Invicta FC 46 goes down Wednesday night in Kansas City, with a flyweight title fight topping the card.
That fight will see champ Karina Rodriguez put her belt on the line in an immediate rematch with Daina Torquato — though that was not the original plan. Initially, Rodriguez was supposed to face Torquato’s fellow Brazilian, Ketlen Souza. However, with Souza forced off the card, Torquato was bumped up to the main event.
Both fighters made weight on Friday. The Invicta FC 46 card will also see a handful of other familiar names: former UFC fighters Milana Dudieva and Danielle Taylor both appear. Additionally, Kristina Williams, a six-fight Bellator MMA veteran with wins over boxing champ Heather Hardy and current Invicta strawweight champion Emily Ducote will also appear. Making her promotional debut, Williams is set to face Flore Hani.
One fighter missed weight for the card during Tuesday’s weigh-in: Liz Tracy hit the scales at 117.8lbs for her strawweight fight against Danielle Taylor. That fight will proceed, but one other will not. Fatima “The Archangel” Kline vs. Nadia Vera has been scratched; no reason has been given for the bout’s removal from the card.
