UFC Adds Unbeaten Prospect To Female Division

The UFC has added unbeaten bantamweight Bethe Correia to the female division, according to a report by Tatame.

Correia announced her signing via Facebook, but officials have yet to say anything.

Correia (6-0) turned pro in May of last year, winning five of her six fights via decision. She has yet to compete outside of Brazil.

Her most recent win, though, likely caught the attention of the brass, as Correia finished Erica Paes in June. Paes was the last woman to defeat Cris Cyborg, submitting her in 2005.

Correia is a training partner of Patricio and Patricky Freire, members of the Bellator roster.
