A stacked Invicta FC card looms, as the all-female promotion takes its cage to the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Mo. Pound-for-pound-ranked Barb Honchak and Carla Esparza will each look to defend their Invicta titles for the first time. Additionally, unranked Invicta bantamweights Lauren Murphy and Miriam Nakamoto will compete for the inaugural 135-pound title. If there is a better lead-in to UFC bantamweight Ronda Rousey's anticipated defense against Miesha Tate at UFC 168 later that month, we can't think of it.
