Invicta had a great night with their second iteration of the Phoenix Rising series, and now has a nifty event that’s going under the radar.
The original main event for this card was to be a scrap between atomweight champion Jinh Yu Frey and Ashley Cummins, but that got scratched due to an injury to Frey. The new headliner shouldn’t disappoint, though. Former UFC fighter Pearl Gonzalez (9-4) has hit a new stride and arguably arrived at her peak, and she’ll have a hefty challenge against BJJ ace Brogan Walker-Sanchez (6-0). Walker-Sanchez has made the most of her time in Invicta, with wins against Cheri Muraski and recent Phoenix Rising tournament winner Miranda Maverick.
