Invicta FC announces first card on UFC Fight Pass

July 11, 2014

MMA Fighting reports that Invicta FC’s first card on the UFC Fight Pass will be on September 6th from Kansas City, Missouri.  The announcement was made during a conference call on Thursday in which the promotion was described as part of the “UFC Family.”

Via MMA Fighting:

The show will be the all-female organization’s first in nine months, and is expected to be headlined by duel title bouts, with Stephanie Eggink (4-1) and Katja Kankaanpaa (9-1-1) vying for the vacant Invicta FC strawweight title in the night’s co-main event, and atomweight champion Michelle Waterson (11-3) attempting the first defense of her belt against Yasuko Tamada (15-8-3) as the headlining attraction.

Payout Perspective:

On the conference call, it sounded like the UFC would assist Invicta with further distribution of its product.  We will see how this relationship progresses.

The conference call also included the announcement that the Invicta FC library would be available on the UFC Fight Pass.  It’s a win-win for the UFC and Invicta.  For the UFC, it adds more content for the digital network which has been an overall success.  It also serves as a quasi-lead to the upcoming TUF 20 season which should debut in September.  The 20th season will feature the new women’s straw weight division. For Invicta, it gives it the platform it desperately needed especially with the news that Ustream, its iPPV provider, has gone out of the iPPV business.  Also, the UFC relationship looks like it will help them broker further distribution deals.

    The UFC HQ has been mentioned and talked in the comments section of mmapayout about a long time ago. Don’t know why they would get nervous.

    Jesus D, build 10 fuckin buildings, no one gives a shit when your selling 100k ppvs and cancelling the other ones.

    Hopefully they build a big ballroom so they can have a great going away party when the UFC folds in 5 years

    This building will be part of the assets when they try to sell the promotion, and it will cut production costs of renting facilities.

    actually, no, the new facility will be the home base of production being made in anticipation for launching a North American (U.S.A. and Canada) UFC Network 24/7 subscription/cable channel. and yes there will still be exclusive Fight Pass cards (huge amount) and exclusive various content (mass varietal amount of MMA, grappling, boxing, etc.) as well. around this time Fight Pass will likely have its final transformation into an all around Fight Pass (not just UFC and MMA). everything fighting and everything to do with the styles that combine to form MMA

Got something to say?
