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.
