StrawweightUFC
February 22, 2024
Ricci will face Tecia Torres at UFC Vegas 92 on May 11th in a strawweight bout, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.
ANALYSIS
Ricci saw her winning streak snapped at four after losing to Lupita Godinez via split decision at UFC 295 on Nov. 11. She might have the upper hand here against Torres due to her opponent's recent inactivity, and Ricci will aim to get back to winning ways in that event.

Winning streak snapped at four
StrawweightUFC
November 11, 2023
Ricci lost to Lupita Godinez via split decision (30-27, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC 295 on Saturday in New York City.
ANALYSIS
Ricci fought well and was plenty competitive, but she certainly did not deserve to win this fight, regardless of what the one judge that gave her every round claimed. There's a case to be made Ricci landed the most damaging blows of the bout, but Godinez was the more active fighter, and optics matter in this sport. It didn't help that Tabatha, who may very well have had an edge in grappling, failed on all six of her takedown attempts. The 28-year-old Brazilian entered having won four in a row, so her roster spot is plenty secure. Ricci will look to rebound her next time out.

Runs winning streak to four
StrawweightUFC
June 24, 2023
Ricci defeated Gillian Robertson via unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 30-27) at UFC on ABC 5 on Saturday in Jacksonville, Florida.
ANALYSIS
It's Ricci's fourth straight victory on the heels of a knockout loss to Manon Fiorot in her company debut back in June 2021. Knowing full well how dangerous Robertson is on the mat, Ricci did an excellent job of making sure she didn't find herself in a compromising position on the ground. The Brazilian finished the bout with a 101-78 edge in total strikes landed, in addition to connecting on 3-of-8 takedown attempts. Ricci is more than deserving of a bump in competition her next time out considering how thin the 115-pound female division is, particularly up top.

Ricci will take on Gillian Robertson at UFC Jacksonville on June 24, Marcel Dorff of Eurosport.nl reports.

Winning streak hits three
StrawweightUFC
March 4, 2023
Ricci defeated Jessica Penne via submission (armbar) at 2:14 of Round 2 at UFC 285 on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Easy work. In a fight which lasted just over seven minutes, Ricci landed 4-of-5 takedowns, secured 5:14 worth of control time and finished with an 81-19 edge in total strikes landed. Somehow, it seemed even more lopsided than that watching it live. The level of competition Tabatha was facing here must be taken into consideration, but she more than handled her business. Having recently turned just 28 years of age, the Brazilian has now won three in a row on the heels of a knockout defeat to Manon Fiorot in her UFC debut back in June 2021.
