Invicta FC 7: Strawweight Champ Carla Esparza Meets Claudia Gadelha

Days ago, Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp tweeted that a December card was in the works. The first official fight of the show has strawweight champ Carla Esparza defending against Claudia Gadelha.

Esparza won the 115 pound title in January. A knee injury caused her to remove herself from the July card. She’s 9-2 and won all three of her Invicta FC fights, claiming the inaugreal belt with a decision over Bec Hyatt.

Gadelha is 11-0 in her career and joined Invicta FC in July. She was a late replacement and stopped then No. 1 contender Ayaka Hamasaki.

Invicta 7 is on December 7. Besides the date and Esparza-Gadelha, the rest of the card is blank but that shouldn’t last long.
