Amanda Nunes is now part of the matchmaker and athlete development team for Invicta FC. Invicta announced the news on Thursday that Nunes will provide matchmaking input effective immediately and will scout talent for the promotion.

“I’ve started working with Invicta to be a part of the matchmaking team,” Nunes said in the announcement. “It’s going to be awesome. I love to be the matchmaker for Invicta, from my experience and I have a lot of good talents in Brazil. I love to try to find new talent, and I think my friend talked to (promoter) Shannon (Knapp) about it, then Shannon texted me and offered me to be part of the team. I was very happy, and now I’m here. I love to do something with women’s MMA.”

She added, “Since I’ve stepped here into this country, women’s MMA has changed a lot. I’m so happy to be a part of this and help this grow. All those girls have been putting in hard work and good fights in. All the fans love it. Some fans go only to watch the girls fight. I think soon, it’s going to be like UFC is only going to have a show for women’s MMA.”
