Invicta FC president Shannon Knapp went to Facebook earlier in the week to warn of managers claiming association with the promotion.
WMMA veteran Tara LaRosa said the person making false claims is Brett Atchley. She posted the following on the matter.
“This man tried to have me ‘blackballed’ from InvictaFC and StrikeForce over a year ago. He physically accosted me at the InvictaFC 3 show, and in the Seattle airport afterwards. I have proof, I have witnesses, I have lawyers, a powerful manager, and a team who stands behind me… Brett Atchley, you have nothing. You cannot hurt me, you cannot sue me, you have no power over me whatsoever. I have no reservations about standing against you to protect others. You cannot hurt them any more.”
LaRosa has been in the sport for over a decade and made her Invicta FC debut in October with a loss to Vanessa Porto. The 21-3 LaRosa has no return date.
