Suarez defeated Nina Ansaroff via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC 238 on Saturday in Chicago.
ANALYSIS
This started off as a vintage Suarez performance. However, things got a little hairy towards the end. In the first two rounds, she was able to score her normal takedowns, but she struggled to implement her striking from the top position. In the third round, Ansaroff was able to defend the takedowns and got loose with her striking. She landed some hard strikes and clearly won the round. However, Suarez survived and took the decision. According to Shaheen Al-Shatti of The Athletic, Suarez aggravated a neck injury during the first round which resulted in her left arm going numb for the remainder of the bout, which could help explain some of her late troubles. After the event, UFC President Dana White dismissed fellow strawweight Michelle Waterson's claim to a title shot, suggesting Suarez may be next up, depending on the state of her health.
