Amanda Lemos’ MMA career and highlights
There's no information available about the Brazilian's amateur MMA career in the public domain. But, after turning professional around the beginning of 2014, Lemos had her first professional MMA fight for a Brazilian promotion named 'Fusao de Artes Marciais'. After gaining two wins in her two FDAM fights, she joined 'Jungle Fury' and fought for them 4 times. Lemos' JF record consists of 3 victories, with one majority draw. Prior to her UFC induction, Lemos held an unbeaten record of 7-0-1.
'Amandinha' made her UFC debut at the UFC Fight Night 113 on 16 July 2017. However, it ended up in the first loss of her professional MMA career. She got TKOd by her opponent, Leslie Smith, in the second round of their bout. After this defeat, Lemos regained her momentum in the promotion with a series of five wins over noted opponents, including the famed Angela Hill.
However, the noted former UFC Strawweight champion, Jessica Andrade, subjected her to her next defeat. The Brazilian submitted to an arm-triangle choke from Andrade in the very first round of their bout. However, 'Amandinha' managed to revamp herself once more and came out victorious in her next two bouts against Michelle Waterson-Gomez and Marina Rodriguez.
Her two previous fights against Waterson-Gomez and Rodriguez stand as an example of her well-rounded fight game. She finished off the former with a superb guillotine choke in the second round. While she also showcased her awesome prowess in striking when she got the better of the latter with a third-round TKO.
Currently, 'Amandinha' has Brazilian fans chanting her name once more. She is awaiting her coveted UFC Strawweight title bout on 19 August against the famed current champ, Zhang 'Magnum' Weili at UFC 292.
