Posted: January 18, 2017 in Uncategorized


Press Release – Invicta Fighting Championships 22 has its headliner.

Bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger (18-5, 1 NC) will once again put her title on the line against Russian challenger Yana Kunitskaya (9-2, 1 NC) on Saturday, March 25 from the historic Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo. The event streams live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.

The match-up is rematch of the Invicta FC 20 main event which took place November 18 and was initially ruled a first-round submission win for Kunitskaya. However, following a ruling by the Missouri Office of Athletics, the bout was overturned to a no-contest and Evinger retained her 135-pound championship.

Evinger will enter the title defense riding a lengthy, 10-fight undefeated streak. Prior to the first meeting with Kunitskaya, Evinger had reeled off six consecutive wins inside the Invicta cage. The 27-year-old Kunitskaya, who made her promotional debut at the November event, has stopped seven of her nine wins by way of strikes.

The current Invicta FC 22 fight card:
Bantamweight Title: Tonya Evinger (18-5, 1 NC) vs Yana Kunitskaya (9-2, 1 NC)

Additional bouts for the event, as well as ticketing information, will be announced at a later date.
