Invicta Fighting Championships has announced that top 115 pound strawweight Felice Herrig has agreed to an exclusive multi-year deal with the organization.
Invicta FC officials have said that Herrig would fight for the promotion later this year.
Herrig previously has fought for Bellator MMA and XFC, with her last fight being in March when she defeated Heather Clark at Bellator 94.
“I couldn’t be happier than I am now, after signing with Invicta FC,” said Herrig. “I have seen them do so much for women and really give them a chance to shine. I don’t think anyone realized how big Invicta FC would become, and I am truly proud to say I have found a home with them.
Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp is excited to have Felice Herrig in the company.
“We are excited about bringing Felice, one of the brightest, young talents in the women’s field of MMA, under the Invicta FC umbrella,” said Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp. “Felice has overcome a lot of stiff competition, thus far, during her career, and we are looking forward to seeing her perform against some of the top women in the world who fight for Invicta FC.”
