Priscila Cachoeira



Can't defend takedown in loss
July 29, 2023
Cachoeira lost to Miranda Maverick via submission (armbar) at 2:11 of Round 3 at UFC 291 on Saturday in Salt Lake City.
Had Cachoeira seen the final bell, she would have dropped a lopsided unanimous decision. A pure brawler with zero ground game to speak of, Priscila gave up one Maverick takedown in each round and wasn't the least bit competitive upon hitting the mat. Cachoeira seems to have zero idea what to do in that area, which is amazing considering it should be the only thing she is working on every single training camp. The only thing that can be said in Cachoeira's defense is that she was originally due to face Joanne Wood in this fight, a totally different type of opponent than Maverick. Set to turn 35 years of age in mid-August, the Brazilian is 2-2 in her past four fights.
