The world of combat sports--despite all the battle scars and injuries--never runs low on supply of hotties.

ne sizzling example is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt Kyra Gracie, the first female member of the fighting clan of the Gracies (who developed and popularized BJJ) to not only become a multiple title holder in the sport but also to make BJJ and Mixed Martial Arts as her full-time career.
Despite her manifest yumminess, distractingly lovely "V-line," and well-toned femininity, Kyra is far from your typical pin-up girl. She's a hottie with a black belt and a crazy fight record! At 23 (her birthday is 29 May 1985), she already has an impressive list of credentials:

1. Three-time World BJJ Champion (2008, 2006, 2004).

2. Five-time Pan-American BJJ Games Champion (2007, 2005, 2003, 2002, 2001).
3. Five-time Brazilian BJJ Champion (2004, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1998).
4. Five-time New York State BJJ Champion (2002, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1998). 

5. Two-time Abu Dhabi Combat Club Submission Wrestling World Champion (2007, 2005).

6. One-time Asiatic BJJ Champion (2006).

She currently lives in New York, where she teaches BJJ for women on her uncle
Renzo Gracie's gym. She also maintains her own start-up gym, which is affiliated with her uncle's and also with the Gracie Barra Academy.
Speaking of Gracie Barra Academy, it has a branch/chapter in the Philippines, particularly in Metro Manila. It's being headed by Alvin Aguilar, one of the first Filipino BJJ black belts in the country and founder-promoter of local MMA event Universal Reality Combat Championship.

speaks fluent English, stands 5'7" (bad news for guys 5'6" and below), and has a (more bad news) boyfriend--Marcio Feitosa (lucky bastard)--who is also a (still more bad news) champion in many international BJJ events.
