Unbeaten Livia Renta Souza (9-0) co-headlines the event, putting her Invicta FC strawweight title on the line against UFC veteran Angela “Overkill” Hill (4-2).

Also taking place in the strawweight division, Japanese sensation MIZUKI (11-4) looks to make it four straight wins when she meets newcomer Aline Serio (9-5) of Brazil.
