Marion-Reneau-vs_-Milana-Dudieva

PRESS RELEASE –  The fight card for Invicta Fighting Championships 24 has changed yet again.

Previously slated to serve as the night’s co-main event, the flyweight bout between UFC veteran Milana Dudieva (11-5) and newly signed Mara Romero Borella (10-4, 1 NC) now takes the top billing. Both fighters will be making their Invicta debuts. Russia’s Dudieva joins the organization after battles in the UFC against top bantamweights Marion Reneau and Julianna Pena, while Italy’s Borella enters the bout winning four of her last five fights.

The change comes after Invicta FC bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger was released from her contract to challenge former Invicta FC featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino at UFC 214 on July 29.

Evinger’s opponent, promotional newcomer Helena Kolesnyk (5-0, 1 NC), is expected to remain on the card with a replacement opponent to be determined.

The bantamweight match-up between Raquel Pa’aluhi (6-5) and recent title challenger Yana Kunitskaya (9-3, 1 NC) of Russia is now the co-main event. The Hawaii native Pa’aluhi has won four of her last five fights, most recently submitting Pannie Kianzad in the first round at Invicta FC 21 in January. Kunitskaya looks to rebound after back-to-back fights against the aforementioned Evinger.

Invicta FC 24 takes place Saturday, July 15, from the historic Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo, and streams live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass at 8pm ET.

The current Invicta FC 24 fight card:

Flyweight: Milana Dudieva (11-5) vs Mara Romero Borella (10-4, 1 NC)
Bantamweight: Raquel Pa’aluhi (6-5) vs Yana Kunitskaya (9-3, 1 NC)
Atomweight: Jinh Yu Frey (5-2) vs Ashley Cummins (5-3)
Featherweight: Helena Kolesnyk (5-0, 1 NC) vs TBD
Flyweight: Karina Rodríguez (4-2) vs Bárbara Acioly (4-0)
Strawweight: Sunna Rannveig Davíðsdóttir (2-0) vs Kelly D’Angelo (2-0)
Strawweight: Mallory Martin (1-1) vs Tiffany Masters (2-0)
Featherweight: Felicia Spencer (2-0) vs Amy Coleman (2-1)

Press Release –  Invicta Fighting Championships 24 has a new main event.

Invicta FC bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger (19-5, 1 NC) will move up in weight to take on promotional newcomer Helena Kolesnyk (5-0, 1 NC) in a three-round, non-title featherweight match-up.

Joining the new headliner will be seven additional bouts.

In the night’s co-main event, UFC veteran Milana Dudieva (11-5) meets newly signed Mara Romero Borella (10-4, 1 NC) at flyweight. Both fighters will be making their Invicta debuts. Russia’s Dudieva joins the organization after battles in the UFC against top bantamweights Marion Reneau and Julianna Pena, while Italy’s Borella enters the bout winning four of her last five fights.

Rising bantamweight contender Raquel Pa’aluhi (6-5) returns to the Invicta cage against recent title challenger Yana Kunitskaya (9-3, 1 NC) of Russia. The Hawaii native Pa’aluhi has won four of her last five fights, most recently submitting Pannie Kianzad in the first round at Invicta FC 21 in January. Kunitskaya looks to rebound after back-to-back fights against Invicta FC bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger.

Missouri product Ashley Cummins (5-3) continues her run at atomweight as she meets former title challenger Jinh Yu Frey (5-2). Cummins submitted Amber Brown in her previous outing, while Frey hopes to bounce back from defeat by doctor’s stoppage at Invicta FC 19 in September.

Two new additions to the roster collide when Karina Rodríguez (4-2) and Bárbara Acioly (4-0) throw down in the flyweight division. Rodríguez has battled tough competition in Mexico, including a bout with former Invicta FC strawweight contender Alexa Grasso. After early success in her native Brazil, Acioly has earned back-to-back wins on American soil.

Iceland’s Sunna Rannveig Davíðsdóttir (2-0) takes on Kelly D’Angelo (2-0) and Mallory Martin (1-1) welcomes Tiffany Masters (2-0) to the promotion, both at strawweight. Finally, Amy Coleman (2-1) of Tennessee meets Felicia Spencer (2-0) of Florida in a featherweight match-up.

Invicta FC 24 takes place from the historic Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo., and streams live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass at 8pm ET.

The updated Invicta FC 24 fight card can be found below:

Featherweight: Tonya Evinger (19-5, 1 NC) vs Helena Kolesnyk (5-0, 1 NC)

MMA: UFC Fight Night-Correia vs Holm

Former UFC Women’s Bantamweight Champion Holly “The Preacher’s Daughter” Holm halted a three-fight losing skid with a devastating knockout victory tonight at UFC Fight Night 111 in Kallang, Singapore. Holm finished an overconfident Bethe “Pitbull” Correia with a head kick in the main event.

Tonight’s headliner started off slowly, and neither woman committed to any offence in the opening ten minutes. Correia taunted early in round three, but that proved to be her downfall. Earlier on the card, Lucie “Ultimo” Pudilova narrowly edged out Ji Yeon “Firefist” Kim in the bantamweight opener.
