Press Release –  The fight card for Invicta Fighting Championships 26 has undergone a change to one of the previously announced match-ups and added three new bouts.

Flyweight Jessica-Rose “Jessy Jess” Clark has been pulled from her match-up with former title challenger Vanessa Porto (18-8). Stepping in to face the Brazilian will be UFC veteran Milana Dudieva (11-6).

Undefeated Brazilian strawweight Virna Jandiroba (11-0) will make her promotional debut against returning veteran Amy Montenegro (8-2). Jandiroba enters the contest having won nine of her 11 career bouts via submission. Montenegro is coming off a “Fight of Year” contender against Celine Haga at Invicta FC 21 earlier this year.

In the atomweight division, former title challenger Amber Brown (6-4) tangles with Texan Tessa Simpson (5-2). Both fighters are eager to work back into title contention in the sport’s deepest 105-pound division.

Finally, flyweight knockout artists Karina Rodríguez (5-2) and Christine Ferea (1-1) will look to add to their respective highlight reels. Mexico’s Rodríguez put away Brazilian Bárbara Acioly at Invicta FC 24, while Ferea engaged in a three-round war with kickboxing champion Tiffany Van Soest at Invicta FC 23.

Invicta FC 26 takes place Friday, December 8, from the historic Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo. The event streams live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass at 8pm ET.

“Thug” Rose Namajunas shocked the mixed martial arts world tonight with a sensational victory at UFC 217: “Bisping vs St. Pierre” in New York City, New York. Namajunas stopped previously unbeaten titleholder Joanna Jędrzejczyk to become the new UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion.

While some had predicted that Namajunas’s best success would come on the ground, it was instead her striking skills and underrated power that propelled her to a quick and dominant win over Jędrzejczyk, who had done her best to antagonise Namajunas with trash talk leading up to the bout.

Overcoming a rib injury, Emily Whitmire posted a quick submission victory during tonight’s eighth episode of The Ultimate Fighter 26: “A New World Champion.” Team Gaethje’s Whitmire concluded the elimination round by finishing Team Alvarez’s Christina Marks with a first-round armbar.

Whitmire dominated the brief bout on the ground en route to the impressive victory, and her win propelled Team Gaethje into a 5-3 lead after the first round of the gruelling competition. The quarterfinal round of TUF 26 begins during next week’s episode, and all four matchups were revealed tonight.
