A promotion official confirmed the multi-fight deal to Sherdog.com on Thursday. After making her LFA debut at flyweight, Hughes plans to drop to strawweight for her next appearance. Hughes will have freedom to be released from her contract if the UFC were to come calling.
A 27-year-old representative of Catalyst Fight House, Hughes made her first organizational foray at LFA 81, where she earned a unanimous decision triumph against Lisa Mauldin on Jan. 31. The Everett, Wash., native had finished her first three professional appearances inside the distance.
“So excited to finally announce signing with [LFA]!” Hughes wrote on Instagram. “What an amazing promotion to be a part of. I can’t wait to show everyone an even better performance than my debut next time I step in that cage! Big things are coming, get ready.”
