UFC Inks Invicta FC Champ Jennifer Maia to Bolster Women's Flyweight Division

By Jordan Breen Feb 15, 2018

The Ultimate Fighting Championship’s women’s flyweight division just got a boost.

Thursday via Instagram, Invicta Fighting Championships’ 125-pound champion Jennifer Maia announced that she had signed with the UFC. Brazilian outlet Combate was first to report the news.

The 29-year-old Brazilian hasn’t tasted defeat since a unanimous decision loss to DeAnna Bennett over three years ago. Since then, the Chute Boxe product has ripped off six straight wins, including victories over the likes of divisional standouts like Vanessa Porto, Roxanne Modafferi and most recently, previously unbeaten Aga Niedzwiedz on Dec. 8 at Invicta FC 26.

No opponent or date has been announced for Maia’s future UFC debut.
