Jennifer Maia defends flyweight title against Agnieszka Niedźwiedź in Invicta FC 26 main event on December 8

Invicta FC has announced that a women’s flyweight title fight between Jennifer Maia and Agnieszka Niedzwiedz will headline their twenty-sixth event on December 8.

Take a look at the official press release below:


Kansas City, Mo. — Invicta Fighting Championships will return to action on Friday, Dec. 8, from the historic Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo. The event streams live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass at 7 p.m. CT.

In the night’s main event, flyweight champion Jennifer Maia (14-4-1) will defend her 125-pound title against undefeated Polish fighter Agnieszka Niedźwiedź (10-0). Brazil’s Maia is coming off back-to-back “Fight of the Year” contenders against Roxanne Modafferi and Vanessa Porto. Niedźwiedź, meanwhile, kept her perfect record intact in May, besting the aforementioned Porto in the Invicta FC 23 main event.

The co-main event features the return of Japan’s MIZUKI (12-4) against Brazilian Janaisa Morandin (9-1). The 23-year-old MIZUKI enters the contest having won four straight, including a second-round armbar finish of Lynn Alvarez in her most recent Invicta appearance. Morandin thrilled in an action-packed bout at Invicta FC 25, taking home “Fight of the Night” honors for her battle with former champion Livia Renata Souza.

Also on the card, former flyweight title challenger Vanessa Porto (18-8) takes on Australia’s Jessica-Rose “Jessy Jess” Clark (7-4, 1 NC).

  1. Sounds like a good card so far. I’m rather surprised, though, that with it being only a little over a month away, they only have 3 fights scheduled. It would have been nice if they had Hamasaki defend her atomweight title against Frey, but since the latter is committed elsewhere, they should at least schedule a title fight for strawweight. If not a title fight, at least a couple of face-offs to determine the top two challengers for the belt there.
