It’s finally going to happen. The Invicta FC debut of Laura ‘Hot Head’ Howarth is set to take place on May 7 in California. Standing opposite Howarth in the cage will be South Carolina’s 25-year-old, Alexa Conners (8-1).

Laura Howarth (2-1), the only UK fighter signed with the all-female promotion, hasn’t fought since her loss to Sweden’s Lina Lansberg at Cage Warriors 71.

Laura has been waiting to announce herself on the Invicta stage since singing her three-fight contract with the company.

Alexa Conners made her pro debut in 2011 and has built an impressive record since, she is the current USFFC champion. A tough debut will be waiting for both of them at Invicta 17.

Oh, and you can watch this on UFC Fight Pass! Invicta 17, Headlined by Tonya Evinger, who’ll be defending her belt against Colleen Schneider.

Looking forward to seeing the Union Jack Flag paraded in an Invicta cage.
