'India' Gomes injured, out of Cris Cyborg fight, Fiona Muxlow in
Cyborg will now fight rising star Fiona Muxlow of Townsville, Queensland Australia in a featured featherweight (145 pounds) bout at the Invicta Fighting Championships women’s world championship doubleheader event at Ameristar Casino Hotel Kansas City.
Muxlow’s original Invicta FC 5 featherweight opponent, hard-punching Julia “The Jewel” Budd of Port Moody, BC Canada, will be matched with a new opponent to be announced soon.
Fighting out of Team Takedown Australia, the 35-year-old, 5-foot-5 Muxlow, a highly-skilled grappler, recently reeled off three consecutive victories before her win streak was snapped at the hands of top-ranked superstar Marloes Coenen at Saitama Super Arena in Japan on Dec. 31, 2012.
Muxlow jumpstarted her professional career by defeating three consecutive opponents – all by way of submission – in one night of action in a featherweight tournament in New Zealand on June 2, 2007.
