Invicta FC is returning to MMA Junkie for its second event of 2022.
Invicta FC 46, which takes place March 9 will be simulcast on both MMA Junkie’s and Invicta FC’s YouTube channels, in addition to live-streaming on MMA Junkie starting at 8 p.m. ET. The event takes place at Police Athletic League in Kansas City, Kan.
“After a great event in January, we are thrilled to be working with MMA Junkie again for this upcoming card,” Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp said Wednesday in a statement. “They are supportive of our athletes and we are thankful to have them on board for another event.”
The promotion’s first event of the year, Invicta FC 45, live-streamed on MMA Junkie on Jan. 12. The event featured an atomweight title bout which saw Jessica Delboni defeat Alesha Zappitella in a dominant unanimous decision victory to become champion.
Rodriguez (9-4) claimed the vacant flyweight title by defeating Daiana Torquato via unanimous decision at Invicta on AXS TV in May 2021 to make history as the first Mexico-born champion in the promotion’s history.
Souza (11-3) will make her Invicta debut in a title bout riding hot on a three-fight win streak. In 2021, the Brazilian won three fights in less than three months’ time and will look to make a big splash with an immediate title shot.
The full lineup of Invicta FC 46 includes:
Karina Rodríguez vs. Ketlen Souza – for flyweight title
Daiana Torquato vs. Milana Dudieva
Danielle Taylor vs. Liz Tracy
Kristina Williams vs. Flore Hani
Paulina Granados vs. Monique Adriane
