Tara LaRosa (21-2) is no stranger to the world of MMA, having competed in the sport since 2002. Today she makes her debut for the up-and-coming Invicta FC, who she sees as having a long term investment with.
“I’d wholly love to establish myself here, definitely,” said LaRosa. “They seem really firm and solid, like they’re not going away. I’d have no problem laying down some roots here and working towards a title.”
Her opponent Vanessa Porto (14-5) is also familiar with the sport, debuting in 2005.
“I’m looking forward to getting those top fights that I’ve been really searching for and wanting somebody to give me,” said LaRosa. “I’m really hoping that this is the place and that I’m home.”
Invicta FC 3 takes place tonight and will be streamed for free on the company’s website.
