On Friday, Aug. 9, Invicta Fighting Championships will host its 36th event from Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan.
In the night’s main event, the promotion’s vacant featherweight title will be up for grabs as Minnesota fighters Pam Sorenson and Kaitlin Young collide. The 33-year-old Sorenson will try to rebound from a failed bid for Invicta gold against Felicia Spencer last year. Young recently returned from four years away from MMA competition and has reeled off three straight wins, including back-to-back stoppages inside the Invicta cage.
The co-main event features former strawweight title challenger Janaisa Morandin, who takes on former Bellator flyweight contender Emily Ducote. The Brazilian Morandin aims to bounce back from a submission loss to then-champion Virna Jandiroba in her last outing. Oklahoma’s Ducote has spent the majority of her career competing as a flyweight, but made a successful return to 115 pounds in February of this year.
The card streams live on UFC Fight Pass beginning at 8 p.m. ET.
The fighters will hit the scales on Thursday, Aug. 8.
