It wasn’t an injury or illness or contract dispute that scratched Laura Sanko from Invicta FC 6. Instead, a pregnancy has forced the mother-to-be from the July card.
Sanko and Invicta officials recently announced the news.
In her place steps Cassie Robb (0-1), who suffered a submission loss to Sanko (1-0) at Invicta FC 4. She takes on fellow atomweight (115-pounder) Livia Von Plettenberg (1-1) in Invicta FC 6's opening bout.
Invicta FC 6 takes place July 13 at Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Mo. The event streams as an online pay-per-view.
Robb, who made her pro debut following a successful amateur run, kept things competitive with Sanko before succumbing to a second-round rear-naked choke in their January bout. She looks to rebound against Von Plettenberg, an Austrian who drops a weight class following a short-notice decision loss to Joanne Calderwood at Invicta FC 4.
