Carolina defeated Priscila Cachoeira via unanimous decision (30-26, 30-26, 29-27) at UFC 237 on Saturday in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
ANALYSIS
Carolina had zero issues with her late-notice replacement. Originally scheduled to face Yanan Wu, Cachoeira stepped in after Wu was injured in late April and Carolina beat her up just the same. A product of Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series, Carolina thoroughly and easily dissected an overmatched Cachoeira with constant combinations and continued aggressiveness. The 25-year-old is a name to watch in the painfully-thin 125-pound UFC's female division.
