For the 3 days we will previewing InvictaFC 8 which will emanate from Kansas City Municipal Auditorium September 6, and will stream on UFC Fight Pass.
Check out Wombat Sports as we will give you continuing coverage live on location.
The bantamweight division is ready to rebuild with TUF 18 vet Peggy Morgan and Mexico’s Irene Aldana.
Peggy Morgan (2-1) – Morgan is coming off her appearance on TUF 18, and the 6’1 fighter is looking to gain more experience to return to the UFC. She went undefeated as an amateur and went 2-0 before losing to Jessamyn Duke in the UFC.
Irene Aldana (3-1) – Aldana is also coming off her first loss to UFC signee Larissa Moreira Pacheco. A teammate of fellow InvictaFC fighter Alexa Grasso, she started her career with three knockouts under a minute.
Both are seeking redemption and a chance to climb to the top of Invicta’s growing 135 division. Morgan is looking to become a star in Invicta and a solid win would solidify her position. An impressive Aldana win could turn some heads and with the UFC expansion to Mexico, we could see her make the jump before reaching the top of the Invicta division.
What to expect:
Morgan’s reach and experience against higher level opponents will make her the favorite going in. Aldana looks to keep it standing and if possible get the quick knockout.
Look for Morgan to be favored due to experience.
