Claudia Gadelha, Viviane Pereira Earn Big Victories At UFC 212 In Rio

Posted: June 4, 2017 in Uncategorized


Brazilian jiu-jitsu ace Claudia “Claudinha” Gadelha solidified her spot as the second-best female strawweight in MMA with a quick and impressive victory tonight at UFC 212: “Aldo vs Holloway” in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Gadelha submitted Karolina Kowalkiewicz with a first round rear-naked choke.

With tonight’s co-main event victory, Gadelha may have earned another shot at the UFC Women’s Strawweight Championship that is held by rival Joanna Jędrzejczyk. Also on the card, Viviane “Sucuri” Pereira stayed unbeaten with a decision win over fellow prospect Jamie Moyle at 115 pounds.
