Viviane Pereira’s first fight since leaving the UFC will be as a short-notice replacement.
“Sucuri” has been booked to take on Mizuki Inoue in a strawweight bout at Invicta FC 32 on Nov. 16 at FireLake Arena in Shawnee, Okla., officials recently announced. The Brazilian is stepping in for Heather Clark who withdrew due to an injury.
In four fights with the UFC, Pereira went to a decision each time, picking up wins over Jamie Moyle and Valerie Letourneau before dropping two straight to Yan Xiaonan and Tatiana Suarez. She signed with Invicta in August and currently holds a 13-2 professional record.
Inoue (12-5), a standout in Japan’s Deep-Jewels promotion, most recently competed for the vacant Invicta strawweight title, losing a split decision to Virna Jandiroba in March. That was her first fight since July 2016 and she stepped in as a replacement for Janaisa Morandin. Prior to that, Inoue had won four straight competing for Invicta and Deep, racking up three straight submissions by armbar.
In the main event of Invicta FC 32, Felicia Spencer (5-0) will fight Pam Sorenson (7-2) for a vacant 145-pound title. See the updated card below:
