In the aftermath of Invicta’s fourth event back in January, it seemed like the biggest storyline was about the unreliable Internet pay-per-view stream — which kept the majority of fans from seeing the fights — rather than the fights themselves. The situation was improved in the promotion’s next outing, but not entirely. So we’re psyched to hear that Invicta FC 6: Coenen vs. Cyborg will be available to watch on our trusty televisions, through a new pay-per-view partnership with Integrated Sports Media. From a press release distributed yesterday:

“We are excited about bringing the Invicta FC brand of women’s world championship Mixed Martial Arts to television for the first time with this tremendous rematch between two of the world’s top women fighters,” said Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp. “This is yet another step forward for women’s MMA and we are extremely proud to be leading the charge.”

“Invicta FC 6,” presented by Invicta Fighting Championships, is being distributed in North America by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 9:00 p.m. ET – 6:00 p.m. PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DISH, Avail-TVN in the United States and Bell TV in Canada, for a suggested retail price of only $14.95.

The price is slightly higher than Invicta’s iPPV offerings in the past, but at least you’ll actually be able to see the fights this time. Check out the full Invicta FC 6 lineup after the jump, and let us know…would you pay for it?

(Video via YouTube.com/CagePotato)

Fresh off her one-round devastation of Fiona Muxlow at Invicta FC 5 in April, former Strikeforce champion Cristiane “Cris Cyborg” Justino Venancio will return to the cage against Marloes Coenen at Invicta FC 6 on July 13th, in a bout that will determine the first Invicta featherweight champion.

CagePotato.com reporter Brian J. D’Souza caught up to Cyborg at The Gym @ 99 Sudbury in Toronto, where they discussed her journey from handball player to dominant mixed martial artist, the contract terms that kept her from signing with the UFC, and her upcoming rematch with Coenen. Plus, Cyborg spoke out about her current relationships with her manager Tito Ortiz and her ex-husband Evangelista Santos, and the differences between sparring with men and women.

Rose Namajunas Returns Against Tecia Torres at Invicta FC 6 in July


(Must-see: This “All Angles” mini-documentary on Rose’s fantastic win earlier this month. Props: YouTube.com/InvictaFC)

Attention, fans of flying armbars and blood-drinking: CagePotato sponsored fighter Rose Namajunas has been officially booked to return at Invicta FC 6: Cyborg vs. Coenen II, July 13th at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri. Her opponent will be Tecia “Tiny Tornado” Torres, an American Top Team-bred strawweight who most recently won a lopsided decision against Paige VanZant at Invicta FC 4 in January.

While both women hold pro records of 2-0, Torres can claim to be slightly more experienced, as she went 7-0 as an amateur compared to Rose’s 4-0 amateur record. Before her MMA career, Torres also competed extensively as an amateur kickboxer. Even at age 6, she was pretty nasty.

It’s a solid step up in competition for Rose — and we have total faith that Thug will be able to give the Tiny Tornado all she can handle. Stay tuned for more coverage on Rose Namajunas and Invicta FC 6, and check out the complete fight lineup after the jump…

Cyborg vs. Coenen II Set to Headline July 13th Invicta FC 6 Card

Everywhere you look, chicks are headlining fight cards these days. February had Rounda Rousey defending her world title in a UFC pay per view main event and now Invicta FC has announced their latest main event – a rematch between Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos and Dutch Marloes Coenen Pretty sweet, if you ask us.

Invicta always has a women’s bout as their headliner, of course, because they are an all Women’s MMA organization. As such, they’ve created new opportunities for female fighters to make a living and show how the females are not just the fairer sex, they might also be the fiercest.

Just as cool as what Invicta is doing, the formerly all-male MMA organization, the UFC, now has one women’s division and title, with more hopefully on the way. Last week, Meisha Tate and Cat Zingano tore down the house with their fight of the night on the UFC’s last Fuel TV card. That was on the heels of February’s UFC pay per view main event title bout between Ronda Rousey and Liz Carmouche.

Cris Cyborg vs. Marloes Coenen II Booked for Featherweight Title Fight at Invicta FC 6


(Cyborg/Coenen 1 semi-highlights courtesy of magnaflowtv.) 

Fresh off her first fight in nearly two years — a first round obliteration of Fiona Muxlow at Invicta FC 5 that absolutely none of us saw coming – it has recently been announced that former Strikeforce featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino will now rematch fellow Strikeforce vet Marloes Coenen for Invicta’s inaugural featherweight title. Barring any last minute “injuries,” the fight will headline Invicta FC 6 this summer, although a date and location for the event have yet to be determined.

Coenen and Cyborg first met in January of 2010 at Strikeforce: Miami. In a typical Cyborg performance, the Brazilian dominated Coenen on the feet and on the mat en route to a third round TKO stoppage. In the time since, Coenen has won, then lost the Strikeforce bantamweight title, been released from Zuffa for her association with Golden Glory, cast in a Dutch version of Survivor, and scored a pair of wins over Romy Ryussen and, you guessed it, Fiona Muxlow.

Cyborg, on the other hand…well, let’s just say that her top-notch management has been quietly screwing her over for some time now and leave it at that.

Will Cristiane run through Coenen again, or does anyone give the Golden Glory product a better chance the second time around?
