Invicta FC 53 to feature first all-women commentary booth

Invicta Fighting Championships is once again breaking barriers in the world of women’s sports.

On Wednesday, May 3, the world’s premier combat sports organization for women will write a new chapter in sports history. At Invicta FC 53, the promotion will become the first major MMA organization to feature an all-women commentary team when play-by-play announcer Aly Trost Martin joins analysts Julie Kedzie and Megan Anderson on the broadcast.

Women have been a staple of the Invicta booth since its inception in 2012, with the MMA pioneer Kedzie providing invaluable insights to over 50 events. Anderson — a former Invicta FC featherweight champion — has been a regular on broadcasts for the past five years. Now, Trost Martin, who has served as an in-cage interviewer and backstage analyst for the promotion, steps into the booth to complete the veteran ensemble.

This is not Trost Martin’s first foray into a play-by-play role, as she has served in the same capacity for Major League Soccer’s Sporting Kansas City franchise. The University of Missouri-Columbia graduate, along with her colleagues Kedzie and Anderson, will join the likes of Mary Shane (MLB), Gayle Sierens (NFL), Sherry Ross (NHL), Leandra Reilly (NBA) and Kathy Long (UFC) as trailblazers in sports commentary history.

Invicta FC 53: DeCoursey vs. Dos Santos takes place from Reelworks Denver and kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET/6:30 p.m. MT. The night’s main card begins at 9 p.m. ET/7 p.m. MT and airs live on Invicta’s official YouTube Channel and Facebook Page, AXS TV in the U.S., Fight Network in Canada, Fox Sports in Mexico, Globo’s Combate in Brazil, DirecTV across Latin America, Viaplay and Match TV in Europe and Star Times across Africa.
