<p>Current Invicta bantamweight champion Tonya Evinger will face Helena Kolesnyk at Invicta FC 24.</p> <p>Kolesnyk was originally expected to face Megan Anderson for the featherweight title but Anderson was picked up by the UFC to face Cris Cyborg for the UFC 145-lb title. Evinger stepped up instead and the bout was demoted to a three-round, non-title fight.</p> <p>The news was <a href="http://www.ufc.com/news/Anderson-UFC-jump-opens-door-for-Evinger">announced</a> on the UFC&#39;s website on Tuesday.</p> <p>This fight marks Kolesnyk&rsquo;s (5-0) promotional debut. She has stopped four of her five opponents in the first round and one in the second. Her most recent victory is a 25-second TKO of Tatiana Portnova at a regional show in Russia.</p> <p>Evinger (19-5) is on an 11-fight unbeaten streak with her most recent win being a second-round rear-naked choke win over Yana Kunitskaya. She previously faced Kunitskaya at IFC 20 where she originally suffered a controversial submission loss that was overturned by the Missouri Athletic Commission. Seven of the wins on her current streak come by way of stoppage.</p>
