UFC 287’s early preliminary card includes a women’s strawweight bout between Loopy Godinez and Cynthia Calvillo taking place at Kaseya Center in Miami, FL. This part of the card is scheduled to start at 6 p.m. ET and will be streamed on UFC Fight Pass. A middleweight title fight showdown between Alex Pereira and Israel Adesanya will close out the card.
Godinez (8-3) enters this fight coming off a loss to Angela Hill by way of unanimous decision last August. Despite going 2-2 over her last four bouts, Godinez is still a capable striker who can go the distance. 6 of her 8 wins have come by decision. With a 48% significant strike accuracy, Godinez can throw punches at a solid rate.
Calvillo (9-5-1) comes into this bout reeling, dropping her last four fights after a 9-1-1 start to her career. Her last fight was a tough outcome, losing a split decision to Nina Nunes last August. She has had an up and down career, as back in 2017 she defeated Joanne Wood seemingly an ideal kickstart for a young fighter. However, recently, she has encountered bad TKO losses to Andrea Lee and Jessica Andrade
