Brazilian flyweight Daiana Torquato will now fight Shanna Young at Invicta FC 39 after Mariya Agapova was forced off the card because of an auto-pedestrian accident in South Florida, the company announced Saturday.

The fight card takes place at the Memorial Hall in Kansas City on Feb. 7. Jinh Yu Frey puts her atomweight belt on the line against Ashley Cummins in the main event.

Young (7-2) last fought in November, defeating Maiju Suotama via decision. “The Shanimal” was part of Invicta’s Phoenix Series 2 eight-woman, one-night tournament in September, but lost to eventual winner Miranda Maverick in the semifinal.

Torquato (9-3) also competed in that tournament, which bouts were considered “exhibition matches”, defeating Milana Dudieva via split decision before losing via submission to DeAnna Bennett in a semifinal bout.

Another change to the card sees Tina Pettigrew (1-0) replacing Kristina Pettigrew against Monica Franco (1-0) at bantamweight.
