Mayra Bueno Silva

Cheetara

Brazil

Can't find range in defeat
FlyweightUFC
October 16, 2021
Bueno Silva lost to Manon Fiorot via unanimous decision (26-30, 27-30, 27-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
It's debatable as to whether or not there should have been a 10-8 score in there, but Bueno Silva was overwhelmed from the very start and was never able to get on track. She apparently hesitant to let her hands go due to the significant speed and power edge Fiorot possessed, and that led to Bueno Silva attempting just 156 total strikes compared to 291 from her opponent (unofficially). Bueno Silva is primarily a mat specialist, and she's going to be in for a long night if forced to stand and trade for any significant length of time. This was a perfect example of that. The Brazilian is now 2-2-1 in her first five UFC bouts.

Bueno Silva's fight against Manon Fiorot has been postponed to October 16 due to COVID-19 protocols, Evy Rodrigues of Globo Las Vegas reports.
ANALYSIS
It wasn't clear which side had the COVID issues, but nevertheless the two fighters will regroup and come back at it in a few weeks. Bueno Silva last fought back in February where she was awarded a majority draw against Montana De La Rosa.
Draws Fiorot in September
FlyweightUFC
June 9, 2021
Bueno Silva (back) will take on Manon Fiorot in a flyweight matchup at the UFC event scheduled for Sept. 25, AgFight reports (via Marcel Dorff of MMADNA).
ANALYSIS
Bueno Silva is coming off a majority draw against Montana de la Rosa in February and recently pulled out of a fight in May due to a back issue. It looks like that will be cleared up by September, as she'll take on a red-hot fighter in Fiorot who has looked dominant in both her UFC appearances (both finishes). Both fighters are within an inch of each other in both height and reach. Fiorot has a striking volume edge, albeit over a much smaller sample size, in addition to showing more offensive wrestling in her pair of UFC bouts.

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.
Point deduction leads to draw
FlyweightUFC
February 27, 2021
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.
