For the first time since Invicta FC 5 in 2013, the promotion will run a show with all athletes making weight. Nearly every show in company history has been marred by athletes missing their mark, but shedding pounds wasn't a problem at Invicta FC 30.
The ceremonial weigh-in for the event, which went down July 20 at the Adam's Mark Hotel and Conference Center in Kansas City, Mo., featured 16 competitors -- all making weight for their respective fights. In the event headliner, Jihn Yu Frey (104.8) and Minna Grusander (104.7) both tipped the scales well under the atomweight championship limit of 105 pounds.
Co-headlining the bill is Felicia Spencer vs. Helena Kolesnyk, who were on the mark at 145.8 and 144.2 pounds, respectively. Elsewhere on the card, strawweights collide as "Hurricane" Heather Clark makes her promotional debut against Kinberly Novaes.
Both women weighed in at 116 pounds. In flyweight action, Brogan Walker-Sanchez (125.8) and Miranda Maverick (125.1) go toe to toe in a battle of the undefeated. A pair of atomweight fights set the tone for the preliminary card, as Jillian DeCoursey (105.9) meets Alesha Zappitella (105.5) and Alyse Anderson (105.4) takes on Stephanie Alba (105.9).
MMA News posted the full weigh-in results for the event. Historically, winning fighters at Invicta Fighting Championships events get on the UFC's radar, sometimes even earning lucrative contracts to compete inside the world-famous Octagon. Invicta FC 30, which airs live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass, is set for July 21 at Kansas City's Scottish Rite Temple.
