Invicta FC 30 Primer: A Preview Vid Smorgasbord

There’s a good bit of MMA going down over the weekend, not the least of which is the latest installment of everyone’s favorite all-female promotion, Invicta FC.

Invicta FC 30 will bring us a main event between two of their top atomweights, and it’s a safe bet that, unlike all the other Invicta weight classes, the 105-pound class is safe from being pillaged by the UFC. Seriously, after the UFC’s female flyweight debacle, whoever wins between Jinh Yu Frey and Minna Grusander on Saturday night will likely get to be on Invicta posters for a while.

TUF vet and UFC refugee Heather Jo Clark will make her Invicta debut as well. It’s been nearly two years since her last fight, and she’s fighting a no-name, so she could win this one!

Anyway, here are some preview vids to get you motivated to watch.

Invicta FC 29 Results: Sarah Kaufman Wins a Belt, Julia Avila Gets a Nasty Injury

Invicta FC 29 was Friday night, and the all-female MMA promotion brought us the usual gleeful violence and technique – as well as a pretty nasty injury.

In the main event, UFC vet Sarah Kaufman just about ate opponent Katharina Lehner for dinner.

Kaufman tore her up on the feet, worked her over on the ground, and finally, in Round 3, tapped her out with a choke. Kaufman earned an Invicta bantamweight belt for her efforts.

Meanwhile, UFC vet Pearl Gonazalez got a submission win over Barbara Acioly earlier in the night, while relative unknowns Julia Avila and Marciea Allen fought for just under a minute for Avila suffered a compound fracture in her finger while parrying a kick. Yikes.
