Invicta Fighting Championships has revealed the entire fight card for Invicta FC 10: Waterson vs. Tiburcio which takes place Friday, Dec. 5 in Houston.
The event will be headlined by the promotion’s atomweight champion, Michelle Waterson, who will square off with Brazil’s Herica Tiburcio.
Waterson enters her second title defense riding a six-fight winning streak, including three straight inside the Invicta cage. The 28-year-old was in action less than two months ago at Invicta FC 8, where she scored a third-round TKO of Yasuko Tamada. The win marked the Jackson’s MMA product’s 10th finish in 12 career victories.
Tiburcio, meanwhile, was originally slated to make her promotional debut at Invicta FC 9 on Nov. 1 against Japan’s Ayaka Hamasaki, but was forced off the card due to visa issues. The 22-year-old has tasted defeat just twice in her career. Six of Tiburcio’s eight career wins have come via submission.
The night’s co-main event will feature the red-hot Tonya Evinger against Belgium’s Cindy Dandois. Evinger has won five straight, including back-to-back wins over Ediane Gomes and Sarah D’Alelio in the Invicta cage. Dandois will be making her promotional debut.
Also on the card will be two pivotal contests in the flyweight division as former title challenger Vanessa Porto returns to face UFC veteran Roxanne Modafferi and unbeaten DeAnna Bennett meets Brazil’s Jennifer Maia. The event will also feature the return of Mexico’s Alexa Grasso and Irene Aldana
