The atomweights are featured in the second match on the card as Jodie Esquibel takes on promotional newcomer Jihn Yu Frey.

The Fighters:

Jodie Esquibel (3-1): The Jackson/Winkeljohn MMA fighter is very familiar with InvictaFC, having fought twice. Coming off a loss to TUF 20 fighter Alex Chambers, Esquibel is looking to get back on the winning track.

Jihn Yu Frey (2-0): Coming off a head kick KO last year, Frey has finished both of her pro wins within the first stanza. The Texas fighter is training partners with Amber Stautzenberger.

The Storyline:

Jodie Esquibel is looking to once again climb the ladder at 105, even if her training partner Michelle Waterson is in the top spot. Frey has seemed to come into her own after a rough amateur career. A win over Esquibel could see Frey move into the top 10.

What to expect:

Both have striking experience (Esquibel is a former boxing and kickboxing champion) and we could expect a war on the feet. Frey’s power could see an exciting finish.

Expect Esquibel’s experience to have the edge in the odds going in.
