Invicta Fighting Championships announced  today the location and full fight card for Invicta FC 11, which will stream live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass live from Shrine Auditorium on Friday, February 27.

Set to headline the card is an Invicta FC Featherweight title fight between reigning champion Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino and  Canadian challenger Charmaine ‘Not So Sweet’ Tweet.

Cyborg (12-1) was originally scheduled to headline Invicta FC 10 last December, but was forced off the card after suffering a full thickness rupture of the anterior talofibular ligament in her left ankle. She has not competed in MMA since July of 2013 when she defeated Marloes Coenen via fourth-round TKO at Invicta FC 6 to capture the belt at 145-pounds.

After competing in the first lightweight bout in Invicta FC history, Tweet (6-4)  returns to the featherweight division having won five of her last six fights. In that most recent appearance, at Invicta FC 8 in September of 2014, she stopped Veronica Rothenhausler via first-round TKO to pick up her sixth career first round finish.

Also appearing on the card is strawweight matchup between a pair of the divisions best strikers in undefeated 21-year-old Alexa Grasso (6-0) and 20-year-old Japanese prospect Mizuki Inoue (8-3).

Here is how the rest of the card is shaping up:
