Undefeated Tallaght-born prospect, Shauna Bannon is set for her first walk under the Invicta FC banner after recently inking a multi-fight deal with the Shannon Knapp-led promotion – landing at the strawweight limit against Nadia Vera at Invicta FC 49 on September 28. at the Firelake Arena in Shawnee, Oklahoma.
Tackling Mexico native, Vera, Bannon, who made a major impact on the Irish regional mixed martial arts circuit with Cage Legacy, managed to scoop both undisputed flyweight and strawweight gold with wins over Kerry Isom, and Chi Attoh, respectively.
Bannon, who plys her trade under the tutelage of former UFC flyweight contender, Paddy Holohan at Holohan Martial Arts, featured under the IMMAF (International Mixed Martial Arts Federation) scrutiny, where she landed a gold medal on her travels.
The 28-year-old undefeated upstart landed a 9-3 amateur record before making her professional debut at Cage Legacy 15 in April of this year, defeating Isom. Returning in a quickfire outing at Cage Legacy 16 in June earlier this summer, Bannon then stopped the aforenoted, Attoh to land the organization’s undisputed flyweight crown with a series of opening minute ground strikes.
