A bantamweight duel pitting Pannie Kianzad against Raquel Pa’aluhi is among four new additions to the Invicta FC 21 card.
The female promotion also announced that Aspen Ladd will meet Sijara Eubanks at 135 pounds; DeAnna Bennett will take on Jodie Esquibel at strawweight and Heather Hardy will face Brieta Carpenter at flyweight.
Invicta FC 21 takes place at the Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo., on Jan. 14 and is headlined by a featherweight tilt between Megan Anderson and Charmaine Tweet. The card will stream in its entirety on UFC Fight Pass.
Kianzad went unbeaten in her first eight professional appearances before falling to reigning bantamweight queen Tonya Evinger via second-round TKO non-title bout at Invicta FC 14 in September 2015. “Sexy Scramble” has not competed since that defeat.
Pa’aluhi, meanwhile, saw a three-fight winning streak come to an end in a split-decision setback to Colleen Schneider at Invicta FC 15. The Hawaiian is 5-5 as a professional, with notable wins over Ediane Gomes and Kaitlin Young.
