Invicta FC 40 weigh-in results: Weight-cutting issue forces one fight cancellation

    For the first time in nearly four months, Invicta FC is set to return with its first event since the coronavirus pandemic caused a shutdown, Invicta FC 40, with weigh-ins taking place Wednesday.

    In the main event, recent strawweight title challenger Emily Ducote takes on Juliana Lima. And in the co-headliner, Alesha Zappitella meets Lindsey VanZandt in an atomweight fight.

    Invicta FC 40, which takes place Thursday in Kansas City, Kan., and streams on UFC Fight Pass, originally was scheduled to include six fights but will proceed with five after DeAnna Bennett was unable to make it to the scale because of a medical issue during her weight cut. The promotion announced that Bennett’s opponent, Victoria Leonardo, was paid her show money after weighing in at 125.9 pounds for their flyweight bout.

    Invicta FC also stated that athletes and their corners were tested for COVID-19, and all results were negative.

    The complete Invicta FC 40 weigh-in results include:

    • Strawweight: Emily Ducote (115.2) vs. Juliana Lima (115.5)
    • Lindsey VanZandt (105.2) vs. Alesha Zappitella (105.7)
    • Chelsea Chandler (145) vs. Liv Parker (145.7)
    • Trisha Cicero (126) vs. Laura Gallardo (125.1)
    • Genia Goodin (115.9) vs. Shelby Koren (115.9)
