Facing Emily Whitmire

Cifers will take on Emily Whitmire in a strawweight matchup on Feb. 27, Mike Heck of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Something has to give in this one, as both fighters will enter the matchup in rather poor form. Whitmire has lost two straight, both prior to the third round, though that losing streak is only half as long as Cifers'. Cifers has been finished prior to the third round in each loss of her streak as well.
Fourth straight stoppage loss
StrawweightUFC
Out
August 29, 2020
Cifers lost to Mallory Martin via submission (rear-naked choke) at 1:33 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Saturday's setback was Cifers' fourth straight stoppage loss and came on the heels of missing weight Friday. The crazy thing is that Cifers never looked better than she did in Round 1. She floored Martin with a straight right hand and unleashed countless follow-up shots but was never able to close the deal. Martin appeared to recover in between rounds and Cifers found herself tapping out shortly into the second frame. The 28-year-old North Carolina native now stands with a record of 2-5 under the UFC banner.
Doesn't make weight

Cifers missed the strawweight limit for Saturday's bout versus Mallory Martin, MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Cifers was a pound over the allotted range for the fight, marking the first time she has missed as part of the UFC company. It's not a great look for a fighter on a three-bout losing streak and will presumably result in her forfeiting a portion of her purse for the contest.

Cifers will square off against Mallory Martin in Las Vegas on Aug. 29, MMA DNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Cifers may be nearing the end of her rope after losing three straight bouts, including each of the last two in the first round via submission. She has been thoroughly outclassed of late but gets another opportunity to turn things around against an opponent in Martin who looked underwhelming in her UFC debut versus Virna Jandiroba. Cifers cedes three inches of height and one inch of reach to her opponent, so she will likely aim to get in closer to do some damage.
Endures medical suspension

June 15, 2020
Cifers has been medically suspended through July 14 due to an undisclosed injury, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Cifers is also not allowed to have any physical contact through July 5 due to her undisclosed injury. The news comes following her loss to Mariya Agapova via submission at 2:42 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas. It marked her second loss in a two-week span. She will now look to turn her momentum around once her health is back up to par.
