Invicta FC 28: Morandin and Jandiroba battle for strawweight belt

The full card has been announced for Salt Lake City’s Invicta FC 28 card in March.

Brazilian strawweights Janaisa Morandin (10-1-0) and Virna Jandiroba (12-0-0) will compete for the company’s 115-pound belt in the main event.

The 23-year-old “Evil Princess” lost her cage debut with Invicta to former champion Livia Renata Souza but rebounded with a decision win over Kimberly Novaes at Invicta FC 26 in December 2017.

In the meantime, Jandiroba, 29, submitted Amy Montenegro in her debut at Invicta FC 26.

The co-main event has Japan’s Mizuki Inoue (12-4-0) taking on Milana Dudieva (11-7-0). Inoue, 23,  has a four fight win streak going, but hasn’t fought since July 2016 at Invicta FC 18, where she submitted Lynn Alvarez.

Dudieva, 28, hails from Russia and needs a win badly. She has lost her last four bouts, including a TKO loss to Vanessa Porto at Invicta FC 26.

The current full card is:

Strawweight Title: Janaisa Morandin (10-1) vs. Virna Jandiroba (12-0)
Strawweight: MIZUKI (12-4) vs. Milana Dudieva (11-7)
Flyweight: DeAnna Bennett (8-3-1) vs. Karina Rodríguez (6-2)
Strawweight: Kali Robbins (5-0) vs. Pearl Gonzalez (6-3)

Bantamweight: Kerri Kenneson (2-0) vs. Chelsea Chandler (0-0)
Atomweight: Jillian DeCoursey (1-0) vs. Rebekah Levine (1-0)
