Invicta Fighting Championships
atomweight titlist Jessica
will defend her belt against Michelle
at Invicta FC 5, which is expected to take place April
13 in California.
Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp announced the news Thursday,
revealing that the all-female promotion will make its first
appearance on the West Coast after holding its first four shows at
Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan. Knapp unveiled the update during
a radio appearance on MMAJunkie.com, asserting that the event may
take place at the UCI Bren Center in Irvine, Calif.
Penne, 29, captured her title on Oct. 6 by submitting Jewels
Sugiyama with a second-round triangle choke at Invicta FC 3 on
Oct. 6. The win marked Penne’s second consecutive conquest since
returning to competition last year following 17 months on the
sideline. The once-beaten atomweight made her Invicta debut at the
promotion’s inaugural event in April, taking out Lisa Ellis
via third-round technical knockout.
Known as “The Karate Hottie,” Waterson has won four straight fights
heading into her sophomore promotional effort, most recently taking
home a split decision victory in her Invicta debut against Lacey
Schuckman on Oct. 6. Waterson owns six of her 10 career wins by
submission and has gone the distance just three times in nearly six
years as a pro.
