Invicta FC 6 features Cris Cyborg vs. Marloes Coenen rematching in a headlining featherweight title bout, while the co-main event features undefeated strawweights Ayaka Hamasaki and Claudio Gadelha.

“We’re excited to be distributing Invicta FC 6 to MMA fans in the U.S.,” Doug Jacobs of Integrated Sports Media, the company distributing the North American pay-per-view. “Women’s MMA has exploded and Invicta Fighting Championships has led the charge.”
