DeAnna Bennett vs. Karina Rodríguez elevated to Invicta FC 28 co-main event
Kansas City, Mo. – Late last week, Invicta Fighting Championships announced that MIZUKI would be replacing Janaisa Morandin in the Invicta FC 28 main event, vying with Virna Jandiroba for the vacant Invicta FC strawweight championship.
The move left Milana Dudieva (11-7) without an opponent for Invicta FC 28, streaming live and exclusively on UFC FIGHT PASS from the Union Event Center in Salt Lake City on Saturday, March 24.
Invicta FC today announced a flyweight bout between Dudieva and fellow UFC veteran Christina Marks (8-9), who makes her debut for the promotion. California’s Marks appeared on season 26 of The Ultimate Fighter and has shared the cage with Invicta veterans Sarah D’Alelio, Sara McMann, Colleen Schneider and Michelle Ould.
The flyweight scrap between local favorite DeAnna “Vitamin D” Bennett (8-3-1) and Mexico’s Karina Rodríguez (6-2) has been elevated to the co-main event.
