Dominated as late-notice replacement
June 6, 2021
Ricci lost to Manon Fiorot via TKO (punches) at 3:00 of Round 2 at UFC Vegas 28 on Saturday.
Ricci deserves all the credit in the world for taking this fight, up a weight class, on just a few day's notice. Unfortunately, the 26-year-old LFA strawweight was simply overmatched here. While did did get off 17 significant strikes, she absorbed 84 from Fiorot before referee stepped in and mercifully stopped the action. The size difference was noticeable, especially with Fiorot's Round 2 takedown. Still, there's little shame in the result as the biggest underdog on the card, and Ricci should get another chance with the company against much more reasonable opposition (not to mention, presumably in her natural weight class).
