Tasked with returning to the winner’s enclosure for the first time in her five-fight UFC run, fan favourite grappler, Amanda Ribas has sights set on attempting that feat against one-time scheduled foe, Michelle Waterson.
Dropping her first promotional loss, the 27-year-old was wobbled on the feet by Rodriguez — who wheeled away in celebration, before referee Herb Dean waved her back to action detailing how he had yet to stop the fight. Finding herself on the wrong end of another combination, Ribas was eventually stopped by Rodriguez at the second time of asking. The second round knockout loss marked the snapping of a five-fight winning run.
Returning to the strawweight limit of 115-pounds for the clash, Ribas seems to have sights fixed on an outing at the weight next — posting on her official Twitter account this afternoon, asking Waterson if she would be interested in rescheduling their shelved pairing.
