What are your expectations of the competition to be the new UFC ring girl beside Camila Oliveira?

Expectations are high. I was very happy just to get the call because I follow the work of the Octagon girls. They are beautiful and show the feminine side of the fights. I’m very nervous because my opponent is close friend, but it is what God wants.

Following your win, talk a little bit about your expectations in the UFC.

I want to see amazing fights, give the best of me, and demonstrate the strength of the UFC for the whole world. We will be there representing the feminine side of the UFC. It will be cool to work with the team; it’s like a family.

Who is your favorite fighter?

José Aldo because he is from Manaus. I have a friend who lives there and told me the story of the life of Aldo. He was the first fighter that I watched. I also like Anderson Silva, but I like Aldo more.

Do you follow the fights? If so, with whom?

Yes, I follow. I like going to the pub with my friends to watch. My brother and father are passionate about the sport, so I watch with them too.

  • Didn’t get to see her opponent but think the UFC picked a good ring card girl. Fun personality and gorgeous! She was a bright side to the lackluster fight card and hope they bring her back again for future events. Congrats to Jhenny!
