Lupita Godinez Interview (2:32)
Kicking off this edition of TTP is our interview with UFC strawweight, Lupita Godinez. Godinez discusses becoming a fighter known for short notice opportunities. Just 42 days after beating Cynthia Calvillo, she’ll step up on short notice to take on Emily Ducote in a UFC Vegas 73 main card fight. It’s not the first time she’s stepped up and helped the UFC out. From the sounds of it, it also won’t be the last time. She not only breaks down the fight for us, but also gives us her thoughts on fighting a fellow prospect after facing a rash of established veterans. Also, she talks about getting back to her wrestling to show people some of the stuff she’s been working on.
