Taila Santos is a fighter that has been with the UFC close to two years, that thanks to multiple fight cancellations, has only graced the octagon two time.

Santos won a contract on the Contender Series in 2018 with her unanimous decision win over Estefani Almedia.

Santos hasn’t had a finish since before she was on the Contender Series, but her nine first round KO/TKO finishes are still impressive nonetheless. Taila can be absolutely lethal with her striking and has finished four of her opponents inside of 87 seconds while as a pro in MMA. Taila’s has good striking and lots of weapons to look out for, as she has multiple head kick finishes, but is also well versed with her fists.
