Invicta FC announced the signing of four fighters to the active roster recently, including a veteran of the GLORY kickboxing cage.
Isis Verbeek, who has faced off against GLORY champion Anissa Meksen, Luanna Alzuguir, Lisa Spangler and Adrianna Vukovic are all now under control of Shannon Knapp and the all-female promotion.
The next Invicta event is Invicta FC 28, which takes place March 24 from the Union Event Center in Salt Lake City, Utah and airs live on UFC Fight Pass. Janaisa Morandin and Virna Jandiroba meet for the vacant strawweight title.
Below is a press release from Invicta on the new signings:
Invicta Fighting Championships has signed four new athletes to its roster.
Joining the atomweight division will be GLORY Kickboxing veteran Isis Verbeek (0-0). With more than 50 combined Muay Thai and kickboxing bouts, the 23-year-old Dutchwoman will make her professional MMA debut inside the Invicta cage. She’s faced many of the world’s best strikers, including current GLORY champion Anissa Meksen.
Bolstering the 125-pound division will be Brazil’s Luanna Alzuguir (0-0). A Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, the 32-year-old is a five-time world champion and an ADCC gold medalist. She earned a third-round submission victory over Brittney Cloudy in her lone amateur MMA bout.
Lisa Spangler (0-0) is the latest addition to the bantamweight division. Dubbed “The Strangler,” she has amassed a record of 9-1 as an amateur, including five finishes by strikes. Fighting out of Gracie Barra in Portland, the 22-year-old Spangler has shared the cage with Invicta veteran Kal Schwartz.
Finally, Croatia’s Adriana Vuković (0-0) is the youngest fighter to sign with the promotion. At just 18 years of age, Vuković has already compiled an amateur record of 6-0-1. Training out of Tristar MMA, the flyweight has won numerous amateur titles in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, kickboxing and MMA.
Look for all four fighters to debut inside the Invicta FC cage in 2018.
