By Jamie Penick, MMATorch Editor-in-Chief

Invicta FC has run a number of events from Kansas City, Mo., and they’re heading back next month to a new venue. The organization announced on Monday night that they’re heading for the first time to historic landmark the Scottish Rite Temple on July 29 for Invicta FC 18.

The card will be headlined by a strawweight bout between Alexa Grasso and Jodie Esquibel, and a full slate of bouts has also been announced for the event, the full lineup of which can be seen below:

Strawweight: Alexa Grasso vs. Jodie Esquibel
Irene Aldana vs. Taila Santos
Flyweight: Agnieszka Niedzwiedz vs Claudia Rey
Bantamweight: Cindy Dandois vs. Jessamyn Duke
Featherweight: Megan Anderson vs. Peggy Morgan
Strawweight: Manjit Kolekar vs. Lynn Alvarez
Bantamweight: Sijara Eubanks vs. Amberlynn Orr

The 22-year-old Grasso is undefeated in her MMA career, but injuries have set her back from two previously scheduled fights in significant spots. She returns to the cage for the first time since February of 2015, while the 5-1 Esquibel fights for the first time since November of 2014.

Invicta FC 18, as with the last several Invicta FC events, will air live on UFC Fight Pass.
