Invicta FC 17 Spotlight: Evinger vs. Schneider

Jack Encarnacao Interviews Headliners Tonya Evinger and Colleen Schneider

Invicta FC bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger has a reputation for spilling her guts, both in and out of the cage. But you’ve never heard her – or her May 7 challenger, Colleen Schneider, for that matter – quite like this before.

In the second installment of Invicta FC Radio’s special profile feature “Spotlight,” Evinger and Schneider take fans and host Jack Encarnacao into lesser-explored sides of themselves, from their starkly different upbringings to their outlooks on God, sexual orientation, regret, and adversity.

In riveting detail, these two remarkable athletes chart the life experiences that shaped the women and fighters they are today. It’s the most intimate kind of fight preview, as stark contrasts and surprising parallels reveal themselves in an audio documentary unlike any other in MMA.
