Invicta FC officials today announced that featherweight Helena Kolesnyk (5-0) will now face Pam Sorenson (5-2), while strawweights Miranda Maverick (2-0) vs. Gabby Romero (2-1) has also been added to the card.

Meanwhile, a bantamweight contest of Yana Kunitskaya (9-3) vs. Raquel Pa’aluhi (6-5) has been shifted to an as-yet-unannounced August card.
