Invicta 28 Main Card Top Fights
Mizuki Inoue vs. Vima Jandiroba
- Record: Inoue 12-4 / Jandiroba 12-0
- Opening MMA Betting Odds: Inoue -120 / Jandiroba -114
In the main event, Japan’s Mizuki Inoue takes on undefeated Brazilian Virna Jandiroba. The belt was left vacant when former champion Angela Hill returned to the UFC.
The 23-year-old Inoue (12-4) is riding a four-fight winning streak that includes a second-round submission (armbar) win over Lynn Alvarez at Invicta 18 way back in July of 2016. The 29-year-old Jandiroba is undefeated (12-0) and will make her second Invicta FC appearance after beating Amy Montenegro via first-round submission (armbar) at Invicta FC 26 in December.
The event was originally scheduled to feature Virna Jandiroba vs. Janaisa Morandin for the title, but Morandin pulled out of the fight on March 2. Mizuki was initially set to face Milana Dudieva before stepping in to replace Morandin in the main event.
DeAnna Bennet vs. Karina Rodríguez
- Record: Bennet 8-3-1 / Rodríguez 6-2
- Opening MMA Betting Odds: Bennet +160 / Rodríguez -210
33-year-old Flyweight DeAnna Bennett suffered three straight losses before fighting Melinda Fabian to a draw at The Ultimate Fighter: A New World Champion Finale in December.
The 32-year-old Karina Rodriguez will look to extend her three-fight winning streak after beating Christine Ferea via unanimous decision at Invicta FC 26.
Kali Robins vs. Pearl Gonzalez
