Strawweight contender Juliana “Ju Thai” de Lima Carneiro picked up her second straight UFC victory in a featured preliminary bout tonight at UFC Fight Night 67: “Condit vs Alves” in Goiânia, Goiás, Brazil. Lima defeated UFC newcomer Ericka Almeida, who suffered the first loss of her career.
Lima controlled the majority of tonight’s fight from top position in Almeida’s guard, and she avoided Almeida’s savvy submission game by landing some nice ground and pound. Almeida looked to rally on the feet in round three, but Lima smothered her on the mat once again and cruised to victory.
