Invicta Fighting Championships has been forced to shuffle its card at Invicta FC 10 due to an “unforeseen delay in visa processing” for Vanessa Porto.

The all women’s promotion announced on Thursday that Porto will not be able to fight Roxanne Modafferi on Dec. 5 inside the Arena Theater in Houston and instead undefeated Andrea Lee will fill in.

Lee, a 25-yea-old Karate Mafia representative who hails from Shreveport, LA., will look to remain undefeated to start her mixed martial arts career. “KGB” has fought once for Invicta FC already, besting Shannon Sinn unanimously on the judges’ scorecards at Invicta FC 9.

On the opposite end, Modafferi will try to put as much distance as possible between herself and the six-fight losing streak she broke against Tara LaRosa at Invicta FC 8. “The Happy Warrior” will hold a substantial advantage over Lee in the experience department, having already competed professionally 27 times.
