Cynthia Calvillo

It’s been over two years since Cynthia Calvillo (9-4-1) defeated Jessica Eye and improved her record to 9-1-1. Since then, she went into a tailspin, losing matches to Katlyn Chookagian, Jessica Andrade, and Andrea Lee. Calvillo had a quality fight with two-time UFC strawweight champion Carla Esparza, losing by unanimous decision. In her last bout, Calvillo went from a determined fighter to a demoralized starlet after Lee bloodied her in two rounds. That forced Calvillo to quit the match before the start of the third round. Calvillo needs to win her upcoming bout against Nunes to put her back into relevancy in the flyweight division and gain more significant fights in the future.

Nina Nunes

Sixteen months since succumbing to Mckenzie Dern via an armbar submission, Nina Nunes (10-7) steps inside the octagon for a clash against Calvillo, who is also seeking a career-defining victory after losing three straight matches. Nunes, married to UFC two-division champion Amanda Nunes, has lost two consecutive fights as she needs to pick up a win to restore her career. She is ninth in the UFC strawweight division, and a victory would catapult her to the top 15 of the UFC flyweight rankings. Nunes’ hands are capable of knocking out opponents in a flash. However, she is also well-versed in the mat as Nunes is a purple belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. She is also ready to “stand and bang” and last three rounds when needed.
