Invicta FC 25 takes place at Tachi Palace Casino in Lemoore, Calif. The card streams live on UFC Fight Pass. In the main event, Raquel Pa'aluhi (6-5) will take on Yana Kunitskaya (9-3-1) for the now-vacant bantamweight title.
Tonya Evinger vacated the belt to move to the UFC to fight former Invicta FC featherweight champ Cris Cyborg for the UFC’s 145-pound title, necessitating the new title fight between Pa’aluhi and Kunitskaya.
Ahead of the main event, the promotion has put together a preview show in advance of the card. “Invicta FC 25: Road to Pa’aluhi vs Kunitskaya” premiered online Tuesday. The show, written and narrated by former UFC and Invicta FC fighter Julie Kedzie, who does analyst work for the promotion’s broadcasts, features Pa’aluhi and Kunitskaya behind the scenes before their fight.
