Kansas City, Mo. — Invicta Fighting Championships today announced the signing of three athletes to its roster.
Joining the flyweight division will be Russia’s Milana Dudieva (11-5). The 27-year-old UFC veteran has stopped nine of her 11 career victories — all inside the first round — including six by way of submission. She has shared the cage with the likes of fellow Invicta fighters Pannie Kianzad and Elizabeth Phillips during her 16-fight career.
Bolstering the 135-pound division is Kelly Faszholz (3-2). Like Dudieva, Faszholz is a UFC veteran with a propensity for finishes on the mat. All three of her career wins have come via submission. The 31-year-old battled former Invicta titleholder Lauren Murphy in a “Fight of the Night” performance last year.
The strawweight division has a fresh face in Missouri’s Kelly D’Angelo (2-0). In addition to her unblemished professional record, D’Angelo also went 5-0 as an amateur. She topped fellow Invicta fighter Samantha Diaz in her most recent outing.
Bouts for the new roster additions have not been finalized at this time. Check InvictaFC.com for future updates on all four athletes.
