The eight-fight card for Invicta FC 34 is set.

Officials announced the final four bouts for the Feb. 15 card, which is set to take place at Memorial Hall in Kansas City, Kan., including two flyweight encounters: Victoria Leonardo vs. Jamie Milanowski and Christina Ricker vs. Caitlin Sammons.

A featherweight bout between Courtney King and Holli Salazar has also been added.

Also of note, Brogan Walker-Sanchez has been forced to withdraw from the card due to injury and Karina Rodriguez (6-3) has been selected to take her spot opposite Milana Dudieva in a four-woman tournament to determine the No. 1 contender at 125 pounds. DeAnna Bennett (9-4-1) and Miranda Maverick (4-1) are the other two fighters in the bracket.

Rodriguez was originally scheduled to fight Tracy Cortez (4-1) in a tournament reserve spot. Stepping in on short notice for Rodriguez will be unbeaten 19-year-old Erin Blanchfield (3-0).

Invicta FC 34 features a vacant flyweight title main event match between Vanessa Porto (20-8) and Pearl Gonzalez (9-3).

Leonardo (3-1), who has also competed professionally in boxing and kickboxing, was defeated in her Invicta debut last September, losing via first-round submission to Maverick. She rebounded with a submission win of her own against Monica Medina at a Gulf Coast MMA show the following month.

In December, Leonardo picked up a second-round knockout win in a boxing match against one-time UFC and Invicta fighter Ariel Beck.

Milanowski is 2-2 as a pro, having won her most recent fight via second-round armbar at a V3 Fights event last June. This will be her Invicta debut.

Ricker (1-1) and Sammons (0-0) will also be making their debuts, with Ricker coming off of a unanimous decision win over Hayler Turner for Valor Fights, and Sammons turning pro after a 7-1 amateur career.

Both King (1-1) and the debuting Salazar (1-0-1) will be looking for their first Invicta wins.
