The victory came as Suarez’s second of the year, following a prior submission success against Montana De La Rosa in February – which marked her first outing inside the Octagon in over four year following a torrid run of consecutive injury setbacks.

And with a firm eye on this month’s proceedings at UFC 300, Suarez watched on as the above-mentioned, Weili landed a one-sided decision win over compatriot, Yan Xiaonan in the pair’s historic title affair as part of the monumental card.
