Christina Marks Meets Milana Dudieva at Invicta FC 28 on March 24
Kansas City, Mo. — The lineup for Invicta Fighting Championships 28 is once again complete.
Last week it was revealed that Brazilian Janaisa Morandin had been forced out of her strawweight title tilt against countrywoman Virna Jandiroba (12-0) and Japan’s MIZUKI (12-4) would step into the title affair.
MIZUKI’s original opponent, Milana Dudieva (11-7), will now face fellow UFC veteran Christina Marks (8-9) in a flyweight contest. California’s Marks is a veteran of The Ultimate Fighter 26 and enters the contest having won three of her last four. She has shared the cage with Invicta veterans Sarah D’Alelio, Sara McMann, Colleen Schneider and Michelle Ould.
As a result of the change, the flyweight match-up between UFC veteran DeAnna Bennett (8-3-1) and Mexico’s Karina Rodríguez (6-2) has been elevated to the co-main event.
Invicta FC 28 takes place Saturday, March 24, from the Union Event Center in Salt Lake City. The event will stream live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass at 6 p.m. MT.
