The Ultimate Fighting Championship is expanding its number of athletes coming from Romania.
Diana Belbita (11-4) is the latest fighter to sign with the Nevada-based promotion after her fellow countryman Nicolae Negumereanu made his debut a little more than a month ago. Her manager, Nima Safapour, announced the signing on social media on Tuesday morning, welcoming her “to the big leagues.”
Belbita fought for a long time under the Real Xtreme Fighting banner, where she lost only to former UFC fighter Cristina Stanciu. “The Warrior Princess” is coming off a two-bout winning streak, with both victories coming inside the distance. At RFX 29, she smashed the up-and-coming Greek fighter Cristina Netza, while at RFX 29 she submitted Ana Maria Pal. Additionally, she has never lost via KO or TKO in her career, but she has suffered three losses via submission and one via decision.
Belbita will fight in the UFC women’s flyweight division, although at the moment her debut date has still to be set. She becomes now the second woman fighter from Romania ever to join the UFC after the short stint of Stanciu.
