B0vhmGbIQAEP5PtPress Release – Invicta Fighting Championships today announced that Belgian bantamweight Cindy Dandois (5-1) was forced to withdraw from her Invicta FC 9 match-up with Kaitlin Young (7-8-1) due to visa issues.

Stepping in on short notice to face Young is Raquel Pa’aluhi (3-4). The bout, originally contracted for bantamweight, will now be contested at featherweight.

“I’m disappointed that Cindy is not able to fight on this card, but we’ll bring her back [to compete] at our next event,” said Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp. “Kudos to Raquel for taking on a veteran like Kaitlin Young with just a week’s notice. We love that kind of warrior spirit at Invicta and those two are going to put on a show next Saturday night.”

Invicta FC 9: “Honchak vs Hashi” streams live on UFC Fight Pass from The RiverCenter in Davenport, Iowa on Saturday, November 1 and is headlined by Invicta FC Flyweight Champion Barb Honchak (9-2) defending her title against Japanese veteran Takayo Hashi (15-4). In the co-main event, strawweight submission specialist Mizuki Inoue (8-2) returns to Invicta to take on undefeated newcomer Karolina Kowalkiewicz (5-0) of Poland.

    Time for Kate to show that she has what it takes to dominate. The most devastating kicks in WMMA…and that includes Holly Holm!!!

    Yes indeed. I’m a huge Kaitlin Young fan and hope she finally fulfills her tremendous potential. She has all the weapons, but I suspect her difficulties have been mental. Maybe the time she’s spending with Ronda Rousey will give her new found confidence in her magnificent abilities. If Kaitlin can put a few victories together, there’s a place waiting for her in the UFC and a massive rematch against non other than the lady she knocked out years ago — none other than Miesha Tate
