It was announced earlier this week that Invicta bantamweight, Sara McMann was signed by Strikeforce. Now, she has a fight in place with the promotion and will face Liz Carmouche at Strikeforce: Cormier vs Mir at the Chesapeake Bay Arena in Oklahoma City on November 3rd.
McMann (6-0, MMA) is coming off of a unanimous decision win over Shayna Baszler that put her in contention for a title shot in the bantamweight class with Invicta. Now that she’s signed to Strikeforce, it’ll be interesting to see what unveils with Invicta and the bantamweight picture.
Liz Carmouche has also been on a tear in her last 2 fights with Invicta finishing both of her opponents. She last faced Kaitlin Young at Invicta 2 and won by second round TKO. Carmouche has previously fought in Strikeforce and holds a 2-2 record with the promotion. She once competed for the Strikeforce Women’s Bantamweight Championship and lost by triangle choke to Marloes Coenen.
