An injury to Cris “Cyborg” Justino has opened the door for Invicta FC atomweight champion Michelle Waterson to main event another UFC Fight Pass card.

Waterson will headline the December 5 Invicta FC 10 event from Houston’s Arena Theatre against Herica Tiburcio. Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp made the announcement Saturday night, citing an injury to Cyborg.

Cyborg, a former Strikeforce champion, was expected to make her bantamweight debut and possibly clear the first hurdle towards a bout in the UFC. No timetable was given for her return.

Waterson (12-3) earned a third round TKO victory over Yasuko Tamada on Invicta’s Fight Pass debut this past September. Tiburcio (8-2) was forced off this past Saturday’s card due to visa issues.

The only other bout announced for the night features bantamweights Cindy Dandois (5-1) and Tonya Evinger (14-5). More fight announcements are expected in the coming days.
