Tabatha Ricci (Strawweight)
25 | 5’1” | Aracatuba, Sao Paulo, Brazil | 3-0 | 1 Finish | 1 Submission (Armbar) Combined Opponents’ Record: 1-2-1 | Best win – Graziele Ricotta (1-2-1)
Ricci is a judo black belt and a training partner of UFC’s Mackenzie Dern. On the feet, Ricci is a buzzsaw in blitzes dishing out a lot of output. She strikes well to close the distance and once she gets the takedown she’s where she wants to be. Ricci has strong jiu-jitsu, that being her best weapon. You can’t complain about anything she does grappling as she is so good.
Ricci is still inexperienced but her ties with Mackenzie Dern and fighting for LFA gives her a shot at the UFC. I’d say another win inside the LFA cage and we will see Ricci next Summer competing on the Contender Series.
