Invicta Fighting Championships has announced that Janaisa Morandin is out of the main event for Invicta FC 28, the strawweight title bout versus Virna Jandiroba.

Japan’s Mizuki Inoue moves up as the replacement.

Mizuki is riding a four-fight win streak. Her last set match was supposed to be a ranking fight against Morandin, yet she pulled out. The former Deep Jewels strawweight champ was originally booked to face UFC vet Milana Dudieva in the co-main of the event. A replacement for Dudieva is being sought.

Invicta FC 28 takes place on March 24 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
