Invicta FC LogoInvicta Fighting Championships will stream its much-anticipated Baszler vs. McMann, 14-fight women’s professional Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) event, live in its entirety and free of charge to a worldwide audience on the promotion’s website, InvictaFC.com, from Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan., on Saturday, July 28.

Returning to the Invicta FC broadcast booth to call the action will be the trio that called the fights during Invicta FC’s inaugural event on April 28 – Showtime MMA voice Mauro Ranallo, light heavyweight superstar “King Mo” Lawal and women’s MMA sensation Julie “Fireball” Kedzie.

Additionally, Raquel Pa’aluhi (2-2) replaces Leslie Smith, who has withdrawn from the event due to a fractured wrist, against hard-hitting knockout artist Amanda Nunes (6-2) in a bantamweight (135 pounds) main card bout.

“We are excited about delivering a stacked women’s fight card to a global audience for the second time in a three month span,” said Invicta FC President and Co-Founder Shannon Knapp.  “The live stream is an excellent way of supporting Invicta FC’s mission of providing women mixed martial artists with a major platform to showcase their skills on and to support the growth of women’s MMA far and wide.”

The live stream on InvictaFC.com will begin at 7 p.m. EST/4 p.m. PST with the event’s six-bout preliminary card and continue with the eight-bout main card.

In the bantamweight main event, 2004 Olympic Wrestling Silver Medalist and undefeated MMA star Sara McMann (5-0) squares off with battle-tested submission wizard Shayna Baszler (14-6).
