Who is ready for some Saturday night fights? All-female promotion Invicta Fighting Championships returns to the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City this weekend for Invicta FC 22.
In the main event of Invicta FC 22, women’s bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger will defend her title against challenger Yana Kunitskaya. The fight is a rematch of an original title fight between the two women which was won by Kunitskaya.
However, after an appeal and review by the athletic commission, the result was overturned and Evinger remained the champion. Now, she’ll be looking to win without controversy.
Invicta FC 22 also features Ayaka Hamasaki vs. Livia Renata Souza, DeAnna Bennett vs. Jodie Esquibel, Amber Brown vs. Ashley Cummins and more.
