Kansas City, Mo. — The lineup for Invicta Fighting Championships 21 is complete.
Joining the previously announced five bouts will be three additional match-ups.
Flyweight Andrea Lee (4-2) will welcome Jenny Liou (6-4) back to the Invicta cage. Lee will be making her fifth appearance with the promotion, while Liou will compete at 125 pounds after two previous bouts at strawweight under the Invicta banner.
Also at flyweight, Hawaii’s Rachael Ostovich (3-2) will take on newcomer Christine Ferea (0-0). The 25-year-old Ostovich will look to build off her win at Invicta FC 17 over Ariel Beck. Ferea will make her professional MMA debut after compiling an amateur MMA record of 3-1. “Misfit” also has professional Muay Thai experience with the Las Vegas-based Lion Fight promotion.
Finally, strawweight Amy Montenegro (7-2) will fight for the third time in the Invicta cage against veteran Celine Haga (10-13). Montenegro has won four of her last five, with the lone loss coming via split decision against current UFC fighter Jamie Moyle at Invicta FC 13. Norway’s Haga rides the momentum of nine wins in her last 11 bouts, including four straight first-round submission victories.
