Invicta FC will return in December, a week later than had been previously reported, and the flyweight title will be on the line in the main event.
Invicta FC 26 takes place Dec. 8 at Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo. The card had been expected to take place Nov. 30 at Park Theater in Las Vegas. Instead, the card heads to a familiar venue for the promotion.
An Invicta FC official told MMAjunkie that while promotion President Shannon Knapp had applied for an appropriate license to hold the event in Las Vegas, Invicta FC never had formally announced the event for Nov. 30.
In the headliner, flyweight champion Jennifer Maia (14-4-1) will put her belt up for grabs against unbeaten challenger Agnieszka Niedzwiedz (10-0), the promotion announced on Wednesday. The card will stream live on UFC Fight Pass.
Brazil’s Maia won the interim flyweight title in March 2016 with a unanimous decision win over Porto. She was promoted to full champ later that year and defended the title with a split decision over Roxanne Modafferi in September 2016.
Niedzwiedz, from Poland, has wins in both her fights under the Invicta FC banner. In June 2016, she outpointed Christine Stanley in her promotional debut. And in May, at Invicta FC 23, she took a decision from Porto. Of her 10 career wins, seven have been by stoppage.
