After confirming her pregnancy, Laura Sanko has pulled out of her upcoming bout at Invicta FC 6: Coenen vs. Cyborg.

Robb, 0-1 since making her professional debut in January, was submitted by Sanko via a second-round rear naked choke at Invicta FC 4. Von Plettenberg will make the drop to 105lbs following her decision loss to Joanne Calderwood at Invicta FC 4
