The MMA Vivisection – Invicta FC 18: Grasso vs. Esquibel picks & analysis
Bloody Elbow 2.0 | Anton Tabuena

It’s Invicta time! The WMMA promotion is back with another night of fights this Friday, July 29th in Kansas City, Missouri. The fight card is a bit short on star power, but there are plenty of prospects and, as always, plenty of action expected. The headliner for the evening’s entertainment is a strawweight bout between top prospects Alexa Grasso and Jodie Esquibel. The featured co-main was supposed to be Irene Aldana vs. Taila Santos, but that bout was cancelled only a few days out, due to visa issues for Santos. Instead, Christine Stanley vs. Agnieszka Niedźwiedź has been bumped into the penultimate slot.
