    Looks like a tournament made to give Maverick a prettier record so that she can get in the UFC. Just like Amber Brown.

    Over half the field coming off losses. Yeesh.

    This could easily be a Bennett walls and stalls her way to victory night.

    lackluster on the names department

    if a few of them miss weight like last time, it will be a real disaster

    The idea of Invicta being able build up “names,” let alone bring any in, has been pretty much dead for a while. UFC snatches fighter’s up for late minute replacements too fast for fighters to even build a reputation first.

    At this point, just enjoy the fights.

    If anything the UFC is now building up the names for the Invicta roster, so many moving down.

    quickest way to make a name for yourself. See how well it worked for Van Buren.

    What is the purpose of this though? There's a champion and she's already scheduled to defend her title. New contender is supposed to emerge from this?

    Yeah, why not? Besides, Invicta FC has committed to doing these one night tournaments in multiple weight classes and they are fun on their own merit even if the winner gets picked up by the UFC without challenging for the Invicta FC title.
