Poliana Botelho is a Muay Thai specialist. Botelho has some very strong body kicks, with two of her finishes coming via the strike. Poliana’s sole UFC finish against Syuri Kondo, in 2018, came just 33 seconds into the first round and truly put on full display just how powerful her striking is. Botelho has some vicious striking but her body kicks are especially something to watch out for.

Botelho has a 75% win finishing rate and will look to add another finish to her record on October 17 at UFC Fight Island 6.
