Today it was announced that Invicta FC’s 5th event will be headlined by Jessica Penne (10-1) and Michelle Waterson (10-3) . Penne, the inaugural atomweight champion, won the belt with a submission victory over previously undefeated Jewels champion, Naho Sugiyama. Penne has only tasted defeat once, a decision loss to Zoila Frausto. Other than that, Penne has looked very impressive, only going to decision in two of her victories. She also defeated Rena in a Shoot Boxing match. Her opponent, is Jackson’s MMA fighter Michelle Waterson. Michelle, also known as the Karate Hottie, has shown that she is also a finisher, having the same number of finishes and victories as Penne. Michelle made her Invicta debut with a Fight of the Night split-decision victory over Lacey Schuckman. Both of these fighters are finishers and this should be an exciting fight.
Also on the card is another inaugural championship fight between Bard Honchak (7-2-0) and Vanessa Porto (15-5-0). This event also looks to take place away from Kansas City for the first time in the promotions history. It looks like the event will probably take place in Irvine, California.
INVICTA FC 5 takes place on April 13th
