The UFC Vegas 40 tournament will feature a classic grappler and women’s lightweight striker clash, where Brazilian Mayra Bueno is set to end Manon Fiorot’s hot line.
In a recent interview Super battles, Bueno, has announced that the MMA world is planning to win by knockout over a dangerous French striker. Although the 30-year-old knows it could be a risky decision, Sheetara want to show UFC president Dana White an impressive game and get rid of the losing streak on the previous trip.
“It doesn’t matter how it is. I’m going to put on a great show. I feel like I want to be a KO winner this time. He’s going to taste his medicine. I’m very happy with this fight. We can control the results. we can’t, we can only control what we do. “
“This time I worked hard,” he continued. “I’m in a good mood and I guarantee my Saturday fight will be a very show. I remember in my fight with Montana (De La Rosa) Dana White greeted me with applause. If she’s there again, she’ll give me another one. ».
The fight against Fiorot was originally scheduled for UFC 266, but unfortunately the fight was postponed to the UFC Vegas 40 card due to COVID-19 protocols. Bueno said she had to lose weight twice in a short amount of time, which was the hardest part of the re-booking process. However, the Brazilian feels confident in the pre-fight training camp.
“We had a great camp, we were ready for UFC 266. The downside was that I lost weight twice because I don’t tend to lose a lot of weight in the sauna. Usually, I lose weight when I’m on a diet. That’s it. it was Wednesday morning when I heard the news and I was almost overweight. It was heavy, losing weight twice was bad, but besides I was all good. Of course we wanted to fight in UFC 266, this is a big stage, but God’s plans are greater than mine. I rejoice in it. “
In addition to the final draw, Bueno (7-1-1) defeated Mara Romero Borella in September 2020. The only professional loss of the 30-year-old took place in March 2020, when he unanimously decided to Merina Moroz. .
The two women are scheduled to meet on October 16 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, UFC Vegas 40. The card title will be in the lightweight division between Aspen Ladd and Norma Dumont.
