Ediane Gomes is out of her title qualifying match Cris “Cyborg” Santos at InvictaFC 5 on April 5th. In her stead, the #8 Unified ranked featherweight Fiona Muxlow will get her shot to try to take out the former Strikeforce 145 pound champ.
Muxlow (6-2) was to take on Julia Budd, but got the call Tuesday. Muxlow is coming off a loss to #1 ranked Marloes Coenen in a short notice match on New Years Eve. She was riding a three fight win streak, and is training in Thailand for the fight.
Santos (10-1) is returning after a year and a half absence from the sport, and hopes to once again make an impact in the sport.
The winner will face #1 ranked Marloes Coenen for the initial InvictaFC featherweight title at InvictaFC 6 this summer. No word on a replacement for Budd.
InvictaFC 5 will emanate from the Ameristar Casino in Kansas City, MO April 5. The event will be streamed for $9.95 at UStream.com in true HD.
