A million dollars to the first reader who can tell me which weight class constitutes the strawweight division. Too late, it’s the 115-pounders.
How do I know? Because Claudia Gadelha (Pictured) and Carla Esparza will battle to become Invicta’s inaugural strawweight champion in the promotion’s fourth show.
A bantamweight tilt between Shayna Baszler and Alexis Davis serves as the co-featured attraction.
Invicta FC 4 takes place January 5th inside Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas. No word on how the all-women’s mixed martial arts promotion plans on making the fights available for viewing.
Here is the event’s current roster:
Tecia Torres vs. Paige VanZant
Emily Kagan vs. Rose Namajunas
Jodie Esquibel vs. Liz McCarthy
Amanda Bell vs. Tamikka Brents
Stephanie Frausto vs. Cassie Rodish
Katalina Malungahu vs. Veronica Rothenhausler
Leslie Smith vs. TBD
Joanne Calderwood vs. Bec Hyatt
Ediane Gomes vs. Hiroko Yamanaka
Sarah D’Alelio vs. Amanda Nunes
Shayna Baszler vs. Alexis Davis
Carla Esparza vs. Claudia Gadelha (Inaugural strawweight title)
