On Saturday, November 1, 2014 Invicta FC heads to the River Center in Davenport, IA for Invicta FC 9: Honchak vs. Hashi.

Remember when Dana White said that women would never fight in the UFC? Oh, how the times have changed. Now Ronda Rousey is arguably the biggest star for the UFC, and the organization is adding a second women’s division and will be crowning the inaugural champion of that division through The Ultimate Fighter. In addition to that, the UFC has partnered with the all-women’s promotion Invicta FC to show their cards on their exclusive streaming service UFC Fight Pass.

If you are a fan of high-level women’s MMA then Invicta FC: 9 is a can’t miss event.

Kaitlin Young

Just looking at Young’s record you may not think she is a must watch — you would be wrong. Young is a top talent and a dangerous striker and she has competed against some of the best female fighters in the world. Young is exciting and she likes to push the pace and press the action. In four outings, Young has yet to win under the Invicta banner so look for her to be extra motivated coming into this bout.

Mizuki Inoue

Inoue is simply one of the best prospects in all of MMA, having won the Jewels Rough Stone Grand Prix in 2010 at just 16. Inoue is an accomplished kickboxer and has a dynamite ground game, making her one of the most dangerous fighters in the world. Keep your eye on Inoue because she is going to be a star in this sport.

Barb Honchak vs. Takayo Hashi

In the main event of the evening Invicta flyweight champion Honchak looks to defend her title against Jewels champion and women’s MMA pioneer Hashi. Both of these fighters have a ton of experience and they are going to put on a show Saturday night.
