The Invicta FC 17 card just got a bit more exciting.
In the latest round of bookings, Christine Stanley will now face Shannon Sinn at 125 lbs.
Stanley is coming off three straight wins and has a record of 4-1. She most impressively had a first-round TKO win over Laura Salazar at Invicta 11 in February 2015. The 35-year-old Alliance MMA star was supposed to fight at Invicta 15, but had her opponent drop out due to injury.
Her opponent Shannon Sinn is 2-2, coming off a win over Maureen Riordon in April 2015.
Additionally, Rachael Ostovich will now take on Ariel Beck. The announcement came Friday via Invicta FC Radio.
Ostovich (2-2) fell to fellow up-and-comer Andrea Lee in a third-round submission last September. The 25-year-old Hawaii native won two straight before that.
Beck is 3-2 and is making her Invicta debut at this event. She lost to Lee by submission in her last fight, under the Legacy FC banner.
Invicta FC 17 will take place on May 7, and will be headlined by a bantamweight title fight between champion Tonya Evinger and Colleen Schneider. In the co-main event, strawweight champion Livia Renata Souza will fight Angela Hill.
