The composed victory over Damm in August, a fight which she took on less than two weeks notice, was a crucial one for Rose-Clark, with the Aussie coming off consecutive defeats to Pam Sorenson and Sarah Kaufman. The 29 year-old will now look to keep the ball rolling against the former title challenger.
Porto earned her second shot at the flyweight title with a unanimous decision over Roxanne Modafferi back in 2015. She challenged Jennifer Maia for the strap, however fell short losing on points to the fellow Brazilian. The 33 year-old went on to drop a unanimous decision in May to unbeaten Polish fighter Agnieszka Niedźwiedź, who now gets her shot at Invicta gold in the main event.
