Invicta FC 48: Tanesha Tennant Vs. Olga Rubin Headline on July 22

The Invicta Fighting Championship is set to take place this July in the Kansas City area after almost 4 years.

Invicta FC 48: which will take place on July 22. Invicta's posting will be at Reelworks Denver in Denver, instead of Memorial Hall or the Police Athletic League in Kansas City.

In the headliner of the night, Taniesha "Triple Threat" Tennant (4-1) will be defending her Bantamweight crown for the first time when she faces former Bellator MMA No. 1 contender "Big Bad" Olga Rubin (7-2). Will do.

Tennant claimed the Bantamweight throne in an unconventional way. After winning the Phoenix Series 3 by 135 pounds, Tennant claimed a decisive claim against Britney Victoria Grizzelle, Hope Chase and Taylor Guardado in March 2020. Instead of fighting for the next belt, she weighed in at 145 pounds and faced former boxer Danyelle Wolf in Dana White's Contender Series. In short, she returned to Invicta and fought Lisa Verzosa for five difficult rounds in August 2021 to snatch the vacant title. Tonya Avenger hopes to become the first woman to successfully defend her bantamweight leash since she did so in 2017.

With most of his career coming in the 145-pound range, Rubin worked his way up to the 2019 Bellator title shot against Julia Budd. After losing a first-round knockout, she then attempted a comeback a few months later against Sinead Kavanagh. Just to be knocked out again. Almost two years have passed since she competed again, leaving the Bellator rank for European pastures to the Oktagon MMA rank. In November 2021, a woman known as "Big Bed" decided to part ways to return to the track on Priscilla de Souza.

The co-host event also takes place in the Bantamweight division as former German title challenger Katherine Lehner (7-3) welcomed UFC veteran Talita Bernardo (7-4) to the Invicta Cage. Lehner will compete for the fourth time under the Invicta banner. Bernardo of Brazil recently won against fellow Octagon alumnus Lucy Podilova.
