Montserrat Ruiz

Conejo Mad

Mexico

Third straight knockout loss
StrawweightUFC
November 4, 2023
Ruiz lost to Eduarda Moura via TKO (punches) at 2:14 of Round 2 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
ANALYSIS
Entering as a +500 underdog, largest on the entire card, Ruiz had zero chance of winning this fight. She was dominated from bell-to-bell by an opponent twice her size. There's nothing positive to say regarding Ruiz's performance inside the octagon, with her lone highlight of the night being the fact she will head home with a nice chunk of Moura's purse after the latter missed weight by 3.5 pounds on Friday morning. Ruiz has been knocked out in three straight fights and there's a strong possibility her time with the UFC has come to an end.

Taking on heavy opponent
StrawweightUFC
November 3, 2023
Ruiz will face Eduarda Moura at a catchweight at UFC Sao Paulo on Saturday after Moura missed the strawweight limit, Guilherme Cruz of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Ruiz was added as a replacement fighter in mid-September and will now receive a financial boost for facing a heavy opponent. She was defeated by Jaqueline Amorim in August for a second straight loss and will try to break that streak against Moura, who is making her UFC debut.

Ruiz will face off against Eduarda Moura at UFC San Paulo on Nov. 4, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Ruiz has answered the call for a replacement to fight Eduarda Moura after So Yul Kim withdrew from the bought due to undisclosed reasons. The 30-year-old Mexican fighter will look to get back on track after dropping her last two fights.
Dominated in return from layoff
StrawweightUFC
August 12, 2023
Ruiz lost to Jaqueline Amorim via TKO (strikes) at 3:41 of Round 3 at UFC on ESPN 51 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Fighting for the first time in more than two years, Ruiz was dominated. The lone highlight of her evening was that she landed her only takedown attempt which came early in Round 3. Other than that, it was all downhill. The total strikes count was 141-20 in favor of Amorim, and there appeared to be multiple instances in which referee Chris Tognoni was close to ending it. He finally did so with just over two minutes remaining. Ruiz took an unanimous decision from Cheyanne Vlismas in her UFC debut back in March 2021, but she's dropped two straight since. Her roster spot is probably in jeopardy following this effort.

Ruiz will take on Jaqueline Amorim in a strawweight bout at a UFC event on Aug. 12 in Las Vegas, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports Friday.
ANALYSIS
Ruiz has a win and a loss in the UFC, and will look to get back into the win column after suffering a defeat at the hands of Amanda Lemos back in 2021. That was Ruiz' last fight due to her bout with Mallory Martin being cancelled. She'll face Amorim, who is coming off a defeat via unanimous decision in her first UFC contest.
Withdraws from upcoming fight

November 16, 2021
Ruiz withdrew from her upcoming fight against Mallory Martin on Tuesday for undisclosed reasons, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
With the nature of her absence unclear, it's also unclear when Ruiz will next be able to step into the Octagon. Martin will be able to remain on the card, as Cheyanne Buys has already agreed to step in as Ruiz's replacement.
