There’s a new main event at Invicta Fighting Championships 24.

Evinger replaces Australian Megan Anderson, who moves to the UFC to take on former Invicta titleholder Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino at UFC 214 on July 29.


Joining the new headliner are seven additional bouts.

In the night’s co-main event, UFC veteran Milana Dudieva meets Italy’s Mara Romero Borella at flyweight.
