Former Invicta FC Flyweight Champion Jennifer Maia has already competed three times under the UFC banner and after signing a new six fight deal with the promotion, is going to be fighting for a while longer in the UFC.
MMA Fighting first reported that Maia had signed a new deal with the UFC, but any financial numbers associated with the contract were not revealed.
Maia holds a 2-1-0 record in the UFC (17-5-1 overall), with those victories coming over the duo of Alexis Davis and Roxanne Modafferi. Maia, as was previously stated, is a former Invicta FC Flyweight Champion, defeating Vanessa Porto by unanimous decision at Invicta FC 15 to claim the gold. Maia isn’t known as a fighter who is a finisher, as the competitor has picked up more than half of her professional MMA victories have come by way of decision.
A newly signed Maia is back in action this November at UFC 244, facing Katlyn Chookagian in a women’s flyweight division encounter.
UFC 244 takes place on Saturday, November 2 from Madison Square Garden in New York, New York with no main event announced at this time. Fightful is providing live coverage of the event, with a post-show podcast to follow.
