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

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.

Bueno Silva will take on Mara Romero Borella in a flyweight matchhup scheduled for September 5, Marcelo Barone of Combate reports.
ANALYSIS
Bueno Silva picked up a win in her UFC debut against a now-surging Gillian Robertson, but spent 18 months on the sidelines after that. She returned for a matchup against Maryan Moroz in March that won Fight of the Night honors, but she was bested over the three-round affair, allowing Moroz to register a whopping 139 significant strikes. She should enter as the favorite come September, however, as Romero Borella is on a three-fight losing streak and could very well be fighting for her spot on the roster. Bueno Silva will enter this fight at a three-inch reach disadvantage, but the Contender Series product should have the skills in her arsenal to overcome that.
Struggles after long layoff

Bueno Silva lost to Maryna Moroz via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Brasilia, Brazil.
ANALYSIS
Sidelined since September 2018 due to a serious knee injury, Bueno Silva looked like a fighter who hadn't fought in nearly a year and a half. Her cardio was poor and she looked sloppy from a technical standpoint. Bueno Silva is a legitimate threat on the mat but she surprisingly didn't attempt a single takedown on Saturday. That decision was made all the more shocking by the fact she was picked apart by Moroz on the feet. There's nothing in Bueno Silva's background to suggest she's a legitimate title contender or anything like that but this poor effort appeared to be the result of being on the sidelines for such an extended period of time. We'll see if she improves her next time out.

Bueno Silva will face Maryna Moroz (elbow) in a flyweight bout at UFC Brasilia on March 14, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Bueno Silva defeated Gillian Robertson via submission (armbar) at UFC Sao Paulo in September of 2018, but she suffered a serious knee injury during the fight that has left her sidelined ever since. The win in her UFC debut brought her professional record to 5-0. Moroz is coming off an elbow injury that left her unable to train or spar with her upper body, but she apparently feels healthy enough to take on Bueno Silva. Moroz win her last fight against Sabina Mazo via unanimous decision at UFC Philadelphia in March of 2019 to bring her MMA record to 9-3. Moroz carries a slight height advantage heading into the fight.

Bueno Silva (knee) received a 180-day medical suspension Tuesday, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Bueno Silva twisted her left knee in her previous fight before winning via submission (armbar). As such, she'll be held out for six months unless she gets medical clearance before then. Her team said they expect to receive test result on her knee back Wednesday, so her long-term status could become better known very soon.
