The ferocious, 29-year-old Penne weighed in at 104.5 pounds while Sugiyama, a 34-year-old champion of Japanese women’s MMA promotion JEWELS, weighed in at 103.5 pounds.

Women’s MMA pioneer Tara LaRosa (21-2) weighed in at 127.5 pounds, 1.5 pounds above the cutoff weight for her flyweight (125 pounds) match-up with Sao Paulo, Brazil’s Vanessa Porto (14-5), who weighed in at 125 pounds. Porto gained weight and re-weighed in at 127 pounds.

In the co-main event, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu brown belt Shayna “The Queen of Spades” Baszler (14-7) will return to action at bantamweight (135 pounds) and take on Invicta FC 2 winner Sarah “The Monster” D’Alelio (6-2).

Undefeated sensation Cat “Alpha” Zingano (6-0) will throw down with Invicta FC 2 winner Raquel “Rocky” Pennington (3-1) at bantamweight.

Prolific strikers Kaitlin Young (7-6-1) and Leslie “The Peacemaker” Smith (3-2-1) will face off in a highly anticipated bantamweight rematch to their April 28 slugfest at the inaugural Invicta FC event that ended in a majority draw.
