Rodriguez is a 32-year-old Brazilian fighter from the Thai Brasil stable. She is undefeated in her professional MMA career and scored two victories and a draw in her UFC bouts. All of her matches in the UFC went to the scorecards with Rodriguez winning both by unanimous decision. This is her third fight for this year with her latest victory was back on August 10 against Tecia Torres on UFC Fight Night 156. This lady fighter caught the eye of Dana White during Dana White’s Tuesday Night Contender Series in Brazil where she scored a first-round KO against Maria de Oliveria Neta. She immediately got her first UFC fight a month after but that resulted in a majority draw.
Rodriguez is a fighter that will try to beat you strategically and her stamina allows her to move around the Octagon freely for 15 minutes. Expect that this match will go against the scorecards with Rodriguez increasing her odds to win via decision.
Calvillo is an American fighter that trains under Team Alpha Male. She currently owns an 8-1 professional MMA record and this will be her seventh UFC bout. The only blemish in her UFC career was back in 2017 when she got beaten by Carla Esparza in UFC 201 – Cyborg vs Holm. She never scored a KO in the UFC but is known to attach the neck and get a rear-naked choke on her opponents. Against Rodriguez, Cavillo is the more veteran UFC fighter and with her ability to submit her opponent, she will not wait for the scorecards to earn her victory. Expect Cavillo to take the fight on the ground with Rodriguez and keep her close to eliminate her distance attacks. Once taken to the floor, she would most probably try to get at her back and execute the RNC in the first round.

Rodriguez vs Cavillo Picks
This should be a close one, but Cavillo is the much-favored fighter because of her overall experience in the UFC according to Top Online Sportsbook. Expect in the first round that Cavillo will try to put the match on the ground while Rodriguez will try to evade and study her. Both lady fighters own a KO punch earlier in their careers and there will be points of the match where they will try to measure if they can take the punches. But with the experience, it should be Cavillo taking this bout via Rear-Naked Choke sometime in the second round.
