On a rare weekend without a UFC event, MMA fans will turn to the all-female promotion Invicta FC for their dose of regulated violence. The event, which eminates from Davenport, Iowa, features a flyweight title fight between Barb Honchak and Takayo Hashi atop the card. That contest will be preceded by a co-main event between strawweights Mizuki Inoue and Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
Honchak earned the Invicta FC flyweight title in 2013 when she defeated Vanessa Porto via unanimous decision. She has since successfully defended the title against Leslie Smith but is yet to fight in 2014. Her match-up against Japanese submission specialist Takayo Hashi will serve as her first contest this year. She has not lost in over four year, stretching back to her third professional fight in 2010.
The entire event streams live on FightPass at 9:00pm ET and takes place at the RiverCenter in Davenport Iowa.
