Invicta FC 53 weigh-in results – Jillian DeCoursey vs. Rayanne dos Santos
On Tuesday, May 2, Invicta Fighting Championships hosted the weigh-ins for Invicta FC 53: DeCoursey vs. Dos Santos, which takes place Wednesday, May 3 from ReelWorks Denver.
In the night’s headliner, recently crowned atomweight champion “Lionheart” Jillian DeCoursey (6-3) puts her strap on the line opposite Brazil’s Rayanne dos Santos (13-6). New York’s DeCoursey cemented herself atop the 105-pound division with a pair of dominant first-round finishes. After crushing Lindsey VanZandt in 61 seconds at Invicta FC 47, DeCoursey dethroned Jéssica Delboni at Invicta FC 49 to capture gold. The 27-year-old Dos Santos made a quick impression on the division in January, besting veteran Katie Saull to earn her sixth victory in her last seven bouts and establish herself as the No. 1 contender.
The co-main event will take place in the bantamweight division as former title challenger “Big Bad” Olga Rubin (8-3) collides with Denver native “Grizzly” Claire Guthrie (5-1). Both fighters were victorious at Invicta FC 51 in January, with Rubin topping Serena DeJesus and Guthrie besting Auttumn Norton, both via decision.
