Headlining the all female MMA event at Invicta FC 32 is the featherweight title fight between Pam Sorenson and Felicia Spencer. The title was made vacant after Megan Anderson signed with the UFC last year,
Saturday’s victor will be the third featherweight champ in the organization’s history, following on from Anderson and Cris Cyborg.
Felicia “The Feenom” Spencer is twenty-seven-years-old, fighting with The Jungle MMA out of Winter Park, Florida. She is currently undefeated with a record of five wins and zero losses. All five of her professional bouts have been with Invicta, two of which were fought on the same card as Tonya Evinger. Evinger, a fan of Spencers’s was in attendance for Spencer’s third Invicta win when she made Amy Coleman tap in the first round of Invicta FC 24.
Spencer has finished three of her five fights, but that’s not enough for her. “I want to finish every time I fight,” Spencer said after Coleman tapped. Fans are bewildered at why she was not chosen to compete in The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights, as Spencer is one of the top female featherweight fighters. However, she did get her wish when, after submitting Helena Kolesnyk in Invicta FC 30, she called out Pam Sorenson for a title fight.
Pam “Bam” Sorenson is a 32 year old featherweight fighting with The Cellar Fight and Fitness out of Blaine, Minnesota. Sorenson has a record of seven wins and two losses, but she is relatively new to the featherweight class, having previously fought six of her nine bouts in the bantamweight division where she boasts wins over fighters Nicco Montano and Jessica Rose-Clarke along with a KOTC bantamweight belt.
Sorenson moved up to featherweight, citing that she would be more comfortable at a heavier weight. Her first fight in the one-hundred and forty-five pound division was a good contest, but ended in a split decision loss to Ediane Gomes. Her second fight she made an impressive first round submission against Helena Kolesnyk in Invicta FC 24. In her last showing, almost one year ago, she pulled off a split decision win against Jan Finney in IT Fight Series 77.
This Friday, November 16th Sorenson will take on Felica Spencer, a fighter who seems to have her cardio under control. Spencer often looks fresh going into second and third rounds, even smiling excitedly. This kind of sustained energy will work in her favor if this championship goes into fourth or fifth rounds. However, Sorenson has an excellent take down defense, often ending up on top when her opponents try to take her to the ground. Sorenson could use this to her advantage and end the fight early, not allowing Spencer to go the distance.
Invicta FC 32 will take place this Friday, November 16th on UFC Fight Pass. Invicta FC will set out to prove that they still have top talent in the featherweight division. This is definitely a fight to watch as it will showcase the up and coming fighters of a new generation.
