Invicta Fighting Championships has announced the signing of three new competitors to its roster.

Milana Dudieva (11-5) of Russia will join the organization’s flyweight division.

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.

Joining the 135-pound bantamweight division is Kelly Faszholz (3-2). 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.

Kelly D’Angelo (2-0) of Missouri has joined the 115-pound strawweight division. 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.

No fight have been announced for the newly signed Invicta FC fighters.

Invicta’s next event, Invicta 22, will feature a rematch between bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger and Yana Kunitskaya in the main event March 25 in Kansas City.  The first fight ended in controversy resulting in Evinger losing her title.  Several weeks later however the state’s athletic commission overturned the ruling and returned the title to Evinger.
