Inconsistent ways continue

Brasil lost to Loma Lookboonmee via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
This fight was more competitive than many expected it to be. Both women landed one takedown. If you told Brasil that was going to be the case before the fight began, she certainly would have signed up. Ultimately, however, Brasil wasn't able to consistently win the striking exchanges between the two despite having a big size advantage. It's certainly worth noting Lookboonmee was by far the best opponent Bruna had faced to date. Sporting a 1-2 record in her first three UFC bouts, Brasil looks like nothing more than roster depth.

Secures first UFC victory

Brasil defeated Shauna Bannon via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in London.
ANALYSIS
Brasil by no means overwhelmed the debuting Bannon, but she certainly did enough to win a clear decision. Bruna let her opponent lead the way on the feet, giving up plenty of volume in exchange for landing the more meaningful strikes. She tossed in a couple well-timed takedowns for good measure. Brasil's knockout loss to Denise Gomes in her UFC debut this past April seemed ugly at the time, but it looks much better now following Gomes' 20-second obliteration of Yazmin Jauregui a few weeks ago. We should see Brasil back in the Octagon in fairly short order.

Brasil will fight Shauna Bannon in a strawweight bout at UFC London on July 22, according to Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl.
ANALYSIS
After suffering a TKO loss to Denis Gomes in April, Brasil will try to redeem herself against one of the company's latest signings. Bannon is an undefeated fighter with fewer fights and a little less height but similar age and a larger reach.
Stoppage defeat in UFC debut

April 15, 2023
Brasil lost to Denise Gomes via TKO (punches) at 2:42 of Round 2 at UFC on ESPN 44 on Saturday in Kansas City.
ANALYSIS
Entering as a slight -145 favorite for her UFC debut, Brasil didn't show much. She allowed Gomes to land all three of her takedown attempts in the near eight-minute bout before being blasted with a right hand that sent her crumbling to the mat and set in motion the sequence of events which ended the fight. Brasil earned her UFC opportunity with a knockout win on Dana White's Contender Series last September, but this wasn't a good start to her official run with the company. The Brazilian will need to show more her next time out.

Brasil (8-2-1) is scheduled to face Denise Gomes (6-2-0) in a strawweight bout at the UFC's April 15 event, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Brasil, who trains out of Maringa, Parana, Brazil, will match up against one of her fellow countrywomen in her UFC debut. The 29-year-old Brasil earned a UFC contract in September as part of Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series after defeating Marnic Mann in the second round via head kick.
