Invicta FC Returns Thursday Night With Emily Ducote Vs. Juliana Lima

Invicta FC returns Thursday night live on UFC Fight Pass from Kansas City. Here is a look at the fight card for the event.

Strawweights Emily Ducote and Juliana Lima will headline the return of Invicta FC.

Invicta FC 40 takes place Thursday night live from Kansas City. The event will stream on UFC Fight Pass beginning at 8 p.m. ET.

Along with Ducote taking on Lima, Alesha Zappitella faces Lindsey VanZandt, DeAnna Bennett meets Victoria Leonardo and Chelsea Chandler battles Liv Parker.

Oklahoma’s Ducote scored a violent, first-round knockout of Janaisa Morandin in her promotional debut before challenging Kanako Murata for the 115-pound title. Ducote fell via split decision in a closely contested bout and will look to get back in the win column.

Lima rejoined the Invicta roster in 2019 following a seven-fight stint with the UFC. The veteran was last in action during the inaugural Phoenix Series tournament, where she defeated fellow UFC veteran Danielle Taylor, but fell to eventual tournament champion Brianna Van Buren in the semifinals.
