Invicta Fighting Championships announces eight additions to the promotion’s roster

Kansas City, Mo. – Invicta Fighting Championships today announced eight additions to the promotion’s unparalleled roster of female fighters.

Strawweight will see the greatest influx of talent, with 5 combatants joining an already talent-rich division. “Love Boat” Jamie Moyle (4-3), who commenced her professional profession with Invicta, returns to the promotion as a contestant on the twenty third season of The Ultimate Fighter and a three-fight UFC veteran.

California’s Danielle “Dynamite” Taylor (9-4) has also been signed to compete at strawweight. Taylor was once a two-time King of the Cage champion before becoming a member of the UFC, the place she notched five fights, such as wins in opposition to former Invicta champion Jessica Penne and striker Seo Hee Ham.

Twenty-five-year-old Viviane “Sucuri” Pereira (13-2) rounds out the list of former UFC strawweights to sign with Invicta. The Brazilian brings with her a resume highlighted by means of victories over former UFC title challenger Valerie Letourneau and present day UFC contender Poliana Botelho.

An agreement is in place for noticeably touted Japanese prospect Kanako Murata (8-1) to fight solely for Invicta FC when not competing under the Rizin Fighting Federation banner. During her time with Rizin, the strawweight wrestler has picked up amazing victories towards Americans Angela Magana and Kyra Batara.

Finally, following a successful amateur career, strawweight Valerie “The Violator” Wong (0-0) will make her professional debut for Invicta FC.

Former Invicta featherweight title challenger Faith “The Immortal” McMah (6-3) and French featherweight Zarah Fairn Dos Santos (6-2) have been signed to bolster the 145-pound division.

In her three fights for Invicta, McMah, formerly Van Duin, confronted present day UFC featherweight champion Cris “Cyborg” Justino, UFC bantamweight contender Irene Aldana and veteran knockout artist Amanda Bell. Dos Santos is an Invicta newcomer with four first-round finishes to her name.

Ranked as one of the top fighters in Florida, Caitlin Sammons (0-0) most recently competed as an amateur bantamweight. When she makes her Invicta debut, it will be in the flyweight division.
