With a few late changes, the official fight card is finalized for Invicta FC 26.
The event takes place Dec. 8 at Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo., and the entire event streams live on UFC Fight Pass.
Officials announced on Monday that Japanese strawweight Mizuki Inoue (12-4) has been forced off the card for undisclosed reasons. As a result, Kinberly Novaes (9-3) has stepped in as a replacement and now fights Janaisa Morandin (9-1).
However, due to the change, the bout has been moved down the fight card and will no longer co-headline. Instead, a recently announced fight between top prospect Mackenzie Dern (4-0), a jiu-jitsu specialist with a large fan following, and former title challenger Kaline Medeiros (8-5) has been elevated to co-main-event status.
Additionally, a fight between Invicta FC newcomers and first-time pros Kay Hansen (0-0) and Emilee Prince (0-0), who meet at strawweight, has been added to the card and kicks off the event.
The full Invicta FC 26 lineup includes:
- Champ Jennifer Maia vs. Agnieszka Niedzwiedz – for flyweight title
- Mackenzie Dern vs. Kaline Medeiros
- Janaisa Morandin vs. Kinberly Novaes
- Milana Dudieva vs. Vanessa Porto
- Virna Jandiroba vs. Amy Montenegro
- Amber Brown vs. Tessa Simpson
- Christine Ferea vs. Karina Rodriguez
- Kay Hansen vs. Emilee Prince
