Seeking first UFC win in Sao Paulo
FlyweightUFC
August 1, 2019
Cachoeira has been booked to take on Ariane Lipski in a flyweight bout at UFC on ESPN+ 21 on Nov. 16 in Sao Paulo, Nolan King of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Cachoeira's MMA career has taken a sharp downward turn after she started off 8-0. After a loss via unanimous decision back in May to Luana Carolina at UFC 237, she has now dropped each of her first three fights under the UFC banner, and her time with the promotion is certainly in flux. Now, something will have to give come November, as her opponent, Lipski, is also winless since signing with the UFC.

Remains winless in UFC career
FlyweightUFC

Cachoeira lost to Luana Carolina via unanimous decision (26-30, 26-30, 27-29) at UFC 237 on Saturday in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
ANALYSIS
It was a third straight dreadful effort from Cachoeira. She has now proven on multiple occasions that she isn't a UFC-caliber fighter and Saturday was no different. Cachoeira displays shockingly poor defense and a distinct inability to get anything going offensively. Her pure toughness it the only reason this fight saw the final bell. It's going to be difficult for the UFC to run Cachoeira out there again after this performance.

She'll now have a chance to pick up her first victory against Carolina, who will be looking to do the same in her UFC debut.
Falls to 0-2 in UFC
FlyweightUFC
March 16, 2019
Cachoeira lost to Molly McCann via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night in London on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
It's been over a year since Cachoeira was brutally defeated by now-champion Valentina Shevchenko, and little has changed about her ability to take damage. While Cachoeira came out with aggressive striking, it was matched throughout by McCann, who was able to take her down and nearly get an early submission finish. One bright spot to take out of the loss for Cachoeria was her submission defense, as she escaped a head and arm choke, an arm bar and a guillotine attempt. Cachoeira also landed a hard right hook late in the fight that gashed McCann's eye and likely fractured her orbital bone, but it was simply too little, too late. The UFC seemingly owes Cachoeira another chance given the way her career started, but a middling performance against an unranked opponent offers little cause for optimism.
Set to fight at UFC London in March
FlyweightUFC
November 21, 2018
Cachoeira (knee) is slated to fight Molly McCann at UFC London on March 16, Guilherme Cruz and Peter Carroll of MMAFighting.com report.
ANALYSIS
Shortly after suffering the first loss of her MMA career in Belem, Brazil back in February, Cachoeira required surgery to repair the torn meniscus she sustained during the match. "Pedrita" was hopeful to make it back to the Octagon by December, but she'll instead take some additional time to recuperate from surgery make her return from a 13-month absence in London. Cachoeira (8-1) will be facing another fighter looking to bounce back in McCann (7-2), who also lost her UFC debut back in May against Gillian Robertson.
Targeting December return
FlyweightUFC
August 11, 2018
Cachoeira's trainer told Guillherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com that she has resumed training and is hoping for a December return.
ANALYSIS
Cachoeira took an opportunity that proved to be too much, too soon against Valentina Shevchenko, and she ultimately paid the price for it. Shevchenko dealt her a sustained beating over two rounds before finally submitting her via rear-naked choke. Cachoeira absorbed 230 total strikes in that matchup, but part of the reason she was unable to mount a defense may have been the knee injury. Following February surgery, "Pedrita" is now ready to take the next steps in her fighting career. At 8-1, the soon-to-be 30-year-old has plenty of room to grow, provided she's given reasonable opponents to hone her skills against.
