Invicta FC 46 took another hit with a removal of a scheduled bout and a weight miss, but the main event is official and ready to go.
The Fatima “The Archangel” Kline (1-0) and Mexico’s Nadia Vera (3-1) has been removed from the card. Liz Tracy also missed weight in her strawweight match against Danielle Taylor and will be fined 20 per cent from her purse.
Karina Rodriguez will defend her flyweight title in a rematch against short notice replacement Daiana Torquato. The action begins Wednesday Mar. 9 at 8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT and viewers can watch it free on Invicta’s YouTube channel.
Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the card.
PAULINA GRANADOS (4-4-0) VS. MONIQUE ADRIANE (4-2-0)
Andrews: Both fighters haven’t fought since around mid-2019. This one is pretty much a toss-up. I’m going with Adriane by decision.
Andrews Prediction: Monique Adriane by UD
KRISTINA WILLIAMS (4-3-0) VS. FLORE HANI (4-1-0)
Andrews: Williams will enjoy a five-inch height advantage but Hani should know how to get inside and get the takedown. Look for Hani to get the decision.
Andrews Prediction: Flore Hani via UD
DANIELLE TAYLOR (11-6-0) VS. LIZ TRACY (6-4-0)
Andrews: Tracy missed weight. Taylor comes in with the usual height and reach disadvantages, but they are not as much here. The price for that is can she keep the fight standing. If she can land something inside, she can win, but if she can’t it will be a long day on the ground. I am going for Taylor to find a way to connect.
Andrews Prediction: Danielle Taylor via TKO
MILANA DUDIEVA (12-8-0) VS. DENISE GOMES (4-1-0)
Andrews: Dudieva has lost five of her last six fights and needs a win badly. She has the height and reach advantage but I think Gomes knocks her out.
Andrews Prediction: Denise Gomes via TKO
KARINA RODRIGUEZ (9-4-0) VS. DAIANA TORQUATO (10-4-0)
Andrews: Does Torquato have any new tricks up her sleeve to throw Rodriguez off? Unless she does, I think Rodriguez has her number.
Andrews Prediction: Karina Rodriguez via UD
Enjoy the fights.
