The battle between Rodrigues and interim World Champion Todd should produce similar fireworks, with both women eager to stamp their dominance on the 115lbs Muay Thai division.

Rodrigues hasn’t appeared in the Circle since then, as she took time away from her career to give birth and raise her son, Josue.

But the Phuket Fight Club athlete hasn’t taken her responsibility as a World Champion lightly during her time away. Even during pregnancy, the 24-year-old continued to sharpen her weapons back home in Brazil.

Meanwhile, her future opponent Todd was gaining momentum in the Atomweight Muay Thai division after claiming the ONE Atomweight Kickboxing World Title in 2020.

She earned two wins to score a shot at the interim gold, and when she faced Spain’s Lara Fernandez in the World Title tussle this past July, the American took full advantage.
