It’s always refreshing to see new fighters sign with Invicta Fighting Championships, especially when it helps grow a specific division.

In a new release, Invicta FC announced that Sijara Eubanks who will compete in the promotion’s 125-pound division, which is on the verge of becoming the promotion’s showcase weight class.

Eubanks, who will make her professional debut this year, had a short, though successful amateur run with two submission finishes. She is a multiple international Brazilian Jiu Jitsu champion and is both excited and ready to compete in the cage.

“I’m here to bring it. It’s going to be exciting, it’s going to be aggressive, it’s gonna be fun to watch and I can’t wait to put on a show,” Eubanks said in the release. “I’m coming for that belt and whoever I need to fight to get it. ”

While MMA is a melting pot for fighting styles, Brazilian jiu jitsu has been the bread and butter for many fighters. It will be interesting to see what else she has in her arsenal and how she develops her style during her Invicta run.

While the majority of Invicta FC’s stars are veterans of mixed martial arts, the promotion has been a great launchpad for women in the sport. Eubanks will fit in well with fellow proficient grapplers such as Vanessa Porto, Roxanne Modafferi and Jennifer Maia.

Here’s some of her handiwork at a grappling match. If you look closely you’ll recognize her opponent as MMA fighter Marina Shafir.
