On Saturday night, the UFC made its return to Miami, Florida, for the first time in 20 years, and several fighters have made their way to the city to enjoy paradise

Gadelha, who retired in 2020, is still working with the UFC helping develop young athletes from Brazil to understand MMA.

“I’ll work with several talents,” Gadelha said. “But I want to work hard, the same way I worked as an athlete, to help [fighters] in Brazil develop and understand things in the sport that aren’t very clear — and how to use the UFC to their advantage, and not the other way around.

“Many people think they are against us, that there’s an inner circle there, when the reality is the promotion wants you to develop. I’ll focus on this mission of showing people that, helping people, being at events and being always around to help with everything they need.”

Despite retiring nearly three years ago, Gadelha is still in tremendous shape.

Before UFC 287, Gadelha filmed herself working out in Miami Beach with some words of inspiration.

“If you’re waiting for the ideal moment to start working on a project, begin a new habit, or pursue your dreams, I encourage you to take the first step today. Don’t wait any longer for the perfect conditions because they will never come.”
