Seven fights with three titles on the line will highlight InvictaFC 13 at the Cosmopolitan Hotel in Las Vegas July 9th.

As speculated, champion Cyborg Justino will face New Zealand’s Faith Van Duin for the featherweight title. This will be the possibly last time we will see Justino at this weight before she makes her drop to bantamweight. Van Duin is coming off an upset win over Amanda Bell.

Tonya Evinger (15-5) finally got her title match, facing Mexican standout Irene Aldana (5-1) for the vacant bantamweight title. Evinger is on a six fight win streak, while Aldana has won back to back fights at Invicta.

The third title fight is the already announced atomweight bout between champion Herica Tibercio and #1 contender Ayaka Hamsaki.

As for the undercard:

  • Undefeated bantamweight Pannie Kianzad (7-0) will make her InvictaFC debut against Australia’s Jessy Rose Clark (5-1). Kianzad is the Cage Warriors bantamweight champion, while Clark has won her last three fights.
  • Marina Shafir will make her InvictaFC debut against pro debuter Amber Leibrock. Shafir, a member of the Four Horsewomen, is coming off a KO loss to Amanda Bell. Leibrock got her Invicta contract by winning the Tuff-n-uff featherweight tournament.
  • Both coming off wins in Invicta, Amy Montenegro (6-1) and Jamie Moyle (2-0) will face off in a strawweight battle.
  •  Round out the card is the already announced is Irish standout Catherine Costigan versus Amber Borwn in what could be an atomweight title eliminator.

The card will stream on UFC Fight Pass July 9th.

  1. Going back on previous events with high profile participants… and release of payouts for Cyborg maybe reason for 7 fights that yet are high quality. The stage is set for WMMA fan nit only for invicta fc, immaf amatuers, and those gone to UFC to provide a story line as to how far the WMMA scene has come in its last 20 years and where it can in the future. My advice to the women and mainstream wmma niche rags is start telling your story to mainstream outlets from espn, SI, and regional papers were your from as 45 states now allow mma which has potential to have 45 wmma opportunities on those cards for local talent.
