A veteran of Invicta FC’s proving ground herself, Nunes said: “I’ve been very fortunate throughout my career to fight for the best organizations in the world. In my new position, I hope to be able to use my experience as a fighter and a champion to help groom the next generation. I’m honored to be a part of their journey at Invicta.”

Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp added: “I’ve known and worked with Amanda for a long time, going all the way back to our Strikeforce days. She was already part of the Invicta family, but now it’s official. I can’t think of a better ambassador for the sport and our organization.”

Invicta FC 27 streams live and exclusively via UFC FIGHT PASS at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT on Saturday, Jan. 13.
