After taking up classes at a local gym with some friends from school, Cheyanne started training regularly and competing in amateur bouts.

In 2012, Cheyanne decided to take her fighting career to the next level by joining InvictaFC’s FlyWeight Division; where she went 2-1 before being signed by UFC later that year. Vlisimas made her promotional debut against Jessica Andrade when they faced each other at UFC Fight Night: Machida vs Rockhold II back in December 2014 – winning via unanimous decision after three rounds of intense action! From then on Cheyanne has gone 5-3 within UFC – secured impressive victories over names such as Leslie Smith & Sarah Kaufman whilst also experiencing losses versus Jessica Eye & Ketlen Vieira (twice).
Throughout this amazing journey so far within MMA competition – Cheyanne has proven herself time & time again that her dedication determination are second to none! Not only does this warrior princess bring excitement whenever stepping inside that Octagon but continues push boundaries outside too; using her platform inspire others whose journeys may have not been easy… With those words of motivation in mind – there seems be no doubt that we will see great things coming from ‘The Warrior Princess’ throughout upcoming months/years come!
