I expect that Invicta will have a more friendly relationship with Zuffa than Bellator and will be more willing to serve as an unofficial farm system/minor league for WMMA. It's in their own best interest to do so since WMMA on it's own isn't that big of a draw, but seeing future UFC talent can add to the appeal of their organization. Dana already mentioned that he was cool with Cyborg having a Zuffa contract but fighting in Invicta until they sorted out the weight issues and has praised Invicta in the past.

So while the roster on paper seems small for now, I expect that we'll see it double or triple in size over the next 12 months or so as Invicta puts on a few more events and establishes a clearer hierarchy at 135.
