Maverick is equally impressive defensively, with a 59% striking defense rate; her head movement, footwork, and counterpunching skills enable her to effectively avoid incoming shots making it hard for opponents to find clean shots against her.

Cachoeira’s offensive striking output is truly impressive, landing an average of 4.68 significant strikes per minute on offense. Her relentless forward pressure and ability to throw combinations allow her to land significant strikes at an impressive rate; however, her striking accuracy of 43% might raise some concerns; as her high volume of striking could leave her vulnerable against counters; also, she absorbs an alarming rate of 7.85 significant strikes per minute suggesting some weakness in her defense capabilities.

Cachoeira secured a victory in her most recent bout against Lipski, displaying her relentless fighting spirit and knockout power. While her takedown defense stands strong at 65%, she might face challenges against a skilled grappler like Maverick, who possesses a higher takedown average.
