ANALYSIS
Vieira had success with her control grappling, but Kunitskaya inflicted more damage throughout the fight (215 total strikes to 35). It came down to Round 3, where Vieira dominated with control, but Kunitskaya ended the round strong with hard ground-and-pound that opened up a cut on Vieira's head. Vieira started her UFC run with a four-fight winning streak, but with the competition rising, she's now 1-2 in her last three fights. To make matters worse, she was one of the bigger betting favorites on the card at (-270).
