Kanako Murata, Loma Lookboonmee booked for Invicta FC 35
Two Asian fighters will feature on the Invicta FC 35 card. Kanako Murata and Loma Lookboonmee will both be in action on June 7th in Kansas City with the former set to make her international debut.
Murata (9-1) is coming off an impressive submission win at Rizin 15. She will be fighting outside of Japan for the first time in her career when she faces Brazilian Liana Pirosin (7-2) in a strawweight contest.
Loma (2-1) lost her crown as Thailand’s pound for pound queen when she was stopped by Suwanan Boonsorn at Full Metal Dojo 16. The Muay Thai veteran will be looking for her second Invicta FC win when she faces Brazil’s Monique Adriane in an atomweight contest.
The recent Invicta: ‘Phoenix Rising 1’ event didn’t go too well for the Asian fighters. Japan’s Mizuke Inoue was forced to withdraw from the tournament after missing weight and Indian Manjit Kolekar, her replacement, was submitted in the opening round.
