Invicta will start 2015 in sunny California.

MMAFighting.com broke the news Monday night  the promotion will hold it’s 11th card on February 27th in Los Angeles at the Shrine Auditorium, a night before Ronda Rousey versus Cat Zingano at the Staples Center in L.A.

The main event will see Cyborg Justino defend her featherweight title against Charmaine Tweet.

Justino will return after a year and a half absence as she was trying to drop to bantamweight and fighting Muay Thai. Her last Invicta match saw her defeat Marloes Coenen for the second time.

Tweet has won back to back fights, including her Invicta debut over Veronica Rothenhausler by first round TKO.

The rest of the card is expected to be announced Tuesday.
