Rio de Janeiro native, Cachoeira will look to improve her winning run to two-fights, following a knockout win over this weekend’s UFC Fight Night Vegas feature, Shana Dobson inside just forty seconds. News of the tie was initially penned by Combate reporter, Raphael Marinho.

33-year-old Arizona born finisher, Casey began her year in action with a eye-catching submission win of her own. The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu brown belt submitted Italian veteran, Mara Romero Borella via an opening-frame armbar at a UFC Fight Night event in Jacksonville in May.

In other career-high victories, Casey managed another armbar win, this time against Randa ‘Quiet Storm’ Markos, as well decision triumphs opposite former WSOF strawweight best, Jessica Aguilar, and a close win against one-time Invicta FC 115-pound queen, Angela ‘Overkill’ Hill.

Tasked with welcoming future champion, Valentina ‘Bullet’ Shevchenko to the flyweight division upon her debut under the UFC’s banner, Cachoeira dropped a brutal first-round ground-and-pound stoppage.

In a bout which garnered huge controversy, referee Mario Yamasaki was heavily criticised for his incredibly late stoppage – with Cachoeira taking unnecessary punishment. Following a pair of judging losses to the popular, Molly McCann, and compatriot, Luana Carolina – knockout artist, Cachoeira managed her first UFC triumph against the previously noted, Dobson.
