invicta fc 11

Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp laid out plans for the two next Invicta FC events recently, including Cris “Cyborg” Justino’s return to the cage.

Knapp stated after Invicta FC 11 that the promotion will return to UFC Fight Pass April 10 and July 10, with Cyborg set for the July show that coincides with International Fight Week in Las Vegas for the UFC.

The promotion stated that Justino will be defending her featherweight championship, further delaying any plans for a move to the UFC and a super-fight vs. Ronda Rousey. UFC president Dana White and CEO Lorenzo Fertitta watched her dominate performance vs. Charmaine Tweet, with both stating previously that they would like to see her successfully cut to bantamweight before signing her to a contract.

New atomweight champion Herica Tiburcio will make her first title defense vs. Ayaka Hamasaki in July, while the April 10 event will feature Katj Kankaanpaa facing Livia Renata Souza for the strawweight championship.
