Strawweight competitor Jaqueline Amorim is without a doubt one of the UFC’s biggest signings of 2022.
Amorim is currently 6-0-0 as a professional MMA fighter and was the reigning LFA strawweight champion just before signing with the UFC. Born in Brazil, Amorim now lives in the United States and trains at the highly-acclaimed American Top Team gym. ‘Jacque’ has finished all her MMA victories within the first round.
The 27-year-old is considered a legend in the world of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ). According to BJJ Heroes, “Amorim is widely recognized as one of the top female competitors of her generation, a reputation earned through important wins at tournaments such as the IBJJF World and No-Gi World Championship as well as UAEJJF’s Abu Dhabi World Pro.”
As well as success in MMA and BJJ competitions, Amorim is also a model and regularly posts the latest images from her photo shoots to her Instagram page. Her next goal, however, is to become the UFC strawweight champion of the world.
Details on Amorim’s UFC debut have yet to be announced. Her signing with the UFC was confirmed this past September by MMA Fighting. Stay tuned for more details.
