The strawweight division is better than it’s ever been in the UFC right now. With plenty of new and talented faces making their presences felt, none have done so arguably quite as well as Tatiana Suarez has.
After winning season 23 of The Ultimate Fighter, Suarez has done nothing but continue to impress with her unstoppable wrestling abilities.
A life-long wrestler, Suarez doesn’t see any way that her opponents will be able to ever match her skill for skill in that department.
“I believe my credentials really speak for themselves,” Suarez said on The Luke Thomas Show. “I’ve been to multiple world championships and stuff like that. I’ve been wrestling since I was three-years-old. To think that these girls are going to catch up to me in three months or whatever or however long is just insane.
“So to me, I’m like, ‘That’s fine. You can work on your wrestling or whatever it is,’ But I have multiple attacks and things that people haven’t even seen because the things that I’m doing are working so I don’t really have to go to too many chain things that I can go to.
“I definitely think that my wrestling is better than any woman in the UFC right now.”
When looking at her division specifically, Suarez compares her wrestling to former champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk’s Muay Thai which was unmatched on her rise to the top of the mountain. Something Suarez believes her wrestling will help her do.
And for her next time out, Tatiana Suarez will be looking to halt the impressive winning streak of Jedrzejczyk’s teammate, Nina Ansaroff as the two are set to meet at UFC 238 in Chicago, Illinois on June 8.
The winner of the bout will very likely be next in line for a title shot.
