The lineup is nearly compete for the all-female Invicta Fighting Championships' next card.

Invicta FC 4 takes place Jan. 5 at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan. The card is expected to stream online.

Headlining the 12-bout lineup is undefeated Claudia Gadelha (9-0) vs. Carla Esparza (8-2) for the organization's first-ever 115-pound strawweight championship.

Gadelha takes a spot initially expected to feature Ayaka Hamasaki (8-0), who instead will defend her Jewels title in December. Gadelha, a 23-year-old Brazilian submission specialist, makes her U.S. debut against Esparza, a Bellator vet who earned the title shot after recent Invicta victories over Sarah Schneider and Lynn Alvarez, both via TKO.

In the co-headliner, world-ranked bantamweights and Strikeforce veterans Alexis Davis (12-5) and Shayna Baszler (15-7) square off. Combined, 20 of their 27 wins have come via submission.

Other main-card fights include bantamweights Amanda Nunes (7-2) vs. Sarah D'Alelio (6-3), featherweights Hiroko Yamanaka (12-2) vs. Ediane Gomes (8-2), and strawweights Joanne Calderwood (4-0) vs. Bec Hyatt (4-1). Additionally, bantamweight Leslie Smith (4-2-1) will fight an opponent to be determined.

The night's prelims include featherweights Veronica Rothenhausler (0-0) vs. Katalina Malungahu (2-1), atomweights Stephanie Frausto (4-4) vs. Cassie Rodish (3-3), featherweights Tamikka Brents (1-0) vs. Amanda Bell (0-0), atomweights Jodie Esquibel (2-0) vs. Liz McCarthy (1-0), strawweights Emily Kagan (2-0) vs. Rose Namajunas (0-0), and strawweights Paige VanZant (2-0) vs. Tecia Torres (1-0).

Something tells me that there will either be an influx of fighters coming here or bantemweights will be consistantly leaving this promotion for the UFC. Either way we maybe seeing Cyborg coming over after her suspension is lifted.

Claudia Gadelha is hurt, Bec Hyatt has been bumped up to face Carla Esparza for the belt. Damn fine choice too.

Aside from the minor streaming issues during the undercard, it was a great PPV!

Weeks of differing sleep patterns meant I missed it. So gutted as it sounded awesome from what I read on Twitter. Hopefully the vids will be uploaded somewhere pretty soon. Beccy Hyatt put up one hell of a fight for an untested last-minute replacement.

Yeah, I was worried for cookie monster in the 5th, Bec was hitting some decent shots.

I'm pretty sure you can actually watch it for free on Ustream... they made the ppv free due to minor streaming issues.

Pat Barry left this on his twitter...
