E assim finalizo mais uma etapa da minha vida, ou melhor e assim me reinvento nessa nova etapa em minha vida ! No início todos achavam impossível eu pesar 52,7kg mas com minha equipe médica e nutricional provamos que isso foi possível, fiz 3 lutas e sempre bati o peso até abaixo do limite mas tivemos uma decisão até antes da luta na Argentina, que subiríamos para o peso dos moscas, primeiramente por conta da minha saúde que já estava colocando em risco e que com isso já estava atrapalhando até nos treinamentos, hoje através desse post informo que minha próxima luta será nos moscas categoria até 57 kg e com isso conseguirei lutar mais vezes no ano, sem afetar minha saúde . Voltarei mais forte. Continuem na torcida ---------- _ - - #teambotelho #ufc #ufcargentina #ufcbrasil #pesomosca #pesopalha #ufcbrasil #aguaboa #ylafrut #mks #sicoobcredisudeste #atitudepoint #hotelatlanticobuzios #mercadosaocristovao #betofilo #cdlmuriae #mma #dedicacao #trabalho #riodejaneiro #rio #brasil #lutador

Here is a translation of what Botelho wrote, provided by Google Translate:

“And so I finish another stage of my life, or better and so I reinvent myself in this new stage in my life! At first everyone thought it impossible to weigh 52.7kg but with my medical and nutritional team we proved that it was possible, I did 3 fights and I always hit the weight below the limit but we had a decision until before the fight in Argentina, that we would go up to the weight of flies, primarily because of my health that was already putting at risk and that was already disrupting even in training, today through this post I report that my next fight will be in the category flies up to 57 kg and with this I will be able to fight more often in the year, without affecting my health. I'll come back stronger. Stay in the crowd.”

The fighter has won two of three under the UFC banner, with those victories coming over Pearl Gonzalez and Syuri Kondo.
