Gadelha Reveals Her Fight Week Butt Evolution

UFC strawweight contender Claudia Gadelha revealed an unflattering nickname she has been given by her team.

On the latest episode of the UFC 212 Embedded: Vlog Series, Gadelha said she has received the nickname ‘pigeon a**’ because of the way she looks after cutting weight.

“Usually when I’m losing weight, the first thing I lose is my (expletive). So I always say I get a pigeon (expletive),” Gadelha said. “Because my butt gets smaller. It’s the first thing to go.”

At UFC 212, Gadelha will fight fellow strawweight contender Karolina Kowalkiewicz in the co-main event.

Gadelha and Kowalkiewicz are among the very best 115-pound fighters in the world. Both women have been near perfect in their MMA careers. Both fighters have only lost to UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk.

UFC 212 takes place June 3 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The final episode of the UFC 212 Embedded series can be watched below.
