Silvania “Leoa” Monteiro returns to action at the Aspera FC 57 event on September 9, WMMA Rankings can confirm. Her opponent is yet to be announced.
30-year-old Silvania Monteiro (7-2-0) trains at the Wade de li Riva gym and fights out of Florianopolis, Santa Catarina, Brazil. She is one of the top emerging prospects in the 105-pound atomweight division, currently ranked at number-ten in the WMMA world rankings. She is a known fast finisher, finishing six of her seven career victories in the very first round by way of submissions and knockouts. Her two career losses were against women who now compete in higher weight classes, which shows the size disadvantage that Monteiro was at.
Despite competing in the smallest weight-class in MMA, the talented Brazilian certainly has some power. In Monteiro’s last showing, she knocked out Indianara Machado in the very first round. Take a look in the video below.
