Reneau will take on Irene Aldana in a bantamweight matchup at UFC Mexico City on Sept. 21, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Reneau enters this matchup of top-10 bantamweights on the heels of a two-fight losing streak, so she badly needs a win here. At 42 years old, consecutive losses could easily spell the end of her career. She likely enters as an underdog to the 31-year-old Aldana, who will be fighting in her home country of Mexico. Aldana is coming off a loss as well via split decision to Raquel Pennington in July, which snapped a three-fight winning streak. On paper, Aldana has major statistical advantages in both striking volume and takedown defense.
Starts slowly in loss to Yana Kunitskaya
BantamweightUFC
March 9, 2019
Reneau lost to Yana Kunitskaya via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Wichita, Kansas.
ANALYSIS
Reneau fought a bit better than the term 'unanimous decision loss' would lead you to believe. She started slowly before eventually gaining her footing. Reneau's biggest strength is her physicality, but her technical skills are sorely lacking and she struggles in anything other than a brawl. Saturday's brawl began too late. Reneau is in excellent shape for a woman who is set to turn 42 years of age in June, but we have almost certainly already seen the best she has to offer.

ANALYSIS

Dominated by Cat Zingano Saturday in Boise
BantamweightUFC
July 14, 2018
Reneau lost to Cat Zingano via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 26-30) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Boise, Idaho.
ANALYSIS
The loss aside, this was a highly concerning performance for Reneau. For the first time in her UFC career, the 41-year-old high school phys. ed teacher looked overwhelmed inside the octagon. Reneau spent nearly the entire fight on her back as Zingano was able to drag her to the mat repeatedly and without issue. As a result, Reneau landed just 38 total strikes over the course of the 15-minute bout. "The Belizean Bruiser" has little room for error moving forward.
