MIZUKI Faces Virna Jandiroba at Invicta FC 28

Invicta FC strawweight champion to be crowned on Saturday, March 24

Kansas City, Mo. – Janaisa Morandin is unable to compete and has been forced to withdraw from the strawweight title fight headlining Invicta FC 28 from the Union Event Center in Salt Lake City on Saturday, March 24.

Morandin will be replaced by MIZUKI (12-4), who moves up from the co-main event to take on undefeated submission specialist Virna “Carcará” Jandiroba (12-0) for the vacant Invicta FC strawweight championship.
