Porto Out, Andrea Lee Faces Roxanne Modafferi At Invicta FC 10Visa issues have forced Brazilian standout Vanessa Porto out of a planned rematch against Roxanne “The Happy Warrior” Modafferi at Invicta Fighting Championships 10 on December 5th in Houston, Texas. In Porto’s place, Andrea “KGB” Lee has stepped in to face Modafferi in the flyweight fight.

Invicta FC officials confirmed the change on Thursday. Lee, a skilled striker who remains unbeaten in her pro MMA career, won her Invicta FC debut earlier this month by defeating Shannon Sinn. She takes a huge step up in competition to face Modafferi, who defeated Tara LaRosa in September.

Lee (2-0-0) has maintained an active fighting schedule this year that has already included five mixed martial arts bouts. She suffered her lone amateur defeat in January, but bounced back with a pair of impressive victories before announcing plans to turn pro. Her professional debut on September 19th lasted just ten seconds, as she broke opponent Kim Colbert’s finger with a kick. Stepping right back into action, Lee earned a clear-cut Unanimous Decision win over Sinn at Invicta FC 9 and she now seeks to upset the veteran Modafferi next month.

Modafferi (16-11-0) has battled most of the sport’s biggest female names during her 11-year career that has included stints with Smackgirl, Strikeforce, Cage Warriors, Jewels, the UFC and now ultimately Invicta FC. The grappling specialist has recently been working on her striking game and she showcased huge improvements in her standup skills in her most recent fight. Facing off against friend and rival LaRosa for a third time, Modafferi dominated the striking battles en route to a commanding Unanimous Decision win at Invicta FC 8. She now looks for her second straight victory.

Invicta Fighting Championships 10 takes place on December 5th at Arena Theatre in Houston, Texas.
