Biography

When and why did you start training for fighting?A BJJ black belt in Rio de Janeiro once told me that I couldn't beat one of his students in a fight even though I never trained anything before, so with that challenge I started training BJJ to face her and ended up beating her. After five years focusing on BJJ and getting my black belt, I transitioned to MMA because my husband and BJJ trainer was starting as a MMA trainer three years ago and I saw it as an opportunity to help him get his name bigger in the sport.
