Faith Van Duin broke the news on twitter Thursday she will be facing Amanda Bell at InvictaFC 12 on April 24 in Kansas City. The bout will most likely serve as a title eliminator for a 145 title match against Cyborg Justino in July.

Van Duin (4-1) is coming off her first pro loss to Arlene Belnclowe, but has racked up 3 finishes in her career. She won the Storm Damage one night tournament in 2013.

Bell (3-2) recovered from back to back losses to start her career to winning three straight including her first round TKO win over Maria Hougaard Djursaa at InvictaFC 9.

The bout joins the title match between strawweight champion Katja Kankaanpää and undefeated Brazilian Livia Renata Souza.

The card will stream on UFC Fight Pass.

More matches are expected to be announced in the coming days.
