Invicta FC was in Denver, Colorado on Wednesday night, with Invicta FC 48 a rare road show for the all-female fighting promotion.
In the main event, a bantamweight title fight saw Taneisha Tennant attempt to make the first defense of her 135lb title, against former Bellator MMA title challenger Olga Rubin. “Triple Threat” had won the title last August against Lisa Verzosa, after coming up short against boxer Danyelle Wolf on Dana White’s Contender Series.
The Invicta FC 48 co-feature, meanwhile, saw UFC vet Talita Bernardo paired up with another Brazilian fighter with strong jiu-jitsu credentials in Yana Gadelha.
Also in action on Wednesday night, Bellator MMA veteran Kristina “Warhorse” Williams, who went 3-3 in Bellator from 2017 to 2020. Williams was in search of her third consecutive win, and second inside the Invicta cage, when she took on Liana Pirosin of Brazil.
