Earlier this week, Invicta FC announced a matchup between flyweight champion Barb Honchak (9-2) and Japanese import Takayo Hashi (15-4-1) would serve as the main event for the recently announced Invicta FC 9 in November.

On Tuesday nine new bouts were added to the card.

In the co-main event, strawweight Mizuki Inoue (8-2), currently riding a seven fight unbeaten streak, will square off against promotional newcomer Karolina Kowalkiewicz (5-0). This will mark Inoue’s second fight under the Invicta banner, with her first coming at Invicta FC 6 where she walked away with a unanimous decision win over The Ultimate Fighter 20 cast member Bec Rawlings.

Also on the card is another strawweight matchup between Ayaka Hamasaki (10-1) and 22-year-old Herica Tiburcio (8-2), who will also be making her Invicta debut. Hamasaki was seen last walking with first round TKO victory over Naho Sugiyaama in August. Prior to this win she suffered third round TKO loss to current UFC strawweight Claudia Gadelha in their title elimination bout at Invicta FC 6.

Additionally, Kaitlin Young (7-8-1) will meet Cindy Dandois (5-1) in a featherweight bout. Young enters this bout with Invicta record of 0-3-1 while Dandois will be making her Invicta debut.
