    With sixth show, Invicta FC moves to PPV - Mixed Martial Arts News

    Their next show, Invicta FC 6 will feature a title fight between Cris 'Cyborg' and Marloes Connen and today was announced would be broadcast live on PPV:

    Two of the premier women mixed-martial-arts fighters in the world, Cris Cyborg (11-1) and Marloes Coenen (21-5), headline the July 13th Invicta Fighting Championships 6 pay-per-view event, airing live from Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri.

    Brazilian KO artist Cyborg, arguably the top pound-for-pound fighters in women's MMA, and equally dangerous Dutch submission specialist Coenen, will battle in a three, five-minute round rematch for the inaugural Invicta FC World Featherweight (145-pounds) title. "Cyborg" won their first meeting on January 30, 2010, in an action-packed fight that ended on a technical knockout (punches) in the final round.

    "We are excited about bringing the Invicta FC brand of women's world championship Mixed Martial Arts to television for the first time with this tremendous rematch between two of the world's top women fighters," said Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp. "This is yet another step forward for women's MMA and we are extremely proud to be leading the charge."

    "Invicta FC 6," presented by Invicta Fighting Championships, is being distributed in North America by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 9:00 p.m. ET - 6:00 p.m. PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DISH, Avail-TVN in the United States, as well as Bell TV in Canada, for a suggested retail price of only $14.95.

    great main event but they are not big enough to just be supported on PPV buys. The casuals wont buy and I wont ethier.

    The UFC takes somemore of their fighter and this org goes down like a chick on prom night...

    Well you know they have UFC's backing which I'm sure is assuring.

    Why is the fight only 3 rounds? Or have the previous championship matches only been 3 rounds as well?

    also, im fairly certain its still available on ustream for those without access to purchasing PPV. but with it going from 9.95 for the last card, to 14.95 for this one, I'm not sure it'll still draw the numbers it had been

    I didn't pay for the prior 5 and will be paying for this one because I can watch it on the tele instead of the computer. That was my rationality, anyways.

    Dave Meltzer brought up some really valid issues with regard to the advertising of the PPV and overall poor timing of it, coming in the middle of July and following Anderson's PPV. Basically, I've been hearing its going to be financially difficult to turn a profit, even if they're getting assistance from ZUFFA(which I believe is a relationship ZUFFA should nurture)....

    It's curious since they don't have TV and I'm not too sure how many non-hardcore MMA fans will be aware of it, not to mention the absence of legitimate name draws, regardless of talent level, for casual fans. I suppose they could advertise during Bellator or UFC, or even WWE, but those will be some costly ads.

    I'll be interested to see how this goes, but I fear this might not end well for them numbers-wise.
