This Saturday’s UFC 237 features an exciting women’s flyweight bout on the early preliminary card when Luana Carolina makes her promotional debut to take on Priscila Cachoeira.
Carolina (5-1) makes her first UFC appearance after defeating Mabelly Lima on an episode of Dana White’s Contender Series Brazil last September to earn herself a contract. The 25-year-old’s sole career loss came in her professional debut, since then she has been on a five-fight win streak which includes two first-round knockout victories.
Cachoeira (8-2) looks to pick up her first UFC victory after suffering back-to-back defeats to Valentina Shevchenko and Molly McCann. The 30-year-old, also known as ‘Pedrita’, is a training partner of Jessica Andrade and believes on Saturday she will finally show the MMA fans what she is capable of.
UFC 237 takes place this Saturday May 11 2019 from the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The early preliminary card featuring Carolina vs. Cachoeira will be aired live on UFC Fight Pass from 6:15pm EST.
