Invicta FC’s second event following COVID-19 changing their 2020 schedule is set for July 30th, with strawweights Janaisa Morandin and Montserrat Ruiz in the main event. The show is set to take place in Kansas City, Kansas, USA.
Janaisa Morandin vs. Montserrat Ruiz
Morandin will look to come back from a two-fight losing streak following stoppage losses to Virna Jandiroba and Emily Ducote. Her last fight dates back to late 2017 where she took a decision victory over Kinberly Novaes.
The show is set to be Ruiz’s return after a failed debut against Invicta FC in late 2018. The fight ended Ruiz’s 7-0 undefeated run in professional MMA before.
Erin Blanchfield vs. Stephanie Geltmacher
Also on the card is a flyweight battle between Erin Blanchfield and Stephanie Geltmacher. The fight will see Blanchfield look to build off her head kick win from February over Victoria Leonardo. Geltmacher will aim to bounce back from her first loss as a pro, which came in August of 2019 to Leonardo as well.
Kaitlin Young vs. Latoya Walker
Invicta FC veteran Kaitlin Young will return on the show as well, being matched against Latoya Walker. Young last fought in August, not being favoured in a Invicta FC Featherweight Championship fight on the scorecards against Pam Sorenson.
Her opponent, Walker, will come back after an extended layoff. Her last fight came in May of 2016, where she took her first professional loss, getting caught with a spinning backfist by Charmaine Tweet.
Cynthia Arceo vs. Itzel Esquivel
In a strawweight bout, Cynthia Arceo will face Itzel Esquivel on the card. Arceo will look to get her first Invicta FC win, as she lost via decision to Mallory Martin in her promotional debut last November.
Esquivel looks for her first promotional win as well, as her only fight so far was a one-round decision loss to Alyssa Krahn in the first “Phoenix Series” tournament. Before then, Esquivel fought six times in regional promotion LFA.
Undefeated Fighters And A Double Debut
The card will also see flyweights young into their careers compete in Invicta FC. Undefeated after two fights, Caitlin Sammons will fight Claire Guthrie who won her debut last October.
The show will also see the professional MMA debut of Natalya Speece and Alexa Culp.
