Tonya Evinger Now Headlining Invicta FC 14

The full Invicta FC 14 card has been announced, and there’s been a shakeup of the main event. The Strawweight title defense between Livia Souza and Alex Grasso has been postponed due to an unknown injury of Grasso’s. Into the slot slides a fight guaranteed to be just as much fun: Tonya Evinger’s Bantamweight title defense against Pannie Kianzad.

Evinger brutalized Irene Aldana at IFC 13 to grab the strap, and Kianzad was also last seen at IFC 13, where she won a decision against Jessica-Rose Clark. Evinger is on a seven-fight winning streak, finishing her last seven opponents, finishing three via submission and two via knockout, and Kianzad is a hot prospect Invicta snagged from Cage Warriors.

The co-main event is a title eliminator between strawweights DeAnna Bennett and Katja Kankaanpää, whom Livia Souza took the strawweight belt from at Invicta FC 12.

The whole card is pretty stacked, but some of the most interesting fights on the card are:

  • The flyweight matchup with fan favorite Andrea KGB Lee and Rachael Ostovich. This one has a real chance of being one of the most entertaining fights of the night.
  • Aussie featherweight Megan Anderson’s US and Invicta debut against veteran Cindy Dandois.
  • The always-fun Roxanne Modafferi’s flyweight matchup with Mariana Morais.
  • Hot strawweight prospect Jamie Moyle’s fight with champion wrestler Sharon Jacobson.

The full ten-fight card is:

Bantamweight Title: Tonya Evinger (16-5) vs. Pannie Kianzad (8-0)
Strawweight: Katja Kankaanpaa (10-2-1) vs. DeAnna Bennett (7-0)
Flyweight: Roxanne Modafferi (17-12) vs. Mariana Morais (9-2)
Flyweight: Rachael Ostovich (2-1) vs. Andrea Lee (2-1)
Featherweight: Cindy Dandois (5-2) vs. Megan Anderson (4-1)
Strawweight: Jamie Moyle (3-0) vs. Sharon Jacobson (3-1)
Atomweight: Jinh Yu Frey (3-1) vs. Liz McCarthy (2-1)
Strawweight: J.J. Aldrich (1-1) vs. Daniela Kortmann (1-0)
Flyweight: Aspen Ladd (1-0) vs. Amanda Bobby Cooper (1-0)
Lightweight: Rachel Wiley (0-0) vs. Felicia Spencer (0-0)

Invicta FC 14 will be held September 12 at Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, and will stream live on Fight Pass.
