Invicta is looking to crown a new strawweight champion on Friday, May 3rd in Kansas City, KS. Unfortunately for them, due to a couple busted weight cuts, two of the tournament favorites won’t be competing. Both Mizuki Inoue and Janaisa Morandin are out of the tournament, with reserves Amber Brown and Manjit Kolekar taking their places. That may leave a lot more breathing room for UFC vets Danielle Taylor and Juliana Lima to take the whole thing.
