The lineup for this summer’s Invicta Fighting Championships 6 event is now set.

In addition to three previously announced fights—the inaugural featherweight title fight between Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino and Marloes Coenen, Carla Esparza’s first defense of her strawweight title against undefeated Jewels champion Ayaka Hamasaki, and a strawweight affair between Bec Hyatt and Mizuki Inoue—the promotion has posted on its website the remaining 10 fights that will fill out the card.

Among the newly revealed contests are several notable bouts.

In what is sure to be a featherweight title eliminator to determine who fights the winner of Cyborg vs. Coenen, Ediane Gomes will meet Julia Budd. Gomes was scheduled to fight Cyborg at Invicta FC 5, but was forced to withdraw due to an injury. Budd, who has been in the cage with UFC champion Ronda Rousey, has won three straight bouts under the Invicta banner to make her case for title contention.

At bantamweight, Sarah D’Alelio will meet the undefeated Lauren Taylor. Taylor made her Invicta debut at the promotion’s fifth event and upset veteran Kaitlin Young via decision. D’Alelio is 3-1 under the Invicta banner, with notable wins over Vanessa Porto and Amanda Nunes.

Bantamweight competitor Leslie Smith, a regular Invicta “Fight of the Night” candidate, is also slated for the event, though her opponent has not yet been revealed.

At atomweight, Jessica Penne, fresh off her championship loss to Michelle Waterson, will lock horns with Nicdali Rivera-Calanoc. After losing to Amy Davis in her Invicta debut, Rivera-Calanoc scored an impressive unanimous decision victory over Angelica Chavez at Invicta FC 2.

The strawweight division receives a fair amount of attention on this card as well. In addition to the title tilt and Hyatt’s bout with Inoue, there are two other key match-ups in the 115-pound division now set for the event. Joanne Calderwood will meet Claudia Gadelha and, as first reported by MMA Rising, up-and-coming star Rose Namajunas will clash with Tecia Torres.

The event is slated to take place at the Ameristar Casino in Kansas City, Mo., on July 13. After holding its first four events at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan., the promotion switched to the Star Pavilion at the Ameristar Casino for its fifth offering and will return to the venue for its sixth show.

Broadcast plans for the event are yet to be determined. Invicta FC 5 streamed via pay-per-view on the promotion’s website for $9.95.
