Tonya Evinger and Angela Hill to defend titles at Invicta FC 20
Invicta Fighting Championships today announced its final event of the calendar year, taking place once again inside historic Scottish Rite Temple in Kansas City, Mo., on Friday, November 18th.
Streaming live and exclusively on UFC Fight Pass, Invicta FC 20 will feature two title tilts, equaling the championship-level output of September’s Invicta FC 19 card.
Invicta FC bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger looks to continue her divisional domination, accepting the challenge of Yana Kunitskaya, who makes her promotional debut.
Evinger enters the bout on a nine-fight winning streak, most recently defending her title for the first time – a unanimous decision victory – against Colleen Schneider at Invicta FC 17 in May.
Kunitskaya, signed by the organization late last year, will attempt to hand Evinger her first loss in over five years. The 26-year-old Russian brings punishing power to the match-up, as seven of her nine career victories have come by way of strikes.
In the co-main event, newly crowned Invicta FC strawweight champion Angela Hill makes her first title defense against ascending Brazilian challenger Kaline Medeiros.
Since joining the organization in early 2016, Hill has gone undefeated inside the Invicta FC cage, picking up three wins in that time. She captured gold by defeating then-champion Livia Renata Souza at Invicta FC 17 in May.
Medeiros, herself undefeated under the Invicta FC banner, has won five straight fights and last competed at Invicta FC 19 less than one month ago, earning a unanimous decision victory over Manjit Kolekar.
