Kyra Gracie hopes for UFC career after pregnancy


In devastating news for the UG, Kyra Gracie is pregnant. Your competition is Brazilian actor Malvino Salvador.

"Come at me bro."

The good news is, she still aims to fight in the UFC.

Guilherme Cruz has the story for MMAFighting.

"I’m pregnant, so I won’t be able to compete this year," said Kyra. "I’ve accomplished all my goals in jiu-jitsu. Competing at the Mundial or ADCC is not in my plans. I only visualize the possibility of returning to jiu-jitsu in a superfight."

"My will to fight MMA is bigger than returning to jiujitsu competition. That would demand more dedication that I will be able to have in the next months. My only concern now is with my child, a new Gracie to the family."

"Fighting will never leave my plans. The natural path is to fight in smaller promotions, gain experience and then enter the UFC. That’s how I would like it to be."

"Many athletes become mothers and can return to competition in the highest level. I will stay focused on my child for a while because I want to enjoy the pregnancy as much as I can. Even away from the hard training in MMA and jiu-jitsu for a while, I will do my best to maintain my pregnancy with the welfare of an athlete.

"I will continue with physical activities and good nutrition, it will certainly help me to return as soon as possible. Like all women in any profession, I will live the life of a mother and the life of a fighter. I just need some time to adjust it."

And now a gallery of Kyra the athlete.

Even ammy fighters take tests at weigh-ins now. Except my first ammy fight the doc just asked me if I was pregnant, and then said, "How do you know?" to my response. Maybe that incident was a few years ago?

Does anyone know the story of what happened to her with Olympic Judo? Did she ever try to compete in judo, even on a local level?

Man, I really thought I knocked this one out of the park. Is it because Gracies don't really berimbolo?
