“Loopy” will fight twice in seven days, setting a modern-day Ultimate Fighting Championship record.
The 28-year-old Mexican is expected to face Luana Carolina in a case against UFC Fight Night 195 this Saturday. Sherdog’s own sources confirmed the news after ESPN Deportes made the first report on Tuesday night. Godinez replaces Sijara Ebanks, who withdrew from the match due to COVID-19 protocols. The last time a UFC fighter fought twice in such a short time was last July, when Khamzat Chimaev clashed with John Phillips before facing Rhys McKee 10 days later, setting a record now set for Godinez to break. .
Former Legacy Fighting Alliance champion Godinez (6-1, 1-1 UFC) comes away with a victory over Silvana Gomez Juarez at UFC Fight Night 194 last Saturday. In addition to her first UFC victory, the Mexican fighter took home the “Performance of the Night” awards. Prior to that, Team Titan MMA spokeswoman Jessica Penne made a small decision in her UFC debut.
Capital Da Luta Carolina (7-2, 2-1 UFC) has lost only once in its last eight appearances in the cage. “Dread” hit Ariane Lipski in the knee at UFC Fight Night 172, but then Dana White’s Contender Series alum returned to the track, beating Poliana Botelho at the UFC on ESPN 23.
UFC Fight Night 195 will air on October 16 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada. In the main featherweight event, Aspen Ladd will face Norma Dumont. In the co-headliner, former UFC heavyweight king Andrei Arlowski closes horns with Carlos Felipe.
