Press Release – Invicta Fighting Championships announced the full fight card for Invicta FC 10: Waterson vs Tiburcio, which will stream live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass from the Arena Theatre in Houston on Friday, December 5.
In the night’s headline bout, Invicta FC atomweight champion Michelle Waterson (12-3) will face Brazilian challenger Herica Tiburcio (8-2).
Waterson is coming off the first defense of her title, a TKO victory over Yasuko Tamada (15-9) in September. The win marked the champion’s 10th finish in 12 career victories.
Tiburcio, currently riding a three-fight winning streak, was slated to make her promotional debut at Invicta FC 9, but visa issues forced her off the card. Six of the 22-year-old challenger’s career wins have come via submission.
Red hot bantamweight contender Tonya Evinger (14-5), coming off a first-round submission of Ediane Gomes, meets Belgium’s Cindy Dandois (5-1) in the co-headline bout.
