Rising star Alexa Grasso likely to return at Invicta FC 16 in March

Invicta FC 15 hasn't happened yet, but the promotion's next event is already set.

Invicta 16 will take place on March 11 in Las Vegas, Invicta president Shannon Knapp announced Thursday on the inaugural Invicta Radio podcast.

Knapp said that a yet to be determined title fight will headline the card and there will also be a tournament for the 125-pound interim belt. Barb Honchak, Invicta's flyweight champion, is taking some time off.

Also at the event, Knapp said the return of Alexa Grasso is likely. Grasso (7-0), one of Invicta's top stars, has not fought since a Fight of the Year candidate win over Mizuki Inoue at Invicta 11 in February. Knapp said Stephanie Eggink will be making her return from maternity leave at Invicta 16, as well.

Invicta's next card on Jan. 16 in Costa Mesa, Calif., will be headlined by a featherweight title fight between champion Cris Cyborg and Daria Ibragimova.
