Invicta FC 46: Karina Rodriguez defends flyweight belt against Ketlen Souza

Invicta FC 46 in March will feature a women’s flyweight title defence between champion Karina Rodriguez and challenger Ketlen Souza.

Rodriguez (9-4-0), 36, will be making the first defence since defeating Daiana Torquato on Invicta FC on AXS TV last May.

Meanwhile, Souza (11-3-0), 27, is looking to bring the belt back to her native Brazil. Previously fighting at strawweight, “Esquentadinha” will be making her Invicta debut.

The co-main event also features a female flyweight matchup in Torquato (10-4-0) rematching Milana Dudieva (12-8-0). The two previously met in the second Invicta Phoenix tourney with Torquato winning a narrow split-decision.
