Press Release – Invicta Fighting Championships 20 will feature two championship match-ups on Friday, November 18.

The promotion once again returns to the historic Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo. The event will stream live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass.

In the night’s headliner, reigning bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger (18-5) will look to defend her belt against Russian newcomer Yana Kunitskaya (9-2). Evinger rides a lengthy, nine-fight winning streak into the title affair, including six straight in the Invicta cage. She was most recently in action at Invicta FC 17 in May, retaining her title with a decision win over Colleen Schneider. The 26-year-old Kunitskaya returned to competition in 2016 after nearly four years away from the sport. In her last outing, she stopped Yanan Wu by second-round TKO. Seven of Kunitskaya’s nine wins have come via strikes, including a 34-second stoppage of Cindy Dandois.

The co-main event will also feature gold on the line as strawweight champion Angela Hill (5-2) meets surging Brazilian Kaline Medeiros (8-4). The 31-year-old Hill earned the title in her last bout, defeating Livia Renata Souza by decision at Invicta FC 17. The win marked the UFC veteran’s third straight under the Invicta FC banner. Much like the champion, Medeiros has found nothing but success with the promotion, stopping Aline Serio in her promotional debut and handing Manjit Kolekar her first loss at Invicta FC 19 in September. The 37-year-old carries a five-fight winning streak into her title challenge.

Joining the two title match-ups will be six additional bouts. Former atomweight champion Herica Tiburcio (9-4) will take on Simona Soukupova (5-4-1), recent atomweight title challenger Amber Brown (6-2) moves up to strawweight to welcome TUF veteran Ashley Yoder (4-1) to the Invicta cage, Australia’s Jessica-Rose “Jessy Jess” Clark (6-2) returns to face newcomer Pam Sorenson (4-1) in a bantamweight affair, veteran strawweight Lynn Alvarez (6-4) clashes with J.J. Aldrich (3-1), Switzerland’s Stephanie Egger (2-0) will make her Invicta debut against against a soon-to-be-announced bantamweight opponent, and strawweights Miranda Maverick (0-0) and Samantha Diaz (0-0) will make their professional debuts.

The current fight card for Invicta FC 20 can be found below:

Bantamweight Title: Tonya Evinger (18-5) vs Yana Kunitskaya (9-2)
Strawweight Title: Angela Hill (5-2) vs Kaline Medeiros (8-4)

Invicta FC Featherweight Champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino made it two in a row inside the UFC Octagon with another dominant stoppage victory tonight at UFC Fight Night 95 in Brasilia, Brazil. Justino finished Sweden’s Lina “Elbow Princess” Länsberg in the 140-pound catchweight main event.

Justino was in control of tonight’s bout from start to finish, but Länsberg employed a smart strategy and she limited Justino’s damage by keeping the fight in close quarters. Justino threw a bloodied Länsberg to the mat in round two and flurried with ground and pound until the bout was finally stopped.
