UFC women’s strawweight Loopy Godinez reacted following her victory in what was her third UFC fight in the last six weeks.
Godinez has become a bit of a throwback fighter for the UFC matchmakers in recent months as she keeps taking these short-notice fights when the promotion calls on her. Last month, Godinez defeated Silvana Gomez Juarez in what was a fantastic performance. She then turned around on one week’s notice and dropped a decision to Luana Carolina up a weight class. Despite losing her last fight, Godinez had no problem taking another fight on short notice, this time against Loma Looknboonmee at UFC Vegas 43. When Cheyanne Vlismas pulled out due to COVID-19 and the UFC needed someone to step up on short notice to take the fight, Godinez had absolutely no problem saying yes to it.
It turned out to be a good decision for Godinez, who defeated Lookboonmee via unanimous decision by utilizing her strong wrestling game. Godinez improved to 2-2 overall in the UFC with the win, and following the fight, reacted to the W on social media.
