Mollie Estes - Invicta FCThe Invicta FC matchmaking team has been working overtime as of late after a recent run of injuries to the company’s April 5 event. The latest health-related withdrawal to hit Invicta FC 5 involves Veronica Rothenhausler who was set to meet Mollie Estes, though a replacement has already been found in the form of Julia Budd.

Budd was already scheduled to face Fiona Muxlow on the Kansas City card but was left available when the Aussie was tabbed to fill a vacancy against Cristiane Santos at the same show.

The MMA Corner was first to report the change with Invicta FC officials having since confirmed it.

Budd is 4-2 in her career with three knockouts and wins in her last two tilts. Comparably, Estes is 1-1 and is looking to get back on the winning track after losing to Olympic medalist Randi Miller last April.
