There is a new addition to the UFC Women’s Flyweight Division as Invicta Fighting Championship Flyweight Champion Jennifer Maia has signed a multi-fight deal with the promotion.
It was Maia who made the announcement through Instagram:
Tudo no seu tempo... Agradeço ao carinho e mensagens de todos, é isso que me motiva cada vez mais e me faz ver que estou no caminho certo. Assinar contrato com o grande evento @ufc é uma conquista e realização de todos que estão a minha volta, agradeço a toda equipe que tenho, através da minha vontade me guiam a mostrar um belo trabalho em equipe.

Here is an English translation of what Maia wrote, provided by Google Translate:
“Everything in its time... I thank the affection and messages of all, that is what motivates me more and more and makes me see that I am on the right path. Signing a contract with the big @ufc event is an achievement and achievement for everyone that is around me, I thank all the team that I have, through my will guide me to show a beautiful team work. I am very grateful also to all who gave me the opportunity to build my trajectory!”
Maia enters the organization with a record of 15-4-1 and she hasn’t suffered a defeat since a decision loss to UFC veteran DeAnna Bennett at Invicta FC 10. Maia won the Invicta FC Flyweight Title when she defeated Vanessa Porto at Invicta FC 16 and she would defend the belt twice, including a victory over UFC veteran Roxanne Modaferi at Invicta FC 19.
There is no word yet on when Maia will make her UFC debut or whom that fight can come against.
