“Invicta FC 5: Penne vs. Waterson” takes place April 5th inside Ameristar Casino Hotel Kansas City, Missouri. The card features a pair of championship affairs.
Jessica Penne (Pictured) breaks in her atomweight belt against Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson in the show’s featured attraction. Vanessa Porto and Barb Honchak battle for the inaugural flyweight crown in the co-main event.
“We are excited about entering a new chapter in Invicta FC history that consists of a partnership with one of the finest and most impressive entertainment venues in the country as well as our first world championship doubleheader card that is loaded with world-class women’s fight talent,” said Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp.
No word on how Invicta plans on making the card available for viewing. They attempted their first online pay-per-view with January’s event, but the all-female MMA promotion experienced several problems with the live Ustream feed.
