If it ain't broke don't fix it. Memorial Hall in Kansas City was the setting for Invicta FC's debut back in late April. The event was streamed for free on invictafc.com and went off without a hitch. So why not schedule your second event inside of the same venue and stream it for free on the same website? That's exactly what Invicta FC is doing on July 28th and I don't think you'll hear many complaints.
While excitement has never been lacking in WMMA, establishing weight classes and stars in those very weight classes have been. If you caught the card in April - if not you can find plenty of the action here - and take a look at the second offering below, it's pretty clear that Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp is doing exactly that. She's taking a lot of the things that have worked for the UFC (Invicta has been a huge force on social media), and of course employing her own elements as well. Invicta FC is a promotion that looked like it could be exciting on paper before it's inaugural event, and has been even more exciting to watch come into fruition.
Check out the full fight card for Invicta FC 2: 'Baszler vs. McMann' as it stands today below. You can also find the video promo for this event after the break.
