With InvictaFC 2 vastly approaching, Wombat Sports will be doing previews of the fighters this next week. InvictaFC 2 will be live in Kansas City, KS and available outside KC streaming live and free on InvcitaFC.com July 28.
In a fight that will open Invicta 2, two of the best amateur atomweights will be making their pro debuts. Wrestler Jess Philippus will take on submission specialist Liz McCarthy.
Philippus (7-1 ammy) was to fight on InvictaFC 1, but having just came off birth from her second child, would have had trouble making weight. Philippus instead took up another amateur fight, winning a over Amanda Hein gaining her fourth career submission.
Liz McCarthy (6-0 ammy) has also got a solid ground game, having three submission in her amateur career. The Oregon native executed a rarely seen flying triangle on Jordan McDonald to gain the Tuff-n-uff MMA 110 title. She is has been dominate in the western states gaining the Budo Fights (105) and Full Contact Fighting Federation (115) belts.
With McCarthy’s jiu-jistu skills and Philippus’s wrestling background, expect this fight to be an exciting ground battle.
