The "Lil' Bulldog" is ready to take a big bite out of the competition in Invicta FC.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Aug. 13, 2012) - Twenty-eight year-old strawweight (115 pounds) superstar Felice Herrig (9-4) of Crystal Lake, Ill. has signed an exclusive, multi-fight agreement with women's world championship Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) promotion Invicta Fighting Championships.

Herrig, a winner of four consecutive fights and protégé of MMA star Jeff Curran, will make her Invicta FC debut later this year.

"I couldn't be happier than I am now, after signing with Invicta FC," said Herrig. "I have seen them do so much for women and really give them a chance to shine. I don't think anyone realized how big Invicta FC would become, and I am truly proud to say I have found a home with them.

"We are excited about bringing Felice, one of the brightest, young talents in the women's field of MMA, under the Invicta FC umbrella," said Invicta FC President Shannon Knapp. "Felice has overcome a lot of stiff competition, thus far, during her career, and we are looking forward to seeing her perform against some of the top women in the world who fight for Invicta FC."

A seasoned striker who began her fight career as a kickboxer, Herrig was initially introduced to a national audience as a competitor on Fight Girls, the Oxygen network reality series that followed a group of women Muay Thai fighters vying for greatness in Thailand's national sport. Herrig emerged victorious over a champion in Thailand before the series concluded.

Herrig went on to become a world Muay Thai champion, winning the International Kickboxing Federation bantamweight crown on November 15, 2008 by earning a unanimous decision over Katie Meehan in Chicago. She also enjoyed a stint fighting in Chuck Norris' now-defunct kickboxing promotion, World Combat League.

In her last MMA start on March 28, Herrig earned a split decision victory over Heather Clark in Tampa, Fla.
