Kansas City, Mo. — The Invicta atomweight division is welcoming back Cassie Rodish.
The 34-year-old Iowa native has re-signed with the promotion nearly two years after her last appearance in the Invicta cage. Rodish has competed for the organization on three occasions, falling short against Simona Soukupova, but submitting Meghan Wright at the promotion’s inaugural event in 2012 and defeating Stephanie Frausto by TKO at Invicta FC 4.
Rodish has five career wins, with all five coming before the final bell. She’s won five of her last six fights and is coming off a first-round submission win over Raquel Magdaleno in October.
“I’m very excited to return to the Invicta cage,” said Rodish. “It’s such an awesome platform for women to showcase their skills. It’s hard not to be inspired when you have a room full of high level fighters ready to put it all on the line.
“It’s been almost two years since my last Invicta fight, but I’m constantly evolving in the gym and sharpening my tools. I never want to be the same fighter in the cage twice. If you thought you had my number figured out, just wait! I’m excited for this opportunity and I’m not going to let it slip through my finger tips.”
Rodish’s return to the Invicta cage will take place in early 2015.
