By C.J. Tuttle Aug 5, 2014
The UFC women's strawweight division officially grew to five on Tuesday with the news that Kailin Curran had signed with the Las Vegas-based promotion.

Curran announced the news on her Twitter account, and a profile was quickly created on the UFC.com. Curran joins a group of fighters that currently include: Joanna Jedrzejczyk, Tina Lahdemaki, Juliana de Lima Carneiro and Claudia Gadelha.

"It's official next stop UFC for me," Curran wrote. "Mahalo for all the support."

The 23-year-old Ewa Beach, Hawaii, native becomes the first-ever female from the state to join the Zuffa ranks.

Her three pro fights -- all unanimous decision wins -- were held at University of Guam Fieldhouse in Mangilao, Guam under the Pacific Xtreme Combat promotion banner. Curran currently trains at Reign MMA in Lake Forest, Calif.
