Amanda Ribas win over Katlyn Chookagian could earn her a UFC title shot

Ribas is set to get back to the Octagon on the primary card of UFC Vegas 54 on Saturday night against Katlyn Chookagian. She's climbing in weight to take the battle and for the Brazilian, she realizes this is a major an open door for her as though she can beat Chookagian, Ribas figures she will procure a flyweight title shot.

"That is so astounding in light of the fact that it's the No. 1 (competitor), so this for me … certain individuals think, 'It's not an excess of strain?' For me, no," she said at media day. "For my purposes, it's a colossal open door. It's astonishing… I think yes. Obviously, it relies upon the aftereffect of the battle, yet yes. I think yes."

As Ribas says, Chookagian is at present positioned number one at flyweight yet was out of choices for her next battle as the Brazilian moved forward. Chookagian is a generally excellent striker while Ribas ought to have the catching benefit, and for Ribas, she realizes this is a troublesome battle for her yet one she is amped up for.

"I believe she's great warrior and she's No. 1," she made sense of. "I should be cautious since she tosses a great deal of punches and make a ton of focuses. I really want to invest my effort and make my distance since I don't maintain that she should partake in the battle. Assuming I did her to do that, it might work out great for her, so I would rather not do that."

Alongside that, the flyweight title is on the line at UFC 275 on June 11 as Valentina Shevchenko takes on Taila Santos. With that, the timing turns out for Ribas to battle the champ assuming she gets her hand raised on Saturday night.

Amanda Ribas got back to the success section last break as she beat Virna Jandiroba by choice at UFC 267. She was supposed to confront Michelle Waterson at UFC Columbus however a physical issue to Waterson dropped the battle and she then, at that point, chose to climb in weight and face Chookagian on Saturday night.
