Tonya Evinger’s opportunity to fight for the vacant UFC featherweight title has created an opportunity for Raquel Pa’aluhi (6-5-0) and Yana Kunitskaya (9-3-0, 1NC) and the vacant  bantamweight title August 31 at Invicta FC 25.

Kunitskaya, who challenged for the belt twice against Evinger will look to use her height and reach advantages against Pa’aluhi, who is 3-1-0 in her last 4 fights.

Meanwhile, Angela Hill, who vacated the straw weight belt to fight in the UFC has created a similar opportunity for former champion Livia Renata Souza (10-1-0) and Jodie Esquibel (6-2-0).

Lemoore California and the Tachi Palace Hotel and Casino will be the place where the action goes down.


As usual, the card will stream live on UFC Fight Pass starting at 6 p.m. PT/9 p.m. ET.

Additional bouts are expected to be announced later.
