Mixed martial arts careerEdit
Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit
In 2017, Faria was set to make her UFC at UFC 216 against Andrea Lee, however as Lee had previously failed a drugs test, USADA required her to be in the testing pool six months before competing, causing her to pull out. Lee was replace by fellow promotional newcomer Mara Romero Borella who submitted Faria in the first round.
