Priscila Cachoeira earned another hard-fought knockout win earlier tonight (Sat., May 15, 2021) at UFC 262 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Toyota Center in Houston, Tex., when the Brazilian fighter put a stop to Gina Mazany via second-round TKO (punches).
This was all Mazany in the early going as she levied her wrestling to score takedown after takedown and really started to take over. Cachoeira kept busy off her back and even cut Mazany in the second round. Mazany started to tire from keeping up such pressure and the referee decided to stand the two women up. From there, Cachoeira was able to stalk Mazany down and land heavy punches along the cage before “Danger” covered up and the referee stepped in.

Cachoeira was coming off a first-round knockout finish over Shana Dobson back in February so this victory is a massive win for her at 125 pounds. The 32-year-old certainly needs to work on her takedown defense, but her hands are proving to be deadly when given the chance to throw them.
