Vanessa Porto Meets Milana Dudieva, Three Bouts Added to Invicta FC 26

The lineup for Invicta FC 26 has undergone a change and added three new bouts.

The event, which takes place Friday, Dec. 8, from the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo., streams live on UFC Fight Pass, has added UFC veteran Milana Dudieva. She’ll face former flyweight title challenger Vanessa Porto after Porto’s original opponent, Australia’s Jessica-Rose “Jessy Jess” Clark, was signed to face Bec Rawlings in the UFC.

Another Brazilian, undefeated strawweight Virna Jandiroba, will make her promotional debut against veteran Amy Montenegro. Jandiroba enters the contest having won nine of her 11 career bouts via submission. Montenegro is coming off a “Fight of Year” contender against Celine Haga at Invicta FC 21 earlier this year.


In the atomweight division, former title challenger Amber Brown looks to snap a three-fight losing streak when she tangles with Texan Tessa Simpson. Simpson will also look to get back in the win column after falling short against former champion Herica Tiburcio in her most recent outing.

Finally, flyweight knockout artists Karina RodrĂ­guez and Christine Ferea lock horns. Mexico’s RodrĂ­guez put away Brazilian BĂĄrbara Acioly in the first round at Invicta FC 24, while Ferea came up short against current GLORY champion Tiffany Van Soest at Invicta FC 23.

Invicta FC 26 is headlined by a flyweight title clash between champion Jennifer Maia and undefeated Polish fighter Aga NiedĆșwiedĆș.
