Denise Gomes Kielholtz has established herself as one of the top female fighters in the Ultimate Fighting Championship. She is a Brazilian born fighter who currently competes in the flyweight division of UFC.

Kielholtz was born and raised in Rio de Janeiro on August 9th, 1990. Her mother immigrated to Brazil from Poland while her father was Brazilian-born with Dutch roots. She first started practicing Judo at a young age, eventually becoming part of the national team under legendary coach Murilo Bustamante. As she progressed into adulthood, Denise decided to try out different martial arts and ended up competing professionally in Mixed Martial Arts (MMA).

In 2018, she made her professional MMA debut and quickly began building an impressive record with six consecutive wins over notable opponents including Celine Haga and Janaisa Morandin. In 2020, Kielholtz signed a multi-fight contract with UFC where she made her promotional debut against Maryna Moroz at UFC Fight Night 187. She stunned fans by winning that fight via first round submission, solidifying her place as one of the most exciting new prospects of women’s MMA today.

Since then Denise has gone on to win three more fights in UFC over Ji Yeon Kim, Jessica Rose Clark and Lucie Pudilova respectively; all via dominating performances showcasing both technical excellence and immense heart inside the cage which earned her “Performance Of The Night” honors at each respective fight night event – something no other female fighter had done before! With those four impressive victories since joining UFC roster alone (not counting previous successes outside it), Denise is considered among many experts to be a genuine contender for future championship opportunities within women’s flyweight division for years to come – making great strides towards bringing awareness about gender equality issues in combat sports around world as well along way too!

Outside cage however – despite this hard hitting businesswoman persona inside – is known for being kind hearted individual off work too; full time mom dedicating much free time involving charity events such as helping raise money orphanages or simply putting smile kids faces when possible too! Always living true motto ‘Champion Hearts Before Championships Belts’ throughout career thus far – inspiring next generation by serving role model especially amongst minorities growing up poor due dedication towards achieving dreams untold!

Having highly successful stint thus far – there still plenty left yet do where sky limits only horizon inner strength character strong enough shatter them like never before keeping eyes focused bright light success further end tunnel; leaving foot prints greatness others follow hopefully better tomorrow after all…
