Silva is scheduled to face Poliana Botelho in a flyweight fight at the UFC's May 1 event, Farah Hannoun of USA Today reports.
ANALYSIS
Silva was added to the May 1 card as a replacement for Ji Yeon Kim, who withdrew Monday for unspecified reasons. The 29-year-old Brazilian will look to keep the momentum going against Botelho after fighting Montana De La Rosa to a majority draw in her last trip to the Octagon on Feb. 27.

Bueno Silva and Montana De La Rosa fought to a majority draw (28-27, 28-28, 28-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
In other words, Bueno Silva would have won this fight had she not been docked a point for grabbing the fence to avoid a takedown in Round 1. De La Rosa clearly won Round 2 before the Brazilian took Round 3, so the first frame truly was the decider in this one. Bueno Silva certainly appeared to be the more competent striker in this battle of submission specialists, but like De La Rosa, she too struggles when forced to stand and trade with her opposition for any significant length of time. A product of Dana White's Contender Series Brazil, Bueno Silva is now 2-1-1 in her first four UFC bouts, with the two wins coming via submission. She will have to show something on the feet before she can be considered any sort of legitimate threat.

Bueno Silva (illness) will face Montana De La Rosa in a flyweight matchup on Feb. 27, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Bueno Silva tested positive for COVID-19 in November but is evidently expected to have enough time to get back into fighting shape by late February. She'll be looking to improve her UFC record to 3-1, having sandwiched a unanimous decision loss with a pair of first-round submission victories. De La Rosa will be looking to bounce back from a unanimous decision loss to Viviane Araujo to improve her UFC record to 5-2.

Silva recently tested positive for COVID-19, Guilherme Cruz and Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
The news of Silva's positive test was relayed by her girlfriend, Gloria de Paula, a competitor on Dana White's Contender Series who was forced to withdraw from her fight Tuesday with Pauline Macias after a positive COVID-19 test of her own. Silva last fought in September, defeating Mara Romero Borella via submission. Assuming Silva doesn't have too many complications with her recovery, she should be ready to return to the Octagon later this year or early in 2021.
Easily submits Mara Borella

September 19, 2020
Bueno Silva defeated Mara Romero Borella via submission (armbar) at 2:29 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It was an excellent bounce-back effort form Bueno Silva on the heels of her surprising unanimous decision loss to Maryna Moroz this past March. Facing an opponent who has been unable to get out of her own way for the past couple years, Bueno Silva -- a BJJ wizard -- quickly and easily tapped Romero Borella out with an armbar after the two women found themselves in a ground exchange early in the fight. The Brazilian's ground game alone makes her an intriguing fighter to watch, but Bueno Silva would be a bit more interesting if she offered some resistance on the feet here and there.
