Weird, thought Bellator would have locked VanZandt down under contract. I won't be betting heavily on this card, but I'm actually familiar with some of these fighters already and might put a small amount down, depending on the price.
Official weigh-in results. Ceremonial weigh-ins coming shortly:
Featherweight Title: Pam Sorenson (144.8) vs. Kaitlin Young (145)
Strawweight: Janaisa Morandin (119.6)* vs. Emily Ducote (115.8)

Flyweight: Stephanie Geltmacher (125.5) vs. Victoria Leonardo (125.7)

# – Coates missed the flyweight limit of 126 pounds and was fined 25 percent of her fight purse
Invicta FC 36 weigh-in:
Any early lines @JimGunn?
1xbet clones have a couple of lines. I was hoping Kaitlin Young would open as an underdog.
Lines for all fights on Royal Panda.
Really lame that the major books don't have any odds for Invicta FC again.
Invicta FC 36 Risk $253.00
Kaitlin Young (-126) vs Pam Sorenson ~$138.00 for ~$109.52
Emily Ducote (-101) vs Janaisa Morandin ~$115.00 for ~$113.86
I would have put a decent amount on Morandin.
My thinking is that Ducote is in her proper weight class at strawweight now since Bellator doesn't have it and she competed well against bigger and better opponents than Janaisa at flyweight previously. She actually has the size advantage for once and her ground game and submissions are far better than Morandin. On the feet Morandin is more active but I don't think the striking gap will be as big as some may think if Emily keeps up with Janaisa's activity level and mixes in takedown attempts. I wish I got Emily at +205 like it was apparently at Royal Panda though.
I favour Morandin but couldn't pass up Ducote +205. Also bet Norton at dog odds which didn't work out.
Emily Ducote looked great, won by knockout, but Kaitlin Young's striking didn't do enough damage and her improved ability to get up after being taken down was still not good enough against a grinder like Pam Sorenson. Tiny 0.24 unit loss.
Invicta FC 36 Results Risk $253.00
Kaitlin Young (-126) vs Pam Sorenson ~$138.00 for ~$109.52= -~$138.00
Emily Ducote (-101) vs Janaisa Morandin ~$115.00 for ~$113.86= ~$113.86
Total Loss= -~$24.14
Heh, glad this wasn't offered on Dimes. I was going off what I had seen of Ducote a few years ago in Bellator, but it appears her striking has improved significantly working at an ATT affiliate. On top of which Morandin threw a criminally stupid kick that was begging to get countered, and both her chin and recovery abilities were exposed as poor.
