She was scheduled to fight against Taila Santos in the XFCi 8 in one of the semifinals, but Taila didn't make weight and Poliana advanced to the tournament ifinals against Antonia Silvaneide in the XFCi 9, and won by first round knockout, becaming the XFC Women's Flyweight Tournament Winner. 

 
After a lot of requests by Botelho, XFC scheduled her in the main event against Argentina's Silvana Juarez in the XFCi 11 for the XFC Women's Flyweight Title. The fight was incredible, Poliana was dropped in the third round and almost got submited, but she came stronger in the 4th round with some impressive kicks and won by doctor stopage at the end of the 4th round, becoming the XFC Women's Flyweight Champion of the World.
