10 Greatest LGBTQ Fighters In UFC History

10. Renata Livia Souza

Holding down the number ten spot is a dangerous submission specialist by the name of Renata Livia Souza.

The UFC strawweight is a Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt with an impressive 13-2 professional record, who has managed to finish ten of her opponents. 'The Brazilian Gangster' first made a name for herself in the all-female promotion, Invicta FC, where she became strawweight champ.

This talented LGBTQ athlete holds victories over Deanna Bennett, Katja Kankaanpaa, and Alex Chambers. Souza made her UFC debut back in September of 2018 and is 2-1 since signing with the world's most recognized promotion.

At just 28 years of age, the former Invicta titleholder has already accomplished a great deal. That being said, Souza is a proven finisher who is poised to build on her impressive résumé in the coming years.
