Press Release – The fight card for Invicta Fighting Championships 21 has undergone a last-minute change.
Debuting flyweight Brieta Carpenter (0-0) suffered a concussion during training for her match-up with boxing world champion Heather Hardy (0-0) and has been forced off the fight card. Due to the timing of the change, a replacement opponent could not be found before the event. Hardy will be rescheduled for a future event.
Despite losing the flyweight bout, the fight card has added another bout. UFC veteran Elizabeth Phillips (5-4) will make her promotional debut against fellow newcomer Leah “Nidas” Letson (3-1) in a featherweight match-up.
