The all-female promotion smoothly adjusted to the UFC scooping up 11 of their best strawweights late last year, as Invicta FC officials recently replaced their departed stars by securing the services of Brazilian striker Herica Tiburcio, 115-pound submission ace Livia Renata Souza, North Carolina striker Ashley "Doll Face" Greenway and atomweight phenom Amber Brown, along with heavy-handed superstars Irena Aldana and Karolina Kowalkiewicz.
Additionally, Invicta FC officials announced the signings of TUF 18 alums Peggy "The Daywalker" Morgan and Roxanne Modafferi.
"Women’s MMA is truly a global sport, and at Invicta we have scoured the globe in order to bring the best talent to our fans," Invicta president Shannon Knapp said. "There is talent all around the globe, and our goal at Invicta has been to provide athletes with a worldwide platform to display their talent."
Invicta FC matchmaker Julie Kedzie is also quite pleased with the new signings.
"This new class provides me with added depth to put together match ups that we believe the fans want to see," said Kedzie.
In total, the promotion has signed 15 women since the UFC signed away most of their top strawweights.
Founded in 2012 by longtime MMA executive Shannon Knapp and former matchmaker Janet Martin, Invicta FC is committed to pushing women's MMA to the next level by developing future superstars of the sport.
Invicta FC did a great job loading their roster with international talent, but there are plenty of local U.S.-based stars the promotion failed to secure.
