Invicta FC 2 Card Released: Sara McMann vs. Shayna Baszler Set as Main Event



Invicta Fighting Championships has announced their second show featuring an all female fight card and they have an Olympian heading up the action.

On Tuesday, Invicta FC announced that Olympic wrestler Sara McMann will face off with former Strikeforce and Elite XC fighter Shayna Baszler on July 28 in Kansas City, Kan.

McMann comes into the fight with an unblemished record and as the first ever American woman to medal in wrestling in the Olympics. A highly sought after prospect, McMann will look to keep her winning streak alive when Invicta FC returns on July 28.

In addition to the main and co-main event, Invicta FC also announced that former Strikeforce title contender Liz Carmouche will face former Elite XC competitor Kaitlin Young and several other bouts also scheduled for the July 28 card.
