UFC 274 Early Prelims: Ariane Carnelossi vs Lupita Godinez – Fight Breakdown

Although Ariane Carnelossi won her last two fights, the victories were far from convincing. Whenever Carnelossi gets cornered, she resorts to swinging big punches. Her loss to Angela Hill was a result of Hill’s constant pressure. But the important thing for her is, that Ariane finds a way to win.

Will it work against Lupita Godinez? Although Lupita has a slight disadvantage in reach, Godinez is much slicker on the feet. Despite losing twice in recent times, Lupita never gets into any careless slugfest. Hence, Carnelossi may look to alter her approach. Otherwise, Ariane may get countered every time she tries to swing for the fences.
