Invicta FC 8 targets Cris ‘Cyborg’ Santos vs Ediane Gomes


Accoring to a report by Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp is looking to hold the next instalment of the all female fighting promotion sometime in March this year, exact date to be confirmed.

In the past, Invicta FC have avoided going head-to-head with the UFC, this being said the UFC have events on March 1st, 8th, 15th and 23rd already booked. However Invicta FC officials could do what they did for Invicta FC 7, by booking a show on the same weekend as one of the UFC’s international shows, China, Brazil and of course here in the UK on March 8th.

Invicta FC are seeking to have hard-hitting knockout artist Cris ‘ Cyborg’ Santos (12-1-,1 NC) in defending her featherweight title against Ediane ‘India’ Gomes (10-2) as the Main Event, again this is yet to be confirmed.

This will be ‘Santos’ first defence of her inaugural featherweight title under the Invicta FC banner since winning the title against Marloes Coenen in July last year.

Shannon Knapp also hinted that they may also hold the next Invicta FC outside of Kansas City, Missouri where the promotion has been home to the previous last seven outings.
