Invicta FC 43, featuring a championship doubleheader, has now been bolstered by the addition of three new fights.

Invicta FC 43 had already seen it’s main and co-main event announced for November 20. Those being a flyweight title fight between Pearl Gonzalez and Erin Blanchfield, and Emily Ducote taking on Monserrat Ruiz for the vacant strawweight title. However, that fight card has been shored up with three fights being added per a press release from the promotion.

Kicking off the card will be a pair of Invicta FC strawweight newcomers, as California based fighter Juliana “Killer” Miller takes on Kendal Holowell of Arkansas. Holowell is making her professional debut at Invicta FC 43.

Next up on the card is an important flyweight fight between Stephanie Geltmacher and Trisha Cicero. Geltmacher is looking for her third win inside the Invicta cage, and was last in action in a Fight of the Year contender against Victoria Leonardo at Invicta FC 36. Cicero on the other hand is coming off of three straight wins, including a decision victory over Laura Gallardo at Invicta FC 40 in July.

Then prior to the two championship fights on the November card, we’ll be seeing Courtney King in the Invicta cage in a featherweight bout against an opponent to be named soon.

The event itself will be overseen by the Kansas Athletic Commission and will feature open scoring for all the fights on the card. As with all Invicta FC events since March, it will take place behind closed doors without fans and media. All fighters and their corners will be tested for COVID-19 prior to the event.

Invicta FC 43 goes down on November 20, in Kansas City, Kansas. The full fight card can be seen on UFC Fight Pass starting at 7 PM CT.
