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.

She has been planning to fight MMA for about 2 years now.

It`s time to stop with the lip service and get busy.

Being a mom is more important than being a fighter. She is not want for money.

This raises an interesting question.. What if a woman doesn't know she's pregnant when going into a fight? Surely this must happen occasionally.. I can't think say, a month old foetus, would survive even 30 seconds. Any takedown or significant body strike would be potentially fatal Phone Post 3.0

In Invicta they make every chick take a pregnancy test at the weigh ins. No joke. Phone Post 3.0

I didn't look deep enough to find if his daughter is with Charlotte or another woman. I just know he is not with her mother now.

I dunno, I don't think it's going to be much to look at after that little Gracie comes berimboloing his way out of it.

Damn! Congrats for her.

No more photos like this for a while, I guess. :/

I coached high school wrestling and during freestyle season one of the girls competed in a state tournament while pregnant. She wrestled 4 times over two days. Kid turned out alright. I know it's not the same thing but it worried me too. Kid loves watching wrestling now too. Phone Post 3.0

Shouldn't they be taking them before potential weight cuts? Throughout camp, similar to a drug test, as well as at weigh in?
