Press Release – The Invicta FC flyweight roster has added another fighter.

Unbeaten Emily Corso is the latest combatant to join the expanding 125-pound division. The 26-year-old Oregon fighter carries a perfect 4-0 record in her professional career. She also went 9-1 as an amateur. All four of her pro wins have come via submission within the last calendar year.

Known as “The Mantis Shrimp,” Corso is a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu purple belt and trains out of World Class Athletics. She has held titles with numerous local promotions and will look to quickly rise up the Invicta flyweight ranks.

“I remember watching Invicta cards years ago and musing with friends how getting signed with Invicta would be the holy grail of an MMA career — real proof that you’ve ‘made it’ as a fighter. I’m grateful to have my chance to climb into the cage with the best in the business.”

“I’m thrilled about the possible opponents that I’ll have with Invicta. I have the utmost respect for the women of my division. I believe I’ve earned the opportunity to meet my idols as equals and I look forward to showing Invicta’s athletes and fans why that is.”

Invicta also recently announced the signing of Aspen Ladd (0-0), Sharon Jacobson (1-1) and Mariana Morais (9-2) to their flyweight division, as well as the re-signing of Lynn Alvarez (6-3) to the strawweight division.

    Pacific NW has a great depth of talent out there likely due to the mentioned on here the NCAAs womens wrestling championships. Tuff n uff recently featured Alenna Nilsen who would be a great opponent vs Callie Cutler known for using german suplex.  We have yet to see upper Michigan and teammate Amanda Bobby Cooper a Michigan boxer vs Oregon wrestler that would be a great card match up.

    Pacific NW has a great depth of talent out there likely due to the amount of universities having  women’s wrestling programs. Tuff n uff recently featured Alenna Nilsen who would be a great opponent vs Callie Cutler known for using german suplex.  We have yet to see another signee as in Amanda Bobby Cooper.  Amanda a Michigan boxer / mma vs Emily Oregon wrestler /mma would be a great card along with Callie n Alenna.
