Invicta FC 27 takes place tonight, and you can follow the live results with MMAjunkie.
The event kicks off at 8 p.m. ET from Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo., and streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
The 32-year-old Kaufman, a Canadaian fan favorite, returns to Invicta for the first time since 2013, when she defeated Leslie Smith in a “Fight of the Night” performance. Kianzad is fighting for the fourth time under the Invicta FC banner and looking to snap a two-fight losing streak after starting her career 8-0.
Top featherweight prospect Felicia Spencer was dominant in her win over Akeela Al-Hameed, earning 30-27 scores from all three judges. But for a moment Spencer (4-0) was in trouble as she was trapped inside a standing guillotine by Al-Hameed (0-2), though her defense against the move was … interesting (via Twitter).
