A pair of UFC women’s flyweight fighters are looking to continue their newfound success.

According to a report by Combate, Priscila Cachoeira and Gina Mazany will fight on May 15. Mazany also announced the news on social media.

Mazany (7-4) has not had the most success in the UFC thus far. However, she appears to be going in the right direction after her last fight. Mazany changed fight camps to Glory MMA and dropped down to flyweight for her most recent bout, coming up with a solid result. She finished Rachael Ostovich via TKO at UFC on ESPN: Smith vs. Clark, which in turn gave Ostovich her walking papers. Before that win, Mazany had lost in 22 seconds five months earlier, opposite Julia Avila.

Mazany was released from the UFC to start the year in 2020 after going 1-4 but fought her way back. She is looking to start over at flyweight.

Cachoeira (9-3) was essentially fighting for her job in February of last year. She wound up giving UFC fans one of the best KOs of 2020 when she knocked Shana Dobson out in New Zealand. Cachoeira looked to capitalize on her first UFC win on Halloween, but a botched weight cut scrapped her fight with Cortney Casey. It will be over a year since she lost fought when she faces Mazany.

There are no other fights announced as of yet for the UFC’s May 15, 2021 event. No location/venue has been revealed for the date.
