InvictaFC 10 Heads to Houston; Waterson vs. Tiburcio to Headline


InvictaFC President Shannon Knapp announced the last InvictaFC of the year will be heading to Houston December 5th.

With the news of Cyborg Justino out due to a knee injury, Michelle Waterson will step up once again to defend her atomweight title against Brazilian Herica Tiburcio. Tiburcio (8-2) has won three straight and took current UFC strawweight Claudia Gadelha the distance. Tiburcio was set to fight at Invicta 9, but a visa issue had negated her debut.

Waterson dominated Yasuko Tamada in her first title denfence at InvictaFC 8.

Knapp also announced two more fights, including a bantamweight co-main event between Tonya Evinger and Cindy Dadnois. Evinger is currently in Houston training; and Dandois looks to refutrn to action after a few years absence.

In what will most likely be a #1 contenders match, Roxanne Modafferi and Vanessa Porto will battle in a flyweight contest.

The full card will be announced this week. The event will stream on UFC Fight Pass December 5.
