UFC contender Claudia Gadelha has again posed naked in her quest to promote body positivity to her 1million Instagram followers.

The 32-year-old, who is currently ranked at 7 in the women's pound-for-pound Strawweight rankings, has gained a loyal following online as she aims for UFC glory.

After losing her most recent bout to Yan Xiaonan back in November, Gadelha has posted regular updates of her training hard in order to get back to winning ways.

However, there have been posts that do not involve her career over the past few months, and the latest offering has gained over 50,000 likes in just a day.

While posing naked and showing off her many tattoos, Claudia has sent a message of positivity to her growing number of fans.

The caption reads: “Wear your vulnerability like a crown. Weather it is made of thorns or wildflowers.”

In what is one of her most liked photos from back in December, Claudia sent a message about her career alongside shots of herself both outside and inside the octagon.

She wrote: “When you teach your daughter that her body is only pure untouched you are teaching her that she can be ruined at the hand of man.

“Raise your daughter to know that she owns her body wether it is for a woman, man or anyone to see.

“Teach your daughter that she is a gift so she knows her worth but doesn’t feel shame in share her beauty. Remembering that Beauty comes in so many different forms, just like love, it have so many different languages.

“The beauty of doing whatever the heck makes you happy and seeing people doing their fund instead of being funded is the most attractive thing in the world.

“Other than a beautiful and pure heart, of course. Amen to that?”

    “She wants to fight again and all this other stuff. I’m going to talk to some people and see how long we should wait for her to be able to cut weight again.

    “There’s no hurry. We’re going to do whatever is safe.”
