After nine months off, Invicta Fighting Championships will return in September with its debut on the UFC’s Fight Pass digital network.

Invicta FC and the UFC announced the news on Thursday for Invicta FC 8, which takes place Sept. 6 in the promotion’s regular home of Kansas City, Mo. With a pair of title fights at the top of the bill, the event will be Invicta’s first to stream on Fight Pass, a deal that was announced in June.

No venue has been announced for the card yet. Invicta President Shannon Knapp said on a Thursday conference call with media members that the promotion “outgrew” its venue for the previous four cards, the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City.

On the heels of a content deal between the all-female MMA promotion and the UFC, Invicta FC’s full library will also be available on UFC Fight Pass.

Headlining the card is an atomweight title between champion Michelle Waterson (11-3) and Yasuko Tamada (15-8-3). The co-main event sees the vacant strawweight title up for grabs as Stephanie Eggink (4-1) takes on Katja Kankaanpaa (9-1-1).

The promotion also announced fights between Ediane Gomes (10-2) and Tonya Evinger (13-5), Tara LaRosa (21-4) vs. Roxanne Modafferi (15-11) in a trilogy fight, Irene Aldana (3-1) vs. Peggy Morgan (2-1) and Veronica Rothenhausler (1-0) vs. Charmaine Tweet (5-4) at lightweight.
