According to UFC fighter Johnny Eduardo, his girlfriend and mixed martial artist Vanessa Melo fought while she was pregnant in Finland, according to Bleacher Report.
While other athletes have competed while pregnant -- tennis star Serena Williams won her 23rd Grand Slam championship while pregnant -- given the violence of mixed martial arts, fighting while pregnant is far less than ideal.
"She had no idea she was pregnant. If I knew it, I wouldn’t ... let her do it. That’s crazy [laughs]," said Eduardo.
Vanessa Melo and her child are both reportedly unharmed.
Melo lost the fight in Finland, losing a split decision and dropping to a record of five wins and five losses.
