Invicta FC 48: Taneisha Tennant to defend bantamweight crown by welcoming Olga Rubin

Invicta FC 48 in July will feature a Taneisha Tennant bantamweight title defence.

Tennant (4-1-0) will match up with former Bellator title contender Olga Rubin (7-2-0) in the main event.

Tennant won the title at Invicta FC 44 last August, defeating Lisa Verzosa. Since then, Tennant appeared in the Halle Berry movie Bruised in late 2021 and talked to MMA Crossfire about it. This will be her first title defence.

Meanwhile, Rubin (7-2-0), 32, went 3-2-0 in Bellator, losing to good competition in Sinead Kavanagh and Julia Budd. She has a win in her last fight at Oktagon MMA in November.

Invicta FC 48 is scheduled for July 20 in Denver. Acton begins at 9 p.m. ET/7 p.m MT. Current bouts include:
