Claudia Gadelha is a professional mixed martial artist and one of the most accomplished women in UFC. Born in Brazil, she began training Brazilian jiu-jitsu at the age of seventeen and quickly developed an affinity for the sport. She honed her skills in various competitions before joining Team Nogueira, which led to her first fight with Shooto Brasil in 2009. After a successful stint with Shooto Brasil, she signed with Invicta Fighting Championships where she rose to become their Strawweight Champion.

In 2013 Claudia joined forces with The Ultimate Fighter: A Champion Will be Crowned as one of sixteen fighters vying for the title of “Ultimate Fighter” by winning two fights against Julianna Peña and Jessica Penne. Despite losing to Carla Esparza during the finale round, Claudia was widely considered to have been robbed due to controversial judging decisions made by Dana White himself.

In 2015 Claudia officially entered into UFC’s strawweight division and went on an historic run that saw her win four straight fights culminating in a title shot against Joanna Jędrzejczyk at UFC 212 for the Strawweight Championship belt; however despite putting up a strong performance Gadelha eventually lost out by split decision after five hard fought rounds much to fans disappointment who felt like justice had not been served yet again due poor judging decisions made towards Gadelha’s favor this time around too.

Despite coming second best during that bout, this did not stop Gadelha from continuing on as one of MMA’s top strawweights having gone on three more winning streaks since then pushing her total record on paper up to 21 wins 4 losses making her one of only six female fighters currently signed onto UFC’s roster whose records can boast such impressive stats. Moreover while it has been some time since we last witnessed Claudia enter into the octagon last year (2020), there are promising signs that we could see Gadelha return very soon given recent news reports suggesting that both parties have already come close agreement about terms over what would be likely a lucrative deal for Claudias services moving forward – should all go according well expect fireworks when Claudia eventually steps back inside octagon next!
