Bellator Veteran Felice Herrig Signs with Invicta Fighting Championships

Women’s strawweight talent Felice Herrig has signed an exclusive deal with Invicta Fighting Championships.

The all-female promotion announced the signing on Tuesday, revealing that “Lil Bulldog” has inked a multi-fight contract and will make her promotional debut later this year.

“I couldn’t be happier than I am now, after signing with Invicta FC,” Herrig stated in an official release. “I have seen them do so much for women and really give them a chance to shine. I don’t think anyone realized how big Invicta FC would become, and I am truly proud to say I have found a home with them.”

Herrig, 28, has won four straight fights, posting a pair of wins in the Florida-based Xtreme Fighting Championships before signing with Bellator. Two more victories would follow for the Jeff Curran protégé within the Viacom owned promotion, as Herrig took a unanimous decision from Patricia Vidonic last December before earning a split nod over Heather Clark this past March at Bellator 94. Herrig’s last defeat came in December 2011, when she was outpointed by reigning Invicta 115-pound champion Carla Esparza.

Invicta most recently held its sixth show on July 13, marking the organization’s television pay-per-view debut. Cristiane Justino trumped Marloes Coenen in their headlining rematch, scoring a fourth-round technical knockout over “Rumina” to close the show from the Ameristar Casino Hotel in Kansas City, Mo.
