Kansas City, Mo. — The newest division in Invicta FC has a fresh face.
Joining the promotion’s lightweight division will be 24-year-old Felicia Spencer. The Canada-born, Florida-raised fighter earned a contract with the promotion after winning the Tuff-N-Uff “Future Stars of MMA” tournament on Jan. 9.
Spencer, known as “Fee-Nom,” claimed the tournament with two finishes. She submitted Leanne Foster in the opening bout, before earning a TKO over Jessica Richer in the final.
“There is no place I’d rather be signed,” Spencer said of her Invicta contract. “It means that I am going to be competing with the best in the world. It’s an honor to be part of it.”
The wins moved Spencer’s amateur record to 5-1, with five straight victories. She will make her professional debut inside the Invicta cage in 2015.
“I’m sure the rollercoaster of emotions will lead up to my debut, but I know as soon as I walk out and step in the cage, I will be beyond excited and ready to bring it on,” claimed Spencer. ” I will bring the fight to anybody. I hope to be in that cage with someone soon, so that I can earn my place on the roster.”
