Unless you are limited by contract, while your loyalty is admirable it is an ideal that you should overlook for your best career interests... i found out the hard way at your age in another sport that loyalty only gets one so far, and to pass up the opportunity for the big show would be for most people a mistake of youth. or I could be way off...keep plugging away!

I'm sure they will considering the relationship those promotions have. UFC has no problem paying fighter to fight on Invicta shows I'm pretty sure Invicta will have no problem letting all their attractive good for TV 135's join the cast of TUF.That's how totally separate promotions with no financial ties conduct business.

So what happens with all the women that are signed with invicta at the moment? Some of the best women fighters are in that promotion. Are they going to be able to trial?
