Sarah Kaufman isn’t the only former UFC talent making her way to the Invicta Fighting Championships roster.
The all-female promotion officially announced 15 new signings on Thursday. Those included the previously reported deal with Kaufman as well as two-time UFC competitor Pearl Gonzalez. Gonzalez joins Invicta on the heels of back-to-back losses to Cynthia Calvillo and Poliana Botelho. The 31-year-old began her pro MMA career with six victories in seven outings, including a win over current UFC strawweight Cortney Casey-Sanchez.
In addition to Kaufman, Invicta added five other bantamweights: Marciea Allen, Julia Avila Shumate, Kerri Kenneson, Allison Schmidt and Chelsea Chandler.
Meanwhile, four fighters will enter the flyweight ranks: Bianca Daimoni, Monica Medina and Helen Peralta. Finally, Ashley Nichols will join Gonzalez at 115 pounds, while Loma Lookboonmee, Fernanda Priscila Barros Pinheiro and Rebekah Levine will compete at atomweight.
