Press Release – The fight card for Invicta Fighting Championships 15 has lost one of its bouts.
The promotion has announced that the flyweight contest between Christine Stanley (4-1) and Katy Collins (3-1) has been scratched from the event after Collins suffered an ankle injury in training. Collins, who fights out of Branson Fight Club in Missouri, was herself a late replacement for Shannon Sinn (2-2), who also succumbed to a pre-fight injury.
The event will now proceed with eight contests.
Invicta FC 15 will be headlined by featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino (14-1, 1 NC), who will put her belt on the line against Russian newcomer Daria Ibragimova (9-1). In the co-main event, the strawweight title will be up for grabs between champion Livia Renata Souza (8-0) and fellow unbeaten DeAnna Bennett (8-0).
The event will take place from The Hangar at the OC Fair & Event Center in Costa Mesa on Saturday, January 16. The event will stream live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass beginning at 9pm ET.
