Women’s MMA returns to UFC Fight Pass this Friday night as the loaded week in the sport continues. The subscription-based streaming platform will present INVICTA FC 36 live from Memorial Hall in Kansas City at 8 p.m. EDT, 7 p.m. CDT, 5 p.m. PDT on Friday.
In total, INVICTA FC 36 will feature nine mixed martial arts contests. Highlighting this event is a main event with the promotion’s vacant Featherweight championship at stake. 7-3 Pam Sorenson will fight 10-9-1 Kaitlin Young in a five-round contest.
The winner of this Friday’s main event becomes the new Featherweight champion and fourth champion in the weight class in promotion history, as previous titleholder Felicia Spencer’s reign as champ ended in March when she signed a contract with the UFC.
Heading into Friday night’s main event, Kaitlin Young is the taller contestant. She stands 5-foot-9, four inches taller than Pam Sorenson’s 5-foot-5 frame. Both fighters in this week’s main event have posted identical 3-2 records in their last five mixed martial arts fights.
For Pam Sorenson, her last fight resulted in a loss to Felicia Spencer in INVICTA FC 32 last November (fourth-round submission due to a rear-naked choke) in a championship fight during the main event, what would prove to be the latter’s final appearance for the company.
Kaitlin Young enters the main event this Friday night on a three-match winning streak and looks to build off of a third-round knockout win against Faith McMah two months ago in INVICTA FC 35.
The Tale of the Tape
Tapology shows that Kaitlin Young owns a 68-inch reach heading into the fight. No such information was accessible for Pam Sorenson.
Prediction: Kaitlin Young by unanimous decision.
