Souza lost to Randa Markos via unanimous decision (27-30, 27-30, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
A former Invicta Strawweight Champion, big things were expected from Souza upon her arrival in the UFC in September 2018. It simply hasn't worked out, and this was arguably he worst performance to date. Facing an opponent who began the evening with a 6-10-1 (1NC) with the company, The Brazilian somehow allowed Markos to more than triple her (159-51) in the total strikes landed department. She also made countless positional mistakes, essentially giving herself no chance of winning a decision. It's difficult to envision a scenario in which Souza bounces back from this effort.

Inconsistent ways continue

Souza lost to Amanda Lemos via TKO (punches) at 3:39 of Round 1 at UFC 259 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Souza entered the company with some helium back in September 2018 after winning and defending the Invicta Strawweight Championship, but the results in the UFC have been inconsistent, to say the least. Much better on the mat than the feet, Souza struggles in striking exchanges and that was in full display in this one. Lemos clocked her with countless power shots, and Souza had no answers. It's too early to write off the 29-year-old Brazilian, but this looks like a classic case of a competitor beating up on fringe fighters and eventually being exposed when the competition level rises. Souza is 1-2 in her past three bouts after picking up a pair of wins to begin her UFC run.
