Invicta Visits Las Vegas on July 10, Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino Headlines
Kansas City, Mo. — Invicta Fighting Championships is headed to Las Vegas.
The promotion will make its first trip to Nevada on Friday, July 10, as part of International Fight Week. The event will stream live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass. Headlining the event will be a featherweight title fight between champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino and a yet-to-be-determined challenger.
Cyborg successfully defended her 145-pound title at Invicta FC 11, stopping Canadian Charmaine Tweet in 46 seconds. The win marked the Brazilian’s third straight finish inside the Invicta cage.
Also slated for the July event is an atomweight title fight between Brazilian champion Herica Tiburcio and Japan’s Ayaka Hamasaki. The pair were originally expected to meet at Invicta FC 9 last fall, but after that fell through, Tiburcio submitted Michelle Waterson at Invicta FC 1o to capture the 105-pound strap.
Additional information about the event will be released in the coming months.
