Kunitskaya-Santos again defeated in UFC. The dismissal of the Russian woman is getting closer

After a long downtime, Chanterelle doesn’t seem like herself.

On the night of July 2, in Las Vegas (USA), the next tournament of the world’s leading MMA promotion takes place at the UFC Apex arena. In one of the bouts on the undercard, our compatriot Yana Kunitskaya-Santos took on Carol Rosa in the women’s featherweight division, which is about to sink into oblivion.

Details of the rest of the matches of the evening:

For Yana, this is the second fight after returning to the Octagon. The Russian woman managed to get married, give birth to a son and return to performances in the UFC. The first pancake came out lumpy. Kunitskaya-Santos lost outright to former champion Holly Holm, 41, in March. In all three rounds, the American was superior to Yana: she interrupted in a standing position, gave no chance on the ground and performed confidently in the clinch. As a result, Holm naturally carried the case to victory via unanimous decision. Thus, Lisichka came to the fight with Carol Rosa in the sixth line of the bantamweight classification, but with a series of two straight losses and very mixed statistics in the UFC: 4-4.

Carol Rosa also went after the loss against her compatriot Norma Dumont. The Brazilian has alternated wins and losses in recent fights and took absolutely all of her fights in the UFC to the decision of a referee.

On paper, the chances of Kunitskaya-Santos were assessed rather pessimistically. A nondescript return after some downtime shook Yana’s position, and Rosa is also quite the active girl in the Octagon, using a variety of punching techniques, punching hard and cheesy faster than the Russian woman. However, for the representative of Brazil, Kunitskaya-Santos is the first really eminent opponent. Prior to this, Rosa’s opposition had been rather weak and Yana’s rich experience was worth taking into account.

Another important point: Carol Rosa came out on two weeks’ notice. Initially, Maisie Chiasson, who ranks eighth in the rating, was supposed to be Kunitskaya-Santos’ opponent, but the American withdrew from the fight and was replaced by Rosa, who sits in ninth in the rating.

We remember Yana’s last fight in the UFC:

The first round started very active and at the same time chaotic. The girls flew in exchanges from the first seconds and periodically turned into a clinch, where Yana worked well on the body and elbows at the start. Towards the middle of the first five-minute period, Santos-Kunitskaya pressed Rosa hard against the cage and didn’t let go from there, simultaneously exercising her opponent’s legs and body with her knees. The Brazilian managed to escape, but the Russian kept her distance well and didn’t allow Carol to create anything, confidently taking the round.

The beginning of the second round Rose started more actively. Kunitskaya-Santos reacted instantly and tied her opponent in the clinch, extinguishing his offensive momentum. Yana noticeably surpassed the Brazilian athlete in speed. At the same time, Lisichka periodically went into rash attacks, leading to exchanges that did not favor the Russian woman. Because of this, Rose, with her heavy hands, successfully hit and stopped Kunitskaya-Santos. From a game plan standpoint, Yana didn’t look her best in the second round and gave her opponent too many chances instead of keeping her distance. A close round, which largely predetermined the outcome of the entire fight.

The third round began again with Rosa’s attacks, successfully hitting the head and slightly surprising the Russian, and then adding several strong front kicks to Yana’s body. Kunitskaya-Santos tried to grab hold of her again, but Rosa confidently tossed her away from her. In general, Kunitskaya-Santos seriously slowed down in the final round and this opened up more opportunities for the Brazilian. Rosa looked clearly better and with confidence she took the five minute third period. There were also very worrying situations for our compatriot, but Yana survived.

As expected, the fight came to a judge’s decision. As a result, the Brazilian girl took the victory by a separate verdict from the referee. Yana Kunitskaya-Santos suffers a third loss in a row, now has a negative history in the UFC and very dim prospects. Rosa, for her part, closes the defeat and, for sure, will surpass Yana in the ranking.
