Andrea Lee steps in for Vanessa Porto against Roxanne Modafferi at Invicta FC 10
Rather than waiting for the visa issue to be resolved, Invicta FC officials have tapped rising prospect Andrea Lee (2-0) to replace Porto. Lee, the 2013 Women’s National Golden Gloves Champion, impressed in her Invicta debut, a victory over Shannon Sinn at Invicta FC 9 in November.
Porto is expected to return to the Invicta cage in early 2015 at Invicta FC 11.
