On Thursday, Dec. 4, Invicta Fighting Championships hosted the weigh-ins for Invicta FC 10: Waterson vs. Tiburcio which takes place Friday, Dec. 5, from the Arena Theatre in Houston.
In the night’s main event, Invicta FC atomweight champion Michelle Waterson (12-3) will face Brazilian challenger Herica Tiburcio (8-2).
Waterson is coming off the first defense of her title, a TKO victory over Yasuko Tamada (15-9) in September. The win marked the champion’s 10th finish in 12 career victories.
Tiburcio, currently riding a three-fight winning streak, was slated to make her promotional debut at Invicta FC 9, but visa issues forced her off the card. Six of the 22-year-old challenger’s career wins have come via submission.
Red-hot bantamweight contender Tonya Evinger (14-5), coming off a first-round submission of Ediane Gomes, meets Belgium’s Cindy Dandois (5-1) in the co-main event.
