Final Fighting Championship (UFC) is injecting new lifestyle into its 115-pound division, thanks to a model new agreement with the moment-crushed strawweight sensation Luana Pinheiro. But the Brazilian may possibly not have ever made it to Dana White’s “Contender Series” previous Tuesday night experienced she not developed up watching previous women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey, who served as an inspiration.
“I wanna demonstrate how my judo can be made use of in MMA, and I want to conquer what she conquered in MMA,” Pinheiro told MMA Junkie. “I also want to be an illustration and a determination for new women like me who are starting up in MMA because if I’m below now, it’s due to the fact I saw Ronda Rousey battle and give me motivation for getting in this way.”
Pinheiro (8-1) has now captured 6 straight wins with her very last two victories ending by way of knockout. Not terrible for a combatant who’s identified for her judo. The 26 12 months-old strawweight is envisioned to make her Octagon debut at some stage in first-quarter 2021.
