The newly signed Invicta FC fighter Maria Hougaard Djursaa will fight on the Invicta FC 9 card at The RiverCenter in Davenport, Iowa on Saturday, November 1st. The Dane will face Amanda Bell (2-2) in her debut with the prominent woman’s organization in a bout that will stream live on UFC Fight Pass. The promotion released the match-ups today.
Djursaa has put together a 5 win and 5 loss record, and was recently on an impressive three fight winning streak all by stoppages. However, her most recent opponent, Annalisa Bucci, ended her winning run at EUMMA 9 last May.
The Fight Gym Odense / Shooters BJJ Odense fighter hopes to pick-up where the other Nordic fighter in the promotion left off, as Katja Kankaanpää recently claimed the strawweight title.
Bell trains out of Medford, Oregon and is 26 years old. After losing her first two bouts, she has won her two most recent. The American will also be making her Invicta debut.
