Silvana Gomez Juarez

La Malvada


Crumbles under opponent's pace
November 12, 2022
Juarez Gomez lost to Karolina Kowalkiewicz via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC 281 on Saturday in New York.
Gomez Juarez has tremendous power for the division, but Kowalkiewicz kept her on the back foot in every moment of the fight, mixing in grappling and clinch exchanges to close the distance. While she can turn out the lights on any fighter, we have seen Gomez Juarez struggle in other aspects of MMA, so it's worth wondering how well her game can translate to a rise in the rankings. She falls to 11-5-0 in professional MMA as a result of the loss, and may not return to the UFC given this was the last fight on her contract.

Facing Kowalkiewicz at UFC 281
August 18, 2022
Juarez will fight Karolina Kowalkiewicz at UFC 281 on Nov. 12, Carlos Contreras Legaspi of ESPN Deportes reports.
Juarez earned her first UFC victory in June when she knocked out Na Liang, and she'll look to make it two straight when she meets Kowalkiewicz in the Octagon in November. Juarez is 1-2 with the promotion and will look to improve to .500 against Kowalkiewicz, who is one year younger at 36 years of age.
Scores huge KO for first UFC win
June 11, 2022
Juarez defeated Na Liang via KO (punches) at 1:22 of Round 1 at UFC 275 on Saturday in Singapore.
That's the first victory of Juarez's UFC career, and it came in emphatic and overwhelming fashion. A fighter known for her striking power, Juarez took full advantage of a recklessly aggressive Liang. Juarez clocked her opponent with a huge right hand which dropped her and then finished the fight with another combination after Liang briefly got back to her feet. Juarez was submitted in each of her first two bouts with the company and turns 38 years of age this coming December, so it's overwhelmingly likely impressive result isn't a sign of things to come, but it gets Juarez in the UFC win column and guarantees her another fight with the company. It will also earn her a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus, which was given to all five fighters who earned a stoppage on the card.
Taking on Na Liang in June
March 8, 2022
Juarez will fight Na Liang at UFC's June 11 event, Carlos Contreras Legaspi of ESPN Deportes reports.
Juarez has lost her first two matchup in the UFC to Vanessa Demopoulos and Lupita Godinez, both via submission (armbar), and she'll enter the Octagon again in June. Liang is also looking for her first victory in the promotion after losing via TKO (punches) to Ariane Carnelossi in her UFC debut in April 2021.
Still searching for first UFC win
January 22, 2022
Juarez lost to Vanessa Demopoulous via submission (armbar) at 2:25 of Round 1 at UFC 270 on Saturday in Anaheim.
It's a crushing defeat for Juarez in a fight she appeared to have won. She dropped Demopoulous with a huge punch in the early going, and no one would have questioned referee Frank Trigg's decision to halt the contest after Juarez connected with plenty of follow-up shots. He allowed Demopoulous to continue, however, and Juarez found herself tapping out not 30 seconds later. It's unclear how many more chances Juarez will get with the company. She is 37 years of age and has been submitted via first-round armbar in each of her first two UFC bouts. That's not a recipe for sticking around for an extended period of time.
Fight moved to UFC 270
January 13, 2022
Juarez will now take on Vanessa Demopoulos at UFC 270 on Jan. 22 instead of UFC Vegas 46 on Saturday, Damon Martin of reports.
Juarez was set to fill in as a late-notice replacement for Ashley Yoder, which may have something to do with why the fight was ultimately pushed back. She currently sits as roughly a (+110) betting underdog for the flyweight matchup.
