Tracy Cortez vs. Amanda Ribas, flyweight bout | This Saturday, UFC Orlando Prelims | 7pm EST, LIVE on ESPN+

Read Time:1 Minute, 15 Second

This Saturday’s UFC Orlando event features an exciting flyweight fight on the prelims between top-fifteen ranked contenders Tracy Cortez and Amanda Ribas.

Cortez has gone 4-0 since signing with the UFC.


Cortez (10-1-0) is ranked number thirteen in the UFC’s official flyweight contender rankings. Currently riding high on a ten-fight win streak and a 4-0 UFC run, Cortez believes she has what it takes to make a run for the title in 2023. The 28-year-old owns promotional victories over Melissa Gatto, Justine Kish, Stephanie Egger, and Vanessa Melo. She hopes a dominant win over Ribas will earn her a shot at a top-ten opponent early next year.

Ribas lost a razor close split decision to Katlyn Chookagian earlier this year.


Ribas (11-3-0) made her flyweight debut this past May, losing a very controversial split decision to the then-number-one ranked contender Katlyn Chookagian. Despite the defeat, taking such a high-ranked contender to a close decision in her divisional debut clearly shows what Ribas is capable of in this weight class. The 29-year-old learned a lot from that fight and now looks to make another run at the 125-pound championship, starting with Tracy Cortez this Saturday.

UFC Fight Night Orlando takes place this Saturday, December 3, 2022, from the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida, United States. The preliminary card, featuring Cortez VS Ribas, will be aired live on ESPN+ from 7 pm ET.
