UFC Fight Night 137 takes place this Saturday September 22 from the Ginásio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The event features an intriguing flyweight match-up on the early preliminary card when Mayra Bueno Silva makes her promotional debut to take on Gillian Robertson.
Bueno Silva (4-0) makes her promotional debut following an impressive showing on DWTNCS Brazil last month, submitting Mayana Souza via Brabo Choke in the very first-round to earn herself a UFC contract. In four fights the 27-year-old has remained undefeated, including three first-round finishes. The Brazilian trains at the Chute Boxe Diego gym in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
Robertson (5-2) is 2-0 since making her UFC debut last December, finishing both her victories by way of submissions. The 23-year-old trains at the American Top Team along with some of the best fighters in the world including Amanda Nunes, Tyron Woodley, Tecia Torres, Colby Colvington and many more. Saturday will give Robertson the opportunity to show the world why she could be the next top star to come out of the gym when she takes on a highly-touted undefeated prospect.
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:
