Former Strikeforce champion Marloes Coenen (19-5) and fellow 145-pounder Romy Ruyssen (5-1) will meet in the headliner of the debut Invicta Fighting Championships event.

The all-female card takes place April 28 at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan.

Former UFC, Strikeforce and IFL talent-relations executive Shannon Knapp serves as the upstart organization's vice president and co-founder.

Coenen fights for the first time since losing her Strikeforce 135-pound title to Miesha Tate in July, when she surprisingly was cut from the promotion. The Dutch submission specialist now meets French fighter Romy Ruyssen (5-1), who looks for her fifth straight win (and sixth submission victory in six wins).

Currently, no broadcast or streaming plans have been announced, but tickets go on sale Friday and start at just $35.

i still think its stupid that zuffa got rid of coenen. they should have figured all that golden glory BS and kept coenen. i dont know the entire story but they should have done something different. she was good for the barely alive female MMA

This is one badass girl card and I would attend this card, Kansas aint too far away and 35 bucks for front row seats to the ladies show <3 But on a side note, I cant believe zuffa seriously didnt re-sign Marloes to Strikeforce!! All the other guys got re-signed after the whole Golden Glory fallout and she gets blackballed in the deal.. that's retarded, but she should win every fight outside Strikeforce and get back in.

Coenen will beat Rousey if she wins the title. Zuffa needs to bring her back.
