The biggest win of Brazilian bantamweight Mayra Bueno Silva’s career is no more.
On Tuesday, the Nevada Athletic Commission overturned Silva’s win over ex-UFC women’s bantamweight champ Holly Holm, which came via ninja choke in the main event of UFC Vegas 77 this past July.
The change drops “Sheetara’s” professional record to 10-2-1, 1NC and comes following news of a positive drug test previously having been announced by the fighter.
At the time, Bueno Silva denied cheating and stated that the failure was the result of prescription medication for ADHD. “I have been dealing with this disorder my entire life and it affects me in a multitude of ways,” she wrote on social media as part of that announcement.
Commission officials also imposed a brief suspension that will expire on November 29, 2023 and fined her 15% of her purse from the bout (h/t MMA Fighting). The bantamweight does not currently have a fight booked.
Bueno Silva’s case was among several on the agenda on Tuesday, including Daniel “D-Rod” Rodriguez.
Joining the UFC by way of Dana White’s Contender Series in 2018, Mayra Bueno Silva began her stint with the company as a flyweight, but returned to bantamweight, where she had fought early in her career, last year. Upon her arrival in the UFC’s 135lb division she immediately rattled off four straight wins, with Holm being her biggest scalp to date — though that win is no more.
