The top women’s mma promotion in the country Invicta FC just added some heat to their ever expanding roster. In state top prospect Kelly D’Angelo (2-0) and two other fighters were added to the promotion in news earlier this week. The strawweight fighter joins bantamweight prospect Kelly Faszholz (3-2) and Russian flyweight standout Milana Dudieva (11-5) as a bolster to the already talented group of athletes for Invicta FC.
Full time firefighter Kelly D’Angelo has had an impressive start in her pro career. Undefeated so far in her first two professional fights with two stoppages including a highlight submission back in RFA 44. Kelly is unbeaten including her amateur record and adds to the always popular division in Invicta FC. MMA Wreckage spoke with Invicta FC matchmaker Kaitlin Young about the acquisition of D’Angelo who had this to say:
We are excited to have Kelly joining Invicta. She has shown great promise at the start of her career, and we are looking forward to her future fights. Fans can be on the lookout for her in 2017.
Milana Dudieva is a former UFC veteran who has stopped 9 of her 11 opponents. After two losses she looks to find hope in a new division in Invicta FC. Kelly Faszholz has also tasted the flavor of the UFC and looks to rebound after two straight losses. She is also a finisher on the mat and will be a sturdy test for anyone in the 135 pound division.
We should see match ups for all three fighters in 2017. Invicta FC returns on March 25th with Invicta FC 22 in a rematch between Tonya Evinger and Yana Kuniskaya for the bantamweight title.. The full lineup for Invicta FC 22 is listed below.
