Invicta FC has inked deals with debuting fighters Luanna Alzuguir and Adriana Vukovich, the company announced Saturday. The promotion has yet to officially announce when they will make their professional debuts.

Alzuguir (0-0) competed in an amateur MMA bout back in October, defeating Brittney Cloudy in a flyweight bout (watch here).

The 32-year-old Brazilian, who trains at American Top Team alongside UFC champion Amanda Nunes, is a five-time jiu-jitsu world champion and a ADCC gold medalist. Alzuguir told MMA Fighting that she will fight at 125 pounds.

“I am excited to announce I will be taking the next step in my career as a professional mixed martial artist,” Alzuguir posted on her social media. “No better place than with Invicta FC.”

Vukovich (0-0) also won titles in many combat sports, from jiu-jitsu to boxing to muay Thai, before focusing on MMA.

On her Facebook page, Vukovich states that her record in amateur MMA stands at 6-0-1. The young Croatian talent currently trains at Tristar MMA.

I am so blessed. I have a beautiful family, mommy, daddy, sister, 2 brothers and 2 grandmothers. I love you so much. You mean the world to me. I know I will make you proud one day. I know I will return everything you did and sacrificed for me one day soon. I love you. I love you. I love you. Thank you God for my coach @firas_zahabi who invited me from Croatia all over to Canada, Montreal to train at the Tristar Gym (where I feel so grateful to share the mats with so many great athletes and true fighters) and welcomed me when I only turned 15 years old. He believed in me and saw a potential when I was a baby only and now all I want to do is to win and make him proud to stay in my corner. I am so grateful that I will represent your gym, coach! Now I turned 19 and I just signed with the biggest MMA organization for women @invictafc and what can I say more… I am happy, I am humble. I can do everything through Christ who strengthens me!!!!!!! ❤ I will be the first Croatian woman to sign with Invicta FC, that is kinda cool We hope that everything will be perfect!
