The hottest Amanda Ribas-ranked 10th in the women’s lightweight women-hoping to maintain his perfect record in the Octagon team (4-0), but sacrificed the sixth seed Marina Rodri Gus (Marina Rodriguez), when Michelle (Michelle) stepped up to challenge Watson for undisclosed reasons to withdraw from the pay-per-view (PPV) incident. After undefeated lightweight racer Ottman Azaitar made the stupidest mistake, their 115-pound showdown was promoted to the UFC 257 PPV main card, which was held at Ethiad Arena in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
Ribas took control of the action as early as possible, but in less than a minute in the second quarter, Rodriguez had a bright spot and ended the game.
The ground expert Ribas put pressure on the strike expert Rodriguez, hoping that he would be able to get closer and avoid big blows. Ribas continued to chase Rodriguez as early as possible, kicking and trying to cut down the cage to trap her. About 90 seconds later, Ribas was successful, Rodriguez defended from her side for a solid minute, after which Ribas finally entered her closed guard. Ribas tried to rain heavily, but Rodriguez did a good job and fixed his head to his chest. Rodriguez tried to step on the fence in order to manage to stand up, but Ribas was able to keep her in the correct posture, close to the center of the octagon. Ribas put down a nice elbow and some short punches, and Rodriguez was satisfied that he only locked a body triangle from the bottom and then slid through the open frame.
Dean seemed to touch Rodriguez in the initial onslaught, which is why she might walk away. Either way, it doesn’t matter, Rodriguez has won a huge victory for a turbulent newcomer, and her future remains bright.
