In the days leading to InvictaFC 5, we will be previewing the historic 13 fight card, which will be held at the AmeriStar Casino in Kansas City, MO April 5. It will be broadcast on UStream in true HD for $9.95.
In a battle of featherweights, #4 ranked Julia Budd (4-2) will take on Mollie Estes.
This has been Budd’s third scheduled opponent, but it doesn’t phase one of the top contenders for the InvictaFC 145 title.
She is coming off a two first round TKO wins at Invicta. Her only losses were to UFC champ Ronda Rousey and UFC signee Amanda Nunes. A win could find her face the winner of the InvictaFC 6 featherweight title match.
Estes is taking the fight on two weeks notice. After going 7-1 as an amateur, she won in her pro debut in 2011. She lost to Olympic medalist Randi Miller at InvictaFC 1 in her last fight. A win would get her in the title hunt.
