Invicta FC 29 Results: Kaufman Claims Title, Kianzad Ends Skid

On Friday, May 4, Invicta Fighting Championships hosted its 29th event from the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo.

In the night’s main event, the promotion crowned a new bantamweight champion as Canadian Sarah Kaufman took on unbeaten German fighter Katharina Lehner. Kaufman, a former Strikeforce champion and UFC veteran, returned to the promotion earlier this year and defeated former No. 1 contender Pannie Kianzad by decision. Lehner, meanwhile, earned a first-round finish of Alexa Conners at Invicta FC 25 in August to earn her shot at gold.

The night’s co-main event also took place in the bantamweight division as the aforementioned Kianzad welcomed Brazilian Bianca Daimoni to the Invicta cage.
