UFC strawweight contender Claudia Gadelha can’t help but go viral whenever some news about her hits the internet. Gadelha has been a favorite with UFC fans for her combination of mixed martial arts skills along with her stunning good looks.
Most recently Gadelha made headlines everywhere after announcing that she would be taking a hiatus from the UFC following her loss to Jessica Andrade in September.
“I haven’t trained in a month, and I’ve started to get crazy.” Gadelha said to the media. “I try not to watch fights, but I can’t [laughs]. I went to watch Poliana’s (Botelho) fight, she’s a friend of mine, and I got all excited again. I said ‘no, I’ll get this off my head [laughs].’ I want to give my head some time, more time for my friends, for the people I love, to my family. I want to enjoy life, collect experiences with the people I love, and I really needed this time.
“I planned my life until February. I’ll travel with my parents. My parents never traveled outside of Brazil, and I’m taking them to the United States now, fulfilling a dream, and I’ll enjoy life for a bit until February, and then I’ll come back.”
Her absence from the octagon hasn’t stopped her from going insanely viral though. Check out the newest photo of Claudia Gadelha that’s making the rounds.
