2018 concludes for women’s MMA promotion, INVICTA FC, Saturday evening with INVICTA FC 33, live on UFC Fight Pass from Kansas City’s Scottish Rite Temple.
Highlighting INVICTA FC 33 is a rematch between Jihn Yu Frey (7-3) and Minna Grusander (6-2) for the Atomweight championship.
In July, Frey secured the vacant division title during the INVICTA FC 30 main event from the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City on UFC Fight Pass.
Speaking of UFC Fight Pass, the subscription-based streaming platform will stream, along with the INVICTA Fighting Championships Facebook page, three preliminaries prior to the main card on Saturday night. All told, there will be eight fights on this card.
The undercard begins at 8:30 p.m. EST/7:30 CST/5:30 PST. Main card action begins at 10 p.m. EST/9 CST/7 PST on Saturday evening, the same time that the main card of Bellator 213 begins on DAZN.
So, if you want to, you can watch the tail end of UFC on FOX 32 on your TV, then open up two tabs on your laptop to watch Bellator and INVICTA. Either that, or you could watch INVICTA on your tablet and Bellator on your phone. I won’t judge either way.
Grusander is the taller contender in this Saturday’s title fight at 5-foot-4, with Frey standing at 5-foot-2. Champion Frey has posted a 3-2 record in her last five INVICTA FC appearances, most recently winning the title fight against Grusander in July.
Challenger Grusander has posted a 4-1 record in her last five INVICTA FC appearances. Her most recent win occurred in INVICTA FC 28 vs. Fernanda Priscila by second-round knockout on Mar. 24.
