Alexa Grasso Injured, Angela Hill Steps in Against Stephanie Eggink at Invicta FC 16

The lineup for Invicta FC 16 has suffered two late changes.

Today the promotion announced that unbeaten Mexican strawweight Alexa Grasso and debuting bantamweight Amberlynn Orr have been removed the card due to injury.

Stepping in for Grasso will be UFC veteran Angela Hill. Hill made her promotional debut earlier in 2016, knocking out Alida Gray at Invicta FC 15 in January. She’ll take on former title challenger Stephanie Eggink on less than two weeks’ notice.


The unbeaten Ladd will move up from flyweight to take on fellow undefeated fighter Kelly McGill. Ladd has scored back-to-back finishes inside the Invicta cage, most recently submitting Amanda Bobby Cooper at Invicta FC 14.

Invicta FC 16 will see recently crowned atomweight champion Ayaka Hamasaki make her first title defense against the hard-charging Amber Brown. In the co-main event, the promotion will crown an interim flyweight champion as Brazilians Vanessa Porto and Jennifer Maia face off.

The event takes place from the Trinidad Pavilion at Tropicana Las Vegas on Friday, March 11. It will stream on UFC Fight Pass beginning at 8:30 p.m. ET.
