Press Release – Invicta Fighting Championships today announced the full 10-fight card for Invicta FC 14, which streams live and exclusively via UFCFIGHTPASS.com from Municipal Auditorium in Kansas City, Mo. on Saturday, Sept. 12.

Recently crowned Invicta FC Bantamweight Champion Tonya “Triple Threat” Evinger (16-5) will defend her title against undefeated 23-year-old challenger Pannie “Sexy Scramble” Kianzad (8-0) of Sweden.

The previously announced strawweight title fight between champion Livia Renata Souza and No. 1 contender Alexa Grasso has been postponed after Grasso sustained an injury that limited her ability to train and prepare for the September bout.

Undefeated under the Invicta FC banner at 4-0 and riding a seven-fight win streak overall, Evinger captured the bantamweight belt with a fourth-round TKO of Irene Aldana at Invicta FC 13. Kianzad, the Cage Warriors champion at bantamweight, made her Invicta FC debut at the same July event, earning a unanimous decision over fellow prospect Jessica-Rose Clark.

Former Invicta FC Strawweight Champion Katja “Killer Bunny” Kankaanpaa (10-2-1) looks to rebound in the co-main event against unbeaten DeAnna “The Argentine Assassin” Bennett (7-0), coming off a victory in her strawweight debut.

Hard-hitting bantamweight contender Amanda “Lioness” Nunes earned her biggest victory to date in a featured matchup tonight at UFC Fight Night 73: “Teixeira vs St. Preux” in Nashville, Tennessee. Nunes overwhelmed Sara McMann on the feet and finished her with a first-round rear-naked choke.

Nunes showcased much-improved takedown defence in tonight’s brief bout and she successfully fought off McMann’s early takedown attempts. After dropping McMann with a combination, Nunes took the Olympic medallist’s back and locked on a tight rear-naked choke for the impressive tapout win.

Bantamweight contender Jessica “Evil” Eye looks to rebound from a tough and disappointing defeat this past month when she returns to the cage on October 3rd at UFC 192: “Cormier vs Gustafsson” in Houston, Texas. Eye is set to battle TUF 18 winner Julianna “The Venezuelan Vixen” Peña.

ESPN first reported on the featured matchup this evening. Eye dropped a three-round decision to upcoming UFC title challenger Miesha “Cupcake” Tate on July 25th at UFC on FOX 16. Peña made a successful return from injury in April when she stopped Milana Dudieva at UFC Fight Night 63.

UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey retained her title with another quick and impressive victory tonight in the main event of UFC 190: “Rousey vs Correia” in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Rousey knocked out the previously unbeaten Bethe “Pitbull” Correia in just 34 seconds.

Strawweight contender Claudia “Claudinha” Gadelha made a strong case for a UFC title shot by dominating former WSOF champ Jessica “Jag” Aguilar en route to a lopsided Unanimous Decision win. Gadelha campaigned for a rematch with UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jędrzejczyk.
