderwood.
Cummins has never lost a fight in either the pro or ammy ranks; having won her last fight via submission over Sofia Bangerdai at InvictaFC 1.
Calderwood comes from a striking background and is undefeated as a pro MMA fighter. This will be her debut in the U.S., having fought in her native Scotland and at the Super Fight League in India.
Two Bellator vets will duke it out in the sixth match as #4 ranked strawweight Carla Esparza takes on Lynn Alvarez.
Alvarez is coming off a two year absence from the sport, and has a great submission game. She only has two losses in her career; to Angela Magana, and to Jessica Aguilar in Bellator.
Esparza, on the other hand, has been busy. Her wrestling gave her a win over Sarah Schneider at InvictaFC 2.
She has won four of her last five, with a close split decision loss to Aguilar.
