Invicta FC LogoIt was a reality show in 2005 that catapulted the Ultimate Fighting Championship and mixed martial arts into the mainstream with the debut of The Ultimate Fighter on Spike TV.  Bellator MMA launched its reality series, Fight Master: Bellator MMA, in June.  Invicta FC will join the promotions with reality shows in the near future.

Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp made the announcement following Invicta FC 6 on July 13.

“We’re doing a reality series that will be completely different than the format of what the UFC is doing and what Bellator is doing,” said Knapp.  “It will give an opportunity for these athletes to be more known and elevated in the eyes of the public and all that kind of thing.”

Invicta FC, an all-female fight promotion, held its first event in April 2012 and has seen steady growth in its first year of existence.

“I think it’s important for the athletes to know that we’re striving and moving forward every day, and I think that gives them even more to fight for and be excited about,” she said.  “I mean, come on.  Look at these girls.  Can you imagine watching a show with all these personalities that we have here in Invicta?  This show is going to be amazing.”

The organization is currently working on a pilot for the reality series.  It’s unknown when the series will debut or on what network.

“We’re working on a lot of stuff,” said Knapp.  “We have a lot of options.”
