Invicta FC 3 Wiki

Invicta FC 3: Penne vs Sugiyama is an upcoming mixed martial arts event to be held on October 6, 2012 at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kansas. Invicta President Shannon Knapp has announced that the event will feature the first championship bout for Invicta Fighting Championships.

 Invicta will continue their partnership with JEWELS as Jessica Penne will face unbeaten JEWELS Featherweight Queen (105 lb.) Naho Sugiyama for the Invicta FC Atomweight Championship. Sara McMann was originally scheduled to fight for Invicta FC Bantamweight Championship but will be recovering from injury. Knapp has since announced that a fight will be held to determine who eventually faces McMann for the championship.

 On August 27, Invicta added former Strikeforce women's champion Sarah Kaufman to the card in a fight against Kaitlin Young. However on September 17, Kaufman was forced to withdraw due to injury. Leslie Smith was originally scheduled to fight Cat Zingano, but the promotion allowed Zingano to withdraw from the fight so that she could accept a fight for Strikeforce.

 Zingano was replaced by pro boxer and undefeated MMA fighter, Kim Connor-Hamby. Katalina Malungahu was scheduled to fight Taylor Stratford, however Stratford was forced to withdraw due to a knee injury. Stratford was replaced by Ediane Gomes. Sarah Kaufman was set to fight Kaitlin Young, however an injury forced Kaufman to withdraw from the fight on September 17. As a result, Leslie Smith was moved from her fight with Connor-Hamby to fight Young in what will be a rematch from Invicta FC 1 where they fought to a draw. Raquel Pennington was added as the new opponent for Kim Connor-Hamby. 

On September 26, Connor-Hamby withdrew from the fight due to injury. After Strikeforce canceled their previously scheduled event, Cat Zingano was added back to the Invicta 3 card as the replacement opponent against Pennington. Julia Budd was set to fight Elaina Maxwell but Maxwell withdrew after suffering a concussion in training and was replaced by Danielle West.
