Sally Krumdiack Looking to Help Put Invicta FC on the Map


Invicta FC LogoWith 13 professional fights and two championships earned over the course of six years in MMA, Sally Krumdiack is one of the most experienced fighters competing on the inaugural Invicta FC show on April 28 in Kansas City, Kan.

As a veteran fighter on the card, for someone who has seen as much as Krumdiack has during her career to get so pumped to be part of an organization is really saying something.

“Once they started sending paperwork, saying what it would be, what their motto was and what they wanted their show to be, I was really excited about it,” she said.

“We haven’t really seen an American all-women’s MMA organization since Fatal Femmes, so I’m pretty excited to see how far this organization goes. They’re really on the ball and very organized and it’s really nice.”

Having fought just once last year, and having had her only other fight this year cancelled, Krumdiack is anticipating things picking up now that she’s part of Invicta. And in preparation for such, she told MMAWeekly.com that she placed added emphasis on her grappling during her downtime between fights.

“I got a wrestling coach that’s been with me all this year and it’s been a great addition,” she said. “That’s one thing I hadn’t trained in, and I was looking to add some technique to my game, so I added wrestling in there.

“I’m trying to improve my game and try new things and not be a stale fighter that does the same things every time out.”

At Invicta, Krumdiack will be facing Sarah Schneider in what could be one of the evening’s most balanced fights, as both fighters are coming down in weight to 115 pounds and have nearly the same level of opposition faced in the sport.

“Her record is 50/50, but she’s fought some of the best, so I know I have a fight coming into this,” said Krumdiack. “I think it’s a good match-up because we’re both good all-around. She’ll do some takedowns and likes to play on the cage, and so do I, so I haven’t been working on one specific thing. I just want to win, and however fast I can do it, that’s what I want.

“I’m not going to showboat or anything. Obviously I want people to enjoy themselves and have a good time, but I want to get a win and not play around. Whatever it takes; stand-up, ground and pound, or submission, I want it as soon as possible. “

Having bounced around to numerous promotions in her career, the opportunity to build something long-term with Invicta is more than a welcomed prospect to Krumdiack.

“That would be excellent; I would very much enjoy that,” she said. “Everything has gone well so far with organized they are and how they know what’s going on.

“Everything’s been so smooth, so I hope what they get out of it is lots of viewers, good ticket sales, and we put on a good enough show that they can continue and ultimately I can fight more and bring up my career even more.”
