Not So Sweet News for Budd is Invicta Music to Tweet’s Ears
British Columbia’s Julia Budd is out with a neck injury, so Invicta Fighting Championship has named Saskatchewan’s Charmaine Tweet as her substitute on the Invicta 6 card. Tweet will face Ediane Gomes (10-2) on the July 13th card.
Charmaine Tweet (4-3) told Top MMA News in her recent interview with the site (watch it HERE) that she could be an injury replacement on the card if any Featherweight became injured and now it has happened. Tweet recently submitted former Invicta fighter Amanda Bell at Battle for the Border 2 and said she was most likely Invicta bound next.
Tweet started her MMA career slowly with losses to Ronda Rousey and Anna Barone. However, Charmaine regained her confidence and rebounded and is currently riding a three fight win streak.
Tweet’s opponent Gomes is also on a win streak having her arm raised in her last four fights including two with Invicta. A win over Tweet by Gomes could put her in line for a Featherweight title shot.
Invicta Fighting Championships 6 takes place on July 13th at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Missouri. The event is headlined by an Invicta FC Featherweight Championship fight between Marloes Coenen and Cristiane Cyborg which is a rematch of their Strikeforce title fight.
