Over the past month people have been complaining about waiting for the next Invicta card and have been wary if Invicta will ever come back. Let me assure you, Invicta will be bigger and better after the announcement is made.
I have been talking to InvictaFC president Shannon Knapp over the past month and she is excited about what is about to be announced for the company moving forward. Knapp wants to let fighters know that she is looking out for the best interest of them and a deal like this is all about the details. Any promotion worth their muster can sign a tv deal, but fools rush in when angels fear to tread.
The purpose of Invicta has always been to have a platform for WMMA and Knapp wants a solid one. Any short term deal isn’t going to cut it. That’s why the deal took so long. There may have been some hurdles in the short term, but Knapp is looking to the long term of the promotion.
Right now it’s about the network working out some details before an announcement can be made; which should happen sooner rather than later.
For those complaining, please be patient. Fighters if you have any questions or concerns, I highly recommend giving Shannon a call and she will be more than willing to address them.
Once the announcement is made, things will go quickly. One match that is a definite is Cyborg Justino versus Ediane Gomes. Knapp is also planning two cards out of the gate to make up for the lost time.
If there is one message Knapp wants to give the fighters and fans, it’s “Big things are coming and the announcement is well worth the wait.”
