As World Series of Fighting continues to build their women’s strawweight division, they have made another big signing. On Friday morning, the news surfaced that Japanese strawweight Emi Fujino has been signed to the promotion.

“The Kamikaze Angel” has spent her entire professional career fighting in Tokyo, but she is thrilled to get the opportunity to now fight overseas.

“I’ve already faced almost everyone that I can in Japan, so I decided to go outside Japan to find other strong fighters to face,” Fujino said, as translated by Roxanne Modaferri for Sherdog. “It has always been my dream to fight overseas, so I’m truly thrilled [to sign with the World Series of Fighting]. I want to fight strong fighters and see how well I can do on a world-level. My wish is that many people see me fight.”

Fujino (13-7) dropped her last fight in November, but it was a loss to 19-year-old sensation Mizuki Inoue who is one of the brightest young stars in the sport.

Fujino will now try to get back on the winning track inside of the World Series of Fighting cage.

Throughout her career, Fujino has fought in top promotions like Pancrase, Sengoku and Deep.
