UFC Fight Night 137 takes place this Saturday September 22 from the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
This event features an exciting strawweight fight on the early preliminary card when Livinha Souza makes her promotional debut to battle Alex Chambers.
Souza (11-1) is a very familiar face to international MMA fans thanks to her success with Invicta FC which notably saw her capture the organization’s strawweight title back in 2015. The powerful 27-year-old owns vicious stoppages over the likes of Ayaka Hamasaki, DeAnna Bennett and Katja Kankaanpaa. She now looks to have the same success in the UFC and eventually make her claim for a shot at the belt.
Chambers (5-4) makes her fifth appearance for the UFC and is hoping to rebound from a two-fight losing streak after dropping bouts to Paige VanZant and Nadia Kassem. The 39-year-old feels as though she has made significant improvements since her last showing and hopes to prove it against a highly-touted prospect in the 115-pound division.
Ahead of Saturday’s event, both women have successfully made weight and engaged in a final face off at the official UFC Sau Paulo ceremonial weigh-ins. Take a look at the staredown in the video below, courtesy of ReactQ:
