Invicta FC 6 is looking to add a pair of strawweight bouts, with Invicta FC strawweight champion Carla Esparza facing Ayaka Hamasaki and fan favorite Bec Hyatt facing Mizuki Inoue. Invicta FC 6 is currently being targeted for this summer and will likely remain in Kansas City, Missouri. MMARising first reported the prospective match-ups.
Esparza will be looking to defend her title for the first time since winning the title at Invicta FC 4. Esparza won the title in an absolute dogfight with late-replacement Bec Hyatt. Her opponent, Ayaka Hamasaki, is currently undefeated at 9-0. Hamasaki picked up a victory at Jewels 22nd Ring over Emi Fujino. The Megumi Fujii-trained fighter last competed in Invicta at Invicta FC 2, where she defeated Lacey Schuckman.
In the second targeted bout, fan favorite Bec Hyatt will take on Japanese star and Jewels-veteran Mizuki Inoue. Hyatt was last in action at Invicta FC 5, where she destroyed Jasminka Cive with an armbar. Inoue is riding a three-fight win streak into the bout with Hyatt.
Invicta FC 6 will be headlined by the inaugural Invicta FC featherweight title fight as Marloes Coenen takes on Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos.
