Invicta FC 5 takes place April 05, 2013 at the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, MO. A pair of title bouts highlight the event, which also features the debut of former Strikeforce champion Cristiane "Cyborg" Santos.
Estes (1-1) becomes the third different opponent scheduled for Budd (4-2). The 29-year-old was initially slated to fight Ediane Gomes and then Fiona Muxlow, both of whom were eventually pulled from the bout to fight Santos.
The 37-year-old Estes is winless thus far in her Invicta FC campaign, having fallen to strikes at the hands of Randi Miller at the promotion's debut event.
