With Bellator officially out of the women’s MMA game, another fighter has found a new home.
Munah Holland competed twice under the Bellator banner before the organization’s recent announcement that it wasn’t keeping its female fighters busy enough and was closing its women’s divisions. So she has signed with Invicta FC.
Officials today announced the 38-year-old as the newest addition to the organization’s 125-pound flyweight division.
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, and a debut date hasn’t been set.
Holland, who was born in Malaysia but spent her childhood throughout the U.S., got her start with the Northeast’s popular Ring of Combat promotion, where she defeated Kim Couture in her pro debut. She owns a 5-2 record with three career knockouts. Recently, she was on a 4-0 run, which included knockouts of notables Marianna Kheyfets and Carina Damm, before a September 2012 decision loss to Michelle Ould at Bellator 74.
The versatile Holland, an instructor and manager at Tiger Schulmann’s MMA in North Plainfield New Jersey, has also competed in boxing, kickboxing and muay Thai.
