Invicta FC is back this Thursday with its second event of the month, Invicta FC 41. Highights on the card include a featherweight bout featuring Kaitlin Young, another appearance by Erin Blanchfield, taking on Brogan Sanchez, and a main event strawweight pairing between former title challenger Janaisa Morandin against Montserrat Ruiz.
However, things hit a slight snag at Wednesday’s official weigh-in, as Morandin missed weight for the bout. Coming in at 116.9lbs, just 0.9lbs over the non-title fight strawweight limit.
Morandin was fined 25% of her purse as a result, and the bout will move forward. What that does to Morandin’s title hopes if she wins remains to be seen, but with no doubt on the line, for now, the focus is on the fight.
Full results from Wednesday’s weigh-in and a gallery of highlights can be found below. Invicta FC 41 airs live from Kansas City, Kansas on Thursday, July 30, live on UFC Fight Pass.
