Invicta FC 5 features an atomweight title fight between champion Jessica Penne (10-1) and Michelle Waterson (10-3), plus a flyweight title fight between Vanessa Porto (15-5) and Barb Honchak (7-2).

Invicta FC 5 has a nine-fight main card following a six-fight set of prelims.

Officials also announced a new 105-pound bout between Cassie Rodish (4-3) and Simona Soukupova (3-2). Rodish was scheduled to meet Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc (8-6), but Rivera-Calanoc had to withdraw from the fight with an injury.
