Porto vs. Modafferi Rematch Booked for InvictaFC 12


Another title eliminator bout will be featured on the InvictaFC 12 card in Kansas City April 24.

In a rematch of their 2008 fight, Roxanne Modafferi will take on Vanessa Porto. Combat Sports broke the news Friday night, and we have confirmed through sources as well.

Modafferi (17-11) has won back to back flyweight fights at Invicta and has looked stronger and better since her move to Syndicate MMA in Vegas. Porto (17-6) has also won back to back fights. Both have notable wins over Tara LaRosa.

Modafferi defeated Porto in their first outing by a third round TKO to win the Fatal Femmes bantamweight title. The winner of this match will most likely get a rematch with flyweight champion Barb Honchak.

The match joins Faith Van Duin versus Amanda Bell, and the strawweight title match between champion Katja Kankaanpää and undefeated Brazilian Livia Renata Souza.

The card will stream on UFC Fight Pass April 24.
