The ladies of Invicta FC return to UFC Fight Pass this Friday night with Invicta FC 12: Kankaanpaa vs. Souza.
Set for the Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, the card features Invicta FC strawweight champion Katja Kankaanpaa defending her title against Livia Renata Souza in the main event.
Kanaanpaa, a 33-year-old from Finland, won the title and improved to 10-1 with a fifth round submission victory over Stephanie Eggink last September. Her lone career loss came to Joanne Calderwood via decision, while she also scored a win over UFC fighter Aisling Daly in 2012.
Souza is unbeaten in her MMA career, going 7-0 with six submission wins to her credit.
Also, Vanessa Porto faces Roxanne Modafferi, Faith Van Duin battles Amanda Bell, Ediane Gomes meets Raquel Pa’aluhi and Peggy Morgan squares off with Latoya Walker.
Porto (17-6) and Modafferi (17-11) are two of the more experienced flyweights in the world, as Porto has faced the likes of current Invicta FC champions Cris Cyborg and Barb Honchak, Zoila Frausto Gurgel and Amanda Nunes, while Modafferi holds a 2008 TKO win over her.
