Former UFC Strawweight Title Challenger Claudia Gadelha Retires
Former UFC strawweight title challenger Claudia Gadelha has notified the UFC that she has decided to retire from MMA competition. After Gadelha spent more time thinking about resuming her career, the UFC offered her a job as a liaison with incoming Brazilian talent. Ana Cláudia Dantas Gadelha was born in 1988 in Mossoró, Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. She celebrates her birthday on December 7, which makes her age 31. Likewise, she has not disclosed the identity of her parents. She came into contact with drugs at a young age, and her parents were forced to move to Natal.
At the age of 14, she started to work out secretly in a gym. One day Gadelha went to an MMA event in Natal where she saw a female fight. At the same event, she met Jair Lourenço, leader of the gym ‘Kimura Nova União‘ in Natal, and he invited her to take a class at the academy. Shortly afterward, by sheer coincidence, her father rented an apartment in the Kimura headquarters, and with that, her relationship with Nova União was cemented.
The match between Claudia Gadelha and Angela Hill ended with Claudia taking the win via split decision. Claudia competes in the women’s Strawweight division of the UFC and is the #6 in the rank. Her mother did not get along with her rebellious character, which, in her opinion, did not fit a girl. Gadelha‘s wish to practice martial arts was also not tolerated by her parents. Later she came into contact with drugs and bad friends, which forced her parents to take her to Natal to keep her away from these influences and finish high school.
