Invicta FC finally returned to action on June 28, 2024 with Invicta FC 55 topped by a bantamweight title fight.

The all-female fighting promotion led by President Shannon Knapp has not been seen since 2023, with rumors of their demise making the rounds in recent months. Knapp, however, had other plans, and Invicta now returns with a new U.S. broadcast partner in CBS Sports Network, which briefly housed Bellator MMA a couple of years back.

For Invicta FC 55, the promotion is back in familiar territory, with the event housed in the confines of the Memorial Hall in St. Louis, MO. Topping the card, former UFC fighter turned Invicta bantamweight champ Talita Bernardo, making the first defense of her title against former Bellator MMA women’s featherweight Olga Rubin.

Back in 2019, Rubin challenged then-champ Julia Budd for the Bellator belt, coming up short. She made her way to Invicta FC in 2022, losing a title fight against Taneisha Tennant before putting together back-to-back wins over Serena DeJesus and Claire Guthrie.

Also on the card, the return of UFC alum Kay Hansen.
