Shawnee, Oklahoma– Invicta 32 will invade sooner land with a nine fight action packed card. This will have plenty of back stories to go along with it. None bigger than the main event that will feature Pam “Bam” Sorenson (7-2) comes in winning five of her last six with the only belmish coming against veteran Ediane Gomez back at Invicta 23. “Bam” will take on the unbeaten Felicia “Feenom” Spencer. Spencer is no stranger to the Invicta cage as all have came under their banner with her most recent victory came against the then unbeaten Helena Kolesnyk. With this contest expect plenty of action I personally hope it goes to the championship rounds to test both of these talented athletes.
The Co-Main Event will pit two amazing fighters that have seen their share of wars inside the cage. Mizuki Inoue (12-5) will take on Brazilian Viviane Pereira (13-2). Not to put a damper of these athletes but Mizuki missed weight and will have to give up 25% of her purse. That a side this is a fight that fans should be very excited about. Pereira comes over from the UFC banner going 2-2 for the promotion dropping her last two. One would think that she will be fighting with a chip on her shoulder. Mizuki has gone through the gauntlet of the who’s who and you can expect her to dictate the pace in this one.
The Atomweights will take center stage as Ashley “Smashley” Cummins (6-4) will look to give Jessica Delboni (7-0) her first loss as a pro. Many things have changed for “Smashley” as she said good bye to the Wolve’s Den that molded her but also to her fellow St. Louis police officers making the full time move to San Diego to continue serving as a police officer but to begin training full time as well. For Delboni this will be her first fight outside of Brazil so that could be a factor as well. Both of these women come in with incredible confidence and this one could go to the judges.
Kaitlin Young (8-9) will do away with her matchmaking duties to once again step back in the cage. She knocked what some may call cage rust back at Rizin 12 picking up a decision win over Reina Miura. She will be taking on Sarah “Primal” Patterson (5-4) at a catchweight of 150 unfortunately Patterson came in over and will give up 25% of her purse. Patterson hasnt been inside the cage in almost two years so that could definitely be a factor. I think this could be a sneaky fight of the night contender.
The battle of the prospects at bantamweight will be on display as Alexa Conners (5-2) comes in winning five of her last six and is looking to impress Shannon Knapp and company with at statement. In turn “The Raging Panda” Julia Avila (5-1) will be looking to do the same. Winning on this stage could leap frog the Raging Panda into the minds of the casual fan. Look for this one to be crazy fast paced and a great watch regardless of who you may be rooting for this is a winner for all MMA fans.
The Flyweights will take to the cage as Kay Hansen (3-1) will take on Erin Blanchfield (2-0). Two of Hansen’s three wins have come under the Invicta banner and she will look to make it a third. Blanchfield on the other hand will look to add a two in a row for the promotion. Again these are to gladiators looking to make a statement.
Bantamweights will be under the lights as Liz Tracy (5-2) winner of four of her last five in a short time Tracy has fought some of best Flyweights so it should be interesting to see how her body responds going up a class. She is set to go to up against Stephanie Geltmacher (3-0). Geltmacher will look to stay perfect under the Invicta banner. Will that happen? Hard to say this to me is a pick em fight.
The first to fights of the night will include Bantamweights Chelsea Chandler who will look for her first win against Mitzi Merry will look to remain an unbeaten to lead off the card. Followed by straweights Isis Verbeek will be making her pro debut against the formatable Kathryn Paprocki who will look to add a second professional win.
