A million dollars to the first reader who can tell me which weight class constitutes the strawweight division. Too late, it’s the 115-pounders. How do I know? Because Claudia Gadelha (Pictured) and Carla Esparza will battle to become Invicta’s inaugural strawweight champion in the promotion’s fourth show. A bantamweight tilt between Shayna Baszler and Alexis Davis serves as the co-featured attraction. Invicta FC 4 takes place January 5th inside Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas. No word on how the all-women’s mixed martial arts promotion plans on making the fights available for viewing. Here is the event’s current roster: Preliminary Card: Tecia Torres vs. Paige VanZant Emily Kagan vs. Rose Namajunas Jodie Esquibel vs. Liz McCarthy Amanda Bell vs. Tamikka Brents Stephanie Frausto vs. Cassie Rodish Katalina Malungahu vs. Veronica Rothenhausler Main Card: Leslie Smith vs. TBD Joanne Calderwood vs. Bec Hyatt Ediane Gomes vs. Hiroko Yamanaka Sarah D’Alelio vs. Amanda Nunes Shayna Baszler vs. Alexis Davis Carla Esparza vs. Claudia Gadelha (Inaugural strawweight title)
