Ex-UFC star Pearl Gonzalez is one of the most memorable mixed martial artists of her generation.
While her UFC run, specifically, was a bit brief – it left quite the impression.
In her first bout with the promotion Gonzalez faced off against Cynthia Calvillo. Although she ended up losing that one by submission, it came against a foe who – at the time – folks were hyping up as a possible future title contender.
After that one Gonzalez fell to Poliana Botelho by way of unanimous decision. That would be her last match in the UFC.
In the years that followed Gonzalez fought for Invicta Fighting Championships – ultimately going 4-2 in her post-UFC run.
From there she moved on to bare-knuckle boxing.
Aside from her various combat experience, though – Gonzalez is also known and loved by fans for her active social media posting cycle. This week she set the internet ablaze once more with a TikTok that showed off her morning routine:
@pearl_gonzalezNot me again waking up sexy and full of happiness 🤪 GM My Loves! ✨😋🥑🥙♬ Girl You Know Its True Milli Vanilli Showmusik Rmx – Showmusik Sounds
Fans loved it.
“Gorgeous,” one person wrote.
“Whoever gets to wake up next to you is lucky,” another fan added.
“Beautiful,” a third fan chipped in.
Gonzalez has turned into the kind of social media personality where, any time she posts anything, it becomes front page news.
This was just the latest example of that.
Gonzalez’s fighting future is currently in doubt. She expressed a certain disinterest in continuing bare knuckle boxing, so it is unclear where she goes from here as a combat sport athlete.

But even if she chooses to hang up her gloves for good, her legacy is secure.
Without even trying, Gonzalez is one of the most popular female fighters around.
No matter what she chooses to do from this point forward, it will undoubtedly be a success.
