The Invicta FC all women’s promotion will be offering their fifth event on Friday, April 5 in Kansas City, Missouri. The card will be headlined by the Invicta FC atomweight champion Jessica Penne setting out to defend her title for the first time against women’s MMA veteran Michelle “The Karate Hottie” Waterson.
It took Jessica “Evil” Eye (9-1) just :58 seconds to submit Bellator strawweight women’s champ Zoila Frausto Gurgel (12-2) with a standing arm triangle choke at Bellator 83 back in December.
Speaking with ProMMAnow.com (www.prommanow.com), Jessica explained what the win meant to her:
“It was the greatest moment of my life. I feel like people finally gave me the respect that I deserve after I got that. And I think that people think that I didn’t have a submission game, so it kind of shut them up. Zoila kind of fell right into it too, and the height advantage that I had over her really made it a lot easier for me to get it.”
