Invicta FC 41 gets date and location; Janaisa Morandin vs. Montserrat Ruiz to headline

Recommended Posts

Returning from a pandemic-induced hiatus, Invicta FC has gotten the ball rolling on its upcoming schedule.

The promotion recently announced Invicta FC 40 for July 2 – and now has now finalized Invicta FC 41 for later in the same month.

Invicta FC will be held on Thursday, July 30 in Kansas City, Kan., according to a press release issued by the promotion on Tuesday. The event will stream on UFC Fight Pass.

The event will be held behind closed doors, without fans or media. Fighters will be tested for COVID-19 prior to the event.

In the main event, former Invicta FC strawweight title contender Janaisa Morandin returns to action to take on Mexico’s Montserrat Ruiz.

Morandin (10-3 MMA) looks to snap a two-fight losing skid after finish losses to Virna Jandiroba and Emily Ducote. The 24-year-old strawweight has dropped three of her most recent four fights.

Mexico’s Ruiz (8-1 MMA) hasn’t competed since her promotional debut at Invicta FC 33 in December 2018. On that card, she lost to former UFC fighter Danielle Taylor by unanimous decision.

The co-headliner features rising flyweight star Erin Blanchfield as she’ll look to continue her winning ways against Stephanie Geltmacher.

Blanchfield (5-1 MMA) aims to keep up her recent success by picking up her third straight victory. Geltmacher (4-1 MMA) looks to get back in the win column after suffering her first career defeat to Victoria Leonardo at Invicta FC 36 in August 2019.

Also on the card, longtime MMA veteran Kaitlin Young (10-10 MMA) fights Latoya Walker (5-1 MMA); Cynthia Arceo (5-2-1 MMA) battles Itzel Esquivel (4-2 MMA); Caitlin Sammons (2-0 MMA) fights Claire Guthrie (1-0 MMA), and Natalya Speece (0-0 MMA) takes on Alexa Culp (0-0 MMA).

In summary, the current Invicta FC 41 lineup below:

Janaisa Morandin vs. Montserrat Ruiz Erin Blanchfield vs. Stephanie Geltmacher Kaitlin Young vs. Latoya Walker Cynthia Arceo vs. Itzel Esquivel Caitlin Sammons vs. Claire Guthrie Natalya Speece vs. Alexa Culp
