The event scheduled to be headlined by Valesca Machado defending her strawweight championship against Danni McCormack. Montserrat Rendon was scheduled to fight Alexa Conners, but Conners was forced to withdraw and was replaced by Maria Favela. Favela later withdrew from the fight and the bout was removed from the card. Ramona Pascual was scheduled to fight Amber Leibrock but Leibrock withdrew after signing with PFL and was replaced by Kaylee Vos. However, Pascual was then unable to compete and the bout was removed from the card.

Invicta Fighting Championships will once again touch down in Colorado’s capital, hosting Invicta FC 52: Machado vs. McCormack from Reelworks Denver on Wednesday, March 15.

The event will feature the first title defense for strawweight champion Valesca “Tina Black” Machado (12-3), who collides with Ireland’s Danni “Mac” McCormack (6-2). Both fighters were in action at Invicta FC 50 in November, with Machado defeating both Karolina Wójcik and Ediana Silva to capture the 115-pound tournament and championship belt. McCormack was also victorious that night, besting Brazilian Maira Mazar on the scorecards.

In the night’s co-main event, the aforementioned Karolina “Polish Assassin” Wójcik (10-3) and Ediana “Mel Pitbull” Silva (12-3) look to rebound after falling short in their most recent bouts. Wójcik topped UFC veteran Gloria de Paula to reach the strawweight tournament final before dropping a decision to the champion Machado. Silva similarly pushed Machado to the limits in their semifinal match-up, but ultimately fell short in the eyes of the judges.

Also on the card, undefeated Mexican bantamweight Montserrat “Monster” Rendon (5-0) meets veteran Alexa Conners (6-4), California’s Amber “Touch ‘Em Up” Leibrock (6-4) welcomes Hong Kong native Ramona Pascual (6-5) back to the Invicta cage at featherweight, and Colombia’s Sayury Cañon (2-0) takes on fellow strawweight newcomer Amanda Macioce (1-0). Additional bouts for the event will be announced at a later date.

Invicta FC 52: Machado vs. McCormack will be overseen by the Colorado Combative Sports Commission and will feature open scoring.
