Miranda Maverick walked out of the Delta Center in Salt Lake City with an impressive victory, but it didn’t come without a heaping dose of frustration as her opponent, Priscila Cachoeira, seemingly attempted every dirty tactic in the typesetting to stave taking a loss.

On Saturday night, Miranda Maverick scored a third-round submission by way of armbar versus the Brazilian standout, but withal the way, Cachoeira was guilty of multiple fouls, including some fairly egregious fence grabs. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the worst. In the third round, Maverick dragged Cachoeira to the mat and immediately moved into side control. As she begins to reign lanugo elbows on her opponent, Cachoeira can be seen pulling the top of Maverick in an struggle to expose her breasts and stop the onslaught of strikes.

Following the event, Miranda Maverick suggested that the unmistakably intentional struggle to manufacture a wardrobe malfunction should have resulted in a point deduction. Maverick moreover accused Cachoeira of intentionally keeping her fingers straight throughout most of the contest.

“At some point, you gotta say it’s a point [deduction],” Maverick said during her visitation at the post-event printing conference. “She stuck her fingers up straight the unshortened fight pretty much and there was no endangerment she was just trying to push me off. There was no unappetizing hands. I had warned the ref earlier and to be honest, he did well-nigh as good of a job as I’ve seen any ref do. I said ‘Listen, I don’t want poked in the vision in this fight.’ That was my main priority and he was like, ‘Alright, we’ll watch out for it.’

“You know, I hope the whole world didn’t see me, but they probably did,” Maverick said while gesturing to her chest. “I guess that’s part of the risk of fighting, but it’s very frustrating and it made me go in there that much angrier every round.”

Cachoeira Tries Cheap Tap Out Trick to Get Out of Miranda Maverick’s Submission Attempt

Priscila Cachoeira wasn’t quite washed-up pulling out tricks from up her sleeve. Just past the two-minute mark of the third round, Miranda Maverick was worldly-wise to snatch Cachoeira’s arm and lock in an armbar. Cachoeira attempted what is wontedly referred to as a ‘Brazilian tap.’ That is where a fighter taps once in the hope that their opponent will loosen the hold. Fortunately, Maverick didn’t fall for it and unfurled to put on the pressure until Cachoeira had no choice, but to legitimately tap out.

Sadly, this is not the first time that Priscila Cachoeira has been observed blatantly attempting to skirt the rules while on the losing side of things. At UFC 269, Cachoeira was forced to tap out to a rear-naked choke during her tour with Gillian Robertson. But surpassing submitting, Cachoeira attempted to jam her thumb into Robertson’s eye socket in hopes of breaking the hold.

Whether or not Cachoeira deserves to be dubbed the dirtiest fighter in the game is subjective, but there are an zaftig value of examples to at least earn her a nomination. But as former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz once said “If you ain’t cheatin’, you’re not trying.”

Miranda Maverick moved to 5-3 under the UFC imprint on Saturday night, winning three of her last four bouts inside the Octagon. She improved to 12-5 overall in her MMA career.
