Draws Kianzad in Sao Paulo
March 16, 2020
Correia (11-4-1) is scheduled to take on Pannie Kianzad (12-5-0) in a bantamweight fight May 9 at UFC 250 in Sao Paulo, Farah Hannoun of USA Today reports.
Correia ended a two-fight losing streak in her last trip to the Octagon back in September at UFC Mexico City, where she defeated Sijara Eubanks via unanimous decision. The 36-year-old Correia will be seeking her first UFC win on home soil in May after losing in her prior three bouts in Brazil as a member of the promotion.
Earns first win in over three years
September 21, 2019
Correia defeated Sijara Eubanks via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Mexico City.
The long losing streak is finally over. It wasn't pretty (it never is with Correia), but it's a victory that seems quite likely to save the Brazilian's job. Entering with a 1-4-1 record in her last six fights dating back to her loss to Ronda Rousey in August 2015, Correia survived a minor flurry from Eubanks in Round 1 before outpointing her over the course of the final ten minutes. The 36-year-old Correia is legitimately one of the least talented fighters on the UFC roster, but this win should all but ensure she gets another shot with the company, and that's Correia's biggest concern at this point.
New opponent booked
July 20, 2019
Correia (elbow) will take on Sijara Eubanks at UFC's upcoming event in Mexico City on September 21, Guilherme Cruz of reports.
Correia's most recent match came in the form of a loss to Irene Aldana, her first fight in nearly two years. The 36-year-old has notched only one victory since competing for a UFC Championship against Ronda Rousey in 2015, in addition to three losses and one draw. The brawler's tilt against Eubanks will take place after the conclusion of her six-month medical suspension.
Possible medical suspension ahead
May 13, 2019
Correia has been suspended 180 days by the Brazilian Athletic Commission (CABMMA) due to a possible elbow injury, Guilherme Cruz of reports.
Correia got off to a great start in this fight, but lost her lead late in the battle by attempting a takedown that led to her downfall. Aldana was able to reverse position and take her back, leading to the fight-ending arm bar. Correia's fight Saturday ended nearly a two-year layoff, but if she wants to avoid another six months on the shelf, she'll need to get medical clearance before booking her next fight.
