A busy fight weekend starts with InvictaFC Friday night on UFC Fight Pass.
The main event will fill the vacant flyweight title as Pearl Gonzalez (9-3) faces perennial contender Vanessa Porto (20-8).
The co-main and featured bouts are tournament semi-finals to find a contender for the main event winner. Milana Dudieva (12-7) and Karina Rodriguez (6-3) will take the co-main spot with DeAnna Bennett (9-4-1) vs. Miranda Maverick (4-1) as the featured fight.
Seven fights total as Helena Kolesnyk weighed in 11.3 pounds over, scrapping her bout with Faith McMah, who came in on weight. The other overweight saw Holli Logan come in 4.9 pounds over, but her fight with Courtney King will be at a 150 catchweight, and King will get 25% of Logan’s purse.
The first four fights will be on streaming on Facebook as well as Fight Pass.
