Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Jungle Fight[edit]

In her lone fight with Brazilian mixed martial arts promotion Jungle Fight, Aldana faced Larissa Pacheco for the vacant JF Women's Bantamweight Championship at JF: Jungle Fight 63 on December 21, 2013. She lost the fight via third-round TKO, giving her the first loss of her professional career.[6]

Invicta Fighting Championships[edit]

Aldana signed with Invicta FC in mid-2014, and made her debut against Peggy Morgan at Invicta FC 8: Waterson vs. Tamada on September 9, 2014, submitting Morgan with a rear-naked choke in the first round.[7]

She was then expected to face Marion Reneau at Invicta FC 10: Waterson vs. Tiburcio on December 5, 2014, but Aldana was forced out of the bout due to an illness and the fight was taken off the card.[8][9]

Aldana was scheduled to face Melanie LaCroix at Invicta FC 11: Cyborg vs. Tweet on February 27, 2015, however, LaCroix withdrew from the bout for undisclosed reasons and was replaced by promotional newcomer Colleen Schneider.[10][11] She won the fight via first round rear-naked choke.[12][13]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

On November 6, 2016, it was announced that Aldana was signed to the UFC and will face Leslie Smith on December 17, 2016 at UFC on Fox 22.[14] She lost the fight by unanimous decision. Despite the loss, the bout earned Aldana her first Fight of the Night bonus award in the UFC.[15]

Aldana faced Talita Bernardo on January 14, 2018 at UFC Fight Night: Stephens vs. Choi.[16] She won the fight via unanimous decision.[17]

Aldana was scheduled to face Bethe Correia on August 4, 2018, at UFC 227;[18] however, the bout was pulled when Correia withdrew due to injury.[19] Instead, Aldana faced Lucie Pudilová on September 8, 2018, at UFC 228,[20] winning a close fight via split decision[21] and earning her and Pudilova Fight of the Night award.[22]
