UFC has signed women’s flyweight prospect Poliana Botelho, a fighter out of the Nova Uniao gym in Brazil.

“Today I’m climbing another step in my career to achieve my biggest goal,” Botelho posted on her Facebook page this week. “I have no word to describe my happiness in becoming a UFC athlete.”

Botelho, 27, is a 5-1 fighter with all five of her wins coming by way of knockout. Last September, she knocked out Silvana Gomez to become the new XFC International Flyweight Champion.
