Lindsey VanZandt (3-0), the newly signed Invicta FC atomweight fighter joined Kyle Carroll on his Carroll’s Corner MMA Podcast. On the show, VanZandt shows her excitement for signing with the world’s largest all-female mixed martial arts organization. VanZandt enters the Invicta Cage on September first when she fights Kelly D’Angelo (2-2) in the third fight of the evening. Invicta FC 31 takes place at the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Missouri. The entire card will be aired on UFC Fight Pass.

After a strong start to her professional career, VanZandt suffered a minor set back when she broke her wrist. Allowing time for her wrist to heal properly, she mentions in the interview how her manager surprised her with the Invicta FC contract. VanZandt also speaks about how she snuck away for her first amateur bout and how her parents don’t approve of her fighting, as they expect her to have a traditional 9-5 job.

The young atomweight fighter speaks about how her college education in nutrition has helped her eat properly, allowing her to enter the cage at her peak. Throughout the interview, excitement was pouring out of VanZandt as she kept mentioning it was a dream come true to sign with Invicta FC.
