Biography
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. At age 18, Gadelha moved to Rio de Janeiro where she celebrated her successes in BJJ and debuted in MMA. In early 2018, Gadelha moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, where she trains at the UFC Performance Institute and Xtreme Couture. They recommended doing her fight camps at 'Nick Catone MMA' in Bricktown, New Jersey under the tutelage of Mark Henry and Ricardo Almeida .
