Strawweight Lynn Alvarez Returns to Invicta FC

Kansas City, Mo. — A familiar face is returning to Invicta Fighting Championships.

Strawweight Lynn Alvarez has rejoined the promotion to strengthen the 115-pound division.

The 29-year-old Alvarez has scored six wins over the course of her nine-fight career that dates back to 2007. Five of those victories have come via submission.

“Lights Out” has competed against many of the sport’s elite, including former Invicta champion Carla Esparza. The veteran holds wins over current Invicta fighters Michelle Waterson and Michelle Ould.

“I’m excited to be back with Invicta,” said Alvarez. “They’re doing amazing things for women’s MMA and treat their fighters right. I can’t wait to fight for them and earn my way to their 115-pound title.”

Alvarez will return to the Invicta cage in early 2015.
