One of the UFC’s fastest rising female stars, “12 Gauge” Paige VanZant, makes her return to the Octagon on September 5th at UFC 191 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The popular 21-year-old is expected to face off against Australia’s Alex Chambers in a featured strawweight bout on the card.

Fox Sports first confirmed the targeted date for the fight following a report from MMASucka.com. VanZant is coming off of a one-sided domination of Felice “Lil’ Bulldog” Herrig at UFC on FOX 15 in April. Chambers rallied back from the brink of defeat and submitted Kailin Curran at UFC Fight Night 65.

Undefeated Ukrainian prospect Maryna “The Iron Woman” Moroz looks for her second UFC victory when she steps back into the cage on August 23rd at UFC Fight Night 74: “Holloway vs Oliveira” in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. Moroz is set to battle Valérie “Trouble” Létourneau on the card.

UFC officials announced the strawweight matchup on Wednesday. Moroz shocked fans in her Octagon debut when she submitted heavy favourite Joanne “JoJo” Calderwood at UFC Fight Night 64. Former bantamweight Létourneau made a successful 115-pound debut with a win at UFC 186.

UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk successfully retained her title with a brutal third-round stoppage victory tonight at UFC Fight Night 69: “Jędrzejczyk vs Penne” in Berlin, Germany. Jędrzejczyk battered and bloodied Jessica Penne en route to a dominant TKO triumph.

Once again showcasing her much-improved takedown defence, Jędrzejczyk repeatedly thwarted Penne’s efforts to take the fight to the mat. On the feet, she picked the former Invicta FC champion apart with vicious elbows, head kicks and punching flurries until the one-sided fight was finally waved off.

It was not the exciting performance that many had hoped for, but Tecia “The Tiny Tornado” Torres kept her perfect pro record intact with a Unanimous Decision victory tonight at UFC 188: “Velasquez vs Werdum” in Mexico City, Mexico. Torres outpointed Angela “Overkill” Hill in a main card matchup.

Though best known for her formidable striking skills, Torres opted to take the fight with Hill to the ground on multiple occasions, but Hill defended well in each round. Torres was never able to mount any sustained offence, but her takedowns and clinch control were enough to secure the decision victory.

Press Release – Invicta Fighting Championships is headed to Las Vegas with a championship tripleheader.

The promotion will make its first trip to Nevada on Thursday, July 9, as part of International Fight Week. The event takes place from The Chelsea at the Cosmopolitan and will stream live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.

Headlining the event will be a featherweight title fight between champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (13-1, 1 NC) and New Zealand’s Faith Van Duin (5-1). Cyborg successfully defended her 145-pound title at Invicta FC 11, stopping Canadian Charmaine Tweet in 46 seconds. The win marked the Brazilian’s third straight finish inside the Invicta cage. Van Duin made her promotional debut at Invicta FC 12 in April and submitted Amanda Bell in the second round with a schoolyard choke.

In the night’s co-main event, a new bantamweight champion will be crowned as Tonya Evinger (15-5) locks horns with Mexico’s Irene Aldana (5-1). Evinger enters the title affair riding a six-fight winning streak, including three straight in the Invicta cage. Aldana, meanwhile, has scored back-to-back first-round stoppages over Peggy Morgan and Colleen Schneider under the Invicta banner.

Also slated for the July event is an atomweight title fight between Brazilian champion Herica Tiburcio (9-2) and Japan’s Ayaka Hamasaki (11-1). The pair were originally expected to meet at Invicta FC 9 last fall, but when that fell through, Tiburcio submitted Michelle Waterson at Invicta FC 10 to capture the 105-pound strap.

The full seven-fight card for Invicta FC 13 can be found below:

Featherweight Title: Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (13-1, 1 NC) vs Faith Van Duin (5-1)
