Later this month there is a scheduled Invicta FC show, weeks before their one year anniversary. With four shows to date, the promotion’s president Shannon Knapp looks to keep their momentum going.
One of the next steps involves landing a TV channel deal.
“I think we’re going to surprise a lot of people in 2013,” said Knapp to MMA Fighting. “Nothing is concrete. Something could fall through. But there are a lot of good things happening with Invicta and a partnership. I feel confident 2013 is the year we’ll find our home.”
Knapp’s ultimate goal would be for Invicta FC to host around 10 shows per year. Without a TV deal, that number can’t surpass six shows. The upcoming show will be the second of the year and late June or early July is looking like the third card of 2013. The president also mentioned that the promotion plans to remain in Kansas City.
Invicta FC 5 is April 5 out of the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, MO. The show is highlighted with atomweight champion Jessica Penne vs. Michelle Waterson and Barb Honchak vs. Vanessa Porto for the inaugural flyweight championship.
