Press Release – Invicta Fighting Championships today announced the signing of three athletes to its roster.
Joining the flyweight division will be Russia’s Milana Dudieva (11-5). The 27-year-old UFC veteran has stopped nine of her 11 career victories — all inside the first round — including six by way of submission. She has shared the cage with the likes of fellow Invicta fighters Pannie Kianzad and Elizabeth Phillips during her 16-fight career.
Bolstering the 135-pound division is Kelly Faszholz (3-2). Like Dudieva, Faszholz is a UFC veteran with a propensity for finishes on the mat. All three of her career wins have come via submission. The 31-year-old battled former Invicta titleholder Lauren Murphy in a “Fight of the Night” performance last year.
The strawweight division has a fresh face in Missouri’s Kelly D’Angelo (2-0). In addition to her unblemished professional record, D’Angelo also went 5-0 as an amateur. She topped fellow Invicta fighter Samantha Diaz in her most recent outing.
Bouts for the new roster additions have not been finalized at this time.
