One of the top Brazilian prospects have signed a multi-fight deal with Invicta FC.
Virna Jandiroba, unbeaten in 11 professional bouts, announced on her Facebook page that she has inked a deal with the promotion on Tuesday. Sources close to the situation told MMA Fighting that Jandiroba has signed a six-fight deal.
Jandiroba’s promotional debut is still yet to be determined.
"Hey guys, I got great news,” Jandoriba wrote. "We've just signed with the biggest women's MMA event in the world, Invicta FC, which takes place in the US.
"I'm very happy with this accomplishment, our path has never been easy and all that we have conquered is our own merits. We have so many reasons to be proud! Let's conquer the world! I wanna say thanks to all of them whom were truly by my side, wishing the best for me! Let's go together."
"Carcara" (11-0) won all four of her fights in 2016, including a first-round submission victory over former UFC and Bellator fighter Lisa Ellis, and beat another UFC veteran in Ericka Almeida via decision at Fight 2 Night 2 in Brazil last month.
