The injury bug not only struck the UFC today, but Invicta FC. With three days until their next card, featherweight Charmaine Tweet has been removed due to visa issues.
MMA Rising confirmed with the promotion that the Canadian was off the main card. Tamikka Brents was given the call last minute and meets Ediane Gomes.
It’s the third time an opponent has been changed on Gomes. An injury caused her to be removed from a featherweight title eliminator against Cristiane “Cyborg” Santos on the last card.
Brents debuted for the promotion in January with a decision over Amanda Bell. She’s 2-0 since turning pro in November of last year.
Invicta FC 6 is Saturday from the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, MO. The show airs on pay-per-view for $14.95.
