Invicta officials on Monday announced tickets’ availability for Invicta FC 5, which takes place April 5 at Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Mo.

Tickets start at $25 and are available at TicketFly.com.

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).

The card also recently added arguably the biggest name in Invicta history with the signing of former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos (10-1), who meets Ediane Gomes (10-2).

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

The main card also gets bouts between Zoila Frausto Gurgel (12-2) and Jennifer Maia (6-2); former Strikeforce champ Sarah Kaufman (15-2) makes her Invicta debut against Leslie Smith (5-2-1); Amanda Nunes (7-3) takes on Kaitlin Young (7-7-1); Julia Budd (4-2) takes on Fiona Muxlow (6-2); Bec Hyatt (4-2) drops from flyweight to strawweight (115) to meet Jasminka Cive (5-0); and Katja Kankaanpaa (7-0-1) vs. Juliana Carnerio Lima (5-0) at strawweight.

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.

The Invicta FC 5 preliminary card consists of a bantamweight bout between Jessamyn Duke (2-0) and Miriam Nakamoto (1-0); Alex Chambers (4-1) vs. Jodie Esquibel at atomweight; Rose Namajunas (1-0) vs. Kathina Catron (2-1) at strawweight; Veronica Rothenhausler (1-0) vs. Mollie Estes (1-1); and River Jones (0-0) vs. Lauren Barefoot (1-0) at bantamweight.
