Before collaborating with the UFC, Invicta was working closely with Japan-based all-women’s promotion Jewels.

Among some of those notable headliners were the likes of Cris “Cyborg” Justino as well as Waterson.

Headlining the show in her promotional debut was PFL staple and former Judo Olympic gold medalist, Kayla Harrison. Adding to her undefeated streak, Harrison defeated Courtney King by second-round TKO in a violent fashion.

Invicta has produced the likes of Cris Cyborg, Megan Anderson, Felicia Spencer, Lauren Murphy, Yana Kunitskaya, Jennifer Maia, Carla Esparza, Angela Michelle Waterson, and Rose Namajunas to name a few.

Current undisputed UFC bantamweight and featherweight championship holder, Amanda ‘The Lioness’ Nunes is a current matchmaker for the promotion, as well as UFC alum and sports pioneer, Julie ‘Fireball’ Kedzie. According to multiple sources, the promotion is set to air fights on their official YouTube channel as they begin to search for another streaming platform.
Invicta will soon have to find a home to stream to promote their fights on a larger scale which is will grant more exposure to women’s MMA.
