In a groundbreaking move, Brazilian jiu-jitsu icon Bia Mesquita is gearing up for her highly anticipated MMA debut on June 15 in Sao Paulo, Brazil. Mesquita, renowned for her unparalleled success in the world of jiu-jitsu, is set to step into the cage against Jorgina Ramos in a bantamweight showdown at Spaten Fight Night.

With multiple world titles to her name, including two in the absolute division, Mesquita has etched her name in the annals of jiu-jitsu history. Her accolades extend beyond the IBJJF circuit, encompassing triumphs at prestigious tournaments such as the Pan-American and European championships, as well as securing major titles in Abu Dhabi.

Mesquita's journey to the MMA stage has been marked by determination and grit. Following her induction into the IBJJF Hall of Fame, she made the pivotal decision to join forces with American Top Team in Florida, signaling her intent to conquer new horizons. Her transition gained momentum after a spectacular victory over former UFC champion Miesha Tate in a grappling match in December 2022, showcasing her prowess and adaptability.

The upcoming bout against Jorgina Ramos serves as a pivotal moment in Mesquita's career, as she looks to translate her mastery of jiu-jitsu into the unforgiving landscape of mixed martial arts. Ramos, armed with her own arsenal of skills and experiences, promises to provide a formidable challenge for Mesquita in the cage.

Spaten Fight Night promises to be an electrifying event, with Mesquita's debut adding an extra layer of excitement to an already stacked card. Headlined by a riveting boxing clash between Anderson Silva and Chael Sonnen, the event will also feature the debut of Silva's son Kalyl Silva and the presence of 2020 Olympic gold medalist Hebert Conceição.

With the spotlight firmly fixed on her, Mesquita stands poised to make an indelible mark in the realm of MMA.
