Completed Invicta FC 30 Lineup Includes Debut of ‘TUF 20’ Veteran Heather Clark

“The Ultimate Fighter 20” cast member Heather Clark will make her promotional debut against Kinberly Novaes at Invicta FC 30 on July 21.

The all-female organization on Wednesday announced the complete eight-bout lineup for the event, which takes place at Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo., and streams in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. CT. Invicta FC 30 is headlined by an atomweight championship clash between Jinh Yu Frey and Minna Grusander.

The other six contests announced for the card are as follows: Felicia Spencer vs. Helena Kolesnyk at featherweight; Alexa Conners vs. Kerri Kenneson at bantamweight; Miranda Maverick vs. Brogan Walker-Sanchez at flyweight; Shino VanHoose vs. Alesha Zappitella at atomweight; Alyse Anderson vs. Stephanie Alba at atomweight and Erin Blanchfield vs. Brittney Cloudy at flyweight.

Clark was a cast member on “TUF 20,” which crowned Carla Esparza as the UFC’s inaugural strawweight champion. After besting Bec Rawlings via unanimous decision at the “TUF 20” finale, Clark suffered back-to-back losses against Karolina Kowalkiewicz and Alexa Grasso in the Octagon. She has not competed since losing to Grasso at UFC Fight Night 98 in November 2016. The 37-year-old Clark owns a 7-6 career mark.

Novaes, 27, made her Invicta debut in December, losing a three-round verdict to Janaisa Morandin. The Brazilian is 9-4 since making her pro debut and owns a notable triumph over UFC contender Jessica Andrade on the regional circuit in May 2012.
