Born in Montevideo, Uruguay South America, athletics became Claudia's calling at an early age. As young as age 6 Claudia turned to skating to help with leg problems and today has legs of steel. At the age of 18 Claudia got into the world of modeling. Starting out as a runway model she didn't like the slim look and soon sculpted her body into a more curvy and muscular physique. The fitness world soon led to paths in martial arts and continued success in the modeling world.
Today Claudia trains in the martial arts of kick boxing, boxing and muay thai. She has modeled for several MMA promotions and websites including Noble Savage, Razorback, Landmark Media and been featured in countless MMA magazines and websites including Total Fight, Pro MMA Now, and TV Combate Total. Claudia also works on the other side of the cage as a reporter and interviewer most notably for MMA Fighting Tips. Some of her favorite MMA fighters include Jose Aldo, Mauricio Shogun Rua, Jon Bones Jones, Dan Henderson, Chael Sonnen, Luke Rockhold and Urijah Faber.
Multi-talented Claudia is also active in many other areas as well. At 16 she started fashion designing which led to studies in communications at her local university for three years and two years of graphic design at Bios University. Her fashion sense and athletic physique led to bikini modeling and personal training. Claudia has also done extensive modeling for fitness clothes, lingerie and countless print and online shoots. She is also a writer, translator and gogo dancer.
