The seasoned competitor secured a decisive victory on Saturday in the third and final round of the 2022 PFL Playoffs in London, which allowed him to proceed to the championship match in November. Pacheco (18–4) won the fight against Olena Kolesnyk by first-round technical knockout. The stoppage occurred a little over two minutes into the first round. Pacheco’s record now stands at 18–4.
Pacheco finished things out in a decisive and speedy manner. Pacheco surrounded Kolesnyk from the very beginning of the fight and delivered powerful punches, which eventually led to Kolesnyk dropping to the ground.
This is the Brazilian athlete’s second appearance in the championship match; in 2019, she faced off against Kayla Harrison for the title, and again she finds herself in the same position. She was defeated by a judgment that was reached by all of the judges. Under the PFL banner, Pacheco has a record of 7–2, and both of her defeats have come at the hands of Harrison.
