Check out all the fighters from today’s Invicta FC 29 weigh-ins!
The Invicta FC 29 weigh-ins were anything but a dull affair on Thursday, what with flyweights Pearl Gonzalez and Bárbara Acioly going at it. But it wasn’t all hostilities, as headliners Sarah Kaufman and Katharina Lehner shared a humorous moment. That pair will be vying for the promotion’s vacant 135lb title, and both fighters came in on point for the championship bout.
In total, sixteen fighters weighed in for the event in Kansas City, MO. All but two made weight. Those two were the aforementioned Acioly, who just missed the flyweight limit at 126.3lbs, and co-main event fighter Bianca Daimoni. Daimoni came in well over the bantamweight limit at 139.6lbs, and was fined twenty-five percent of her purse as a result. Acioly was forced to endure the same punishment. Daimoni will face Pannie Kianzad in the co-headliner.
