LAS VEGAS – After a short break, Ariane Lipski will get back to work on Saturday. She wants to get on a winning streak.
It is a women's flyweight title fight between Lipski (14-7 MMA, 3-4 UFC) and Cachoeira (11-4 MMA, 3-4 UFC) that will kick off UFC on ESPN 40 at the UFC Apex. The card airs on ESPN and is available to view on ESPN+. Due to an injury, Lipski was unable to take on JJ Aldrich in March. With this in mind, she is hoping that her upcoming bout with fellow Brazilian Cachoeira will not only put her back in the ring, but will also set her on a winning run. Lipski had lost two straight fights by TKO to Antonina Shevchenko and Montana De La Rosa before she beat Mandy Bohm in September 2021.
