Featherweight Marina Shafir Signs with Invicta FC
There’s a new arrival in the Invicta FC 145-pound weight class as decorated judoka Marina Shafir has signed with the promotion.
The Moldova native, who trains alongside UFC bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, began competing in MMA in 2012 following a lengthy career in judo. She rattled off five straight, first-round armbar finishes as an amateur before turning pro in 2014.
As a professional, the California-based fighter has earned a first-round finish over Chandra Engel and has locked horns with current Invicta fighter Amanda Bell.
Training out of Glendale Fighting Club, the 27-year-old is expected to make her promotional debut in 2015.Follow MyMMANews.com on Social Media
