Miesha Tate, Michael Schiavello and 'King Mo' Lawal to commentate Invicta FC 7

According to a Dec. 2 post from MMA Weekly, UFC bantamweight contender Miesha Tate, world-renowned play-by-play announcer Michael Schiavello and Bellator star 'King Mo' Lawal will be commentating Invicta FC 7 on Dec. 7 in Kansas City, Missouri.

As the No. 1 contender in the UFC's female bantamweight division, Tate is one of the biggest stars in women's MMA.

Her presence at the event will certainly bring some extra exposure to the card, which has been overlooked a bit in recent months due to the five-month gap since the last Invicta FC event.

"So excited! "@InvictaFights: There you are, our announcing team for Invicta FC 7: @MieshaTate @SchiavelloVOICE @KingMoFH" Tate tweeted on Dec. 2.

Tate, 27, is slated to fight UFC champ Ronda Rousey on Dec. 28 in Las Vegas, so Invicta FC 7 will be one of the last chances fight fans will have to meet her before her big fight at UFC 168.

Invicta FC 7 airs live on pay-per-view from Ameristar Casino Hotel on Dec. 7.

Invicta Fighting Championships 7 is being distributed in North America by Integrated Sports Media for live viewing at 9 p.m. on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via IN Demand, DISH, Avail-TVN in the United States, as well as Bell TV, Shaw PPV, SaskTel, TELUS, and MTS in Canada, for $14.95.

In addition, viewers worldwide may purchase the show at www.invictafc.com and the Invicta Fighting Championship’s Facebook page.

Invicta FC is offering a free one-hour live viewing in North America, starting at 8 p.m., available via all aforementioned pay-per-view carriers and The Fight Network in Canada.

Viewers worldwide may also watch the free bouts, featuring Sarah D' Alelio (7-4) vs. Tonya Evinger (11-6) at bantamweight and Munah Holland (5-2) vs. Nina Arsanoff (5-4) at flyweight, via www.invictafc.com and Invicta Fighting Championship’s Facebook.

In the Invicta FC 7 main event, Invicta FC flyweight (125 pounds) champion Barb Honchak (8-2) will defend her title against three-time “Fight of the Night” winner Leslie “The Peacemaker” Smith (6-3-1).

In the Invicta FC 7 co-main, Invicta FC strawweight (115 pounds) champion Carla “Cookie Monster” Esparza (9-2) will defend her belt against undefeated Brazilian star Claudia Gadelha (11-0).

In a third world title fight on the Invicta FC 7 card, the inaugural Invicta FC bantamweight (135 pounds) world championship title will be on the line, featuring hard-hitting knockout artist Lauren Murphy (7-0) against unbeaten Muay Thai ace Miriam Nakamoto (2-0, 1 NC).
