Invicta FC 21 Loses a Bout, but Also Adds One

Invicta Fighting Championships on Tuesday learned that Brieta Carpenter, scheduled to compete this Saturday at Invicta FC 21, suffered a concussion during training. As a result, Carpenter has been removed from the fight card.

With fight night less than a week away, a short-notice replacement was not available for the flyweight bout. Carpenter’s opponent, boxing champion Heather Hardy, will be rescheduled for a future event.

UFC veteran Elizabeth Phillips (5-4) and Leah “Nidas” Letson (3-1), an airwoman in the Wisconsin Air National Guard, have verbally agreed to a match-up at featherweight, once again bringing the Invicta FC 21 fight card to eight total bouts.
