Amanda Ribas is a savage.

After a tough first round against Luana Pinheiro, the UFC strawweight contender stormed back to finish her late in the third round with a spinning heel kick and punches. The bout took place on the main card of Saturday's UFC Fight Night in Las Vegas.

It was a statement win for Ribas, who got back on track and has now alternated wins and losses in her past seven Octagon appearances. Ribas competed at 115 pounds for the first time since 2021 after three fights at women's flyweight.
