Jessica Philippus’s pro debut is going to have to wait.
Philippus announced Wednesday night that she will be unable to compete in the Invicta 1 event due to health issues dealing with her weight. Rather than try to make the cut and miss weight, she decided to step aside.
In her place, Cassie Rodish (1-3) will take on Meghan Wright in the card opener. Iowa’s Rodish is coming off her first pro win Mariah Johnson this past September.
InvictaFC 1 will stream live and free Apr. 28 on InvictaFC.com
