Godinez defeated Loma Lookboonmee via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 30-27) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
The queen of the quick turnaround, Godinez looked strong while stepping in for Cheyanne Buys on short notice. Loopy has displayed some excellent wrestling skills during his brief time with the UFC, and tonight was no exception. She landed 5-of-12 takedowns good for 7:32 worth of control time, and over the course of her first four UFC bouts, Godinez has now landed 15 successful attempts. Loopy still needs to establish a more consistent presence in terms of her stand-up game, but the grappling is clearly legitimate and can carry her in fights in which she is struggling to create offense.

Fails in quest to make history

Godinez lost to Luana Carolina via unanimous decision (28-29, 28-29, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Hoping to make UFC history, Godinez was fighting for the second time in just seven days. Coming off a first-round submission win over Silvana Gomez Juarez, Godinez agreed to move up a weight class in order to face Carolina here. She started out well, controlling the pace of the fight in Round 1, but "Loopy" understandably slowed as the fight progressed, and that allowed Carolina to up her output on the feet and ultimately take the decision. It was a gutsy performance from Godinez and one that should earn her plenty of respect among the UFC brass despite the setback.
Making quick turnaround

Godinez is stepping in on short notice to fight Luana Carolina at UFC Vegas 40 on Saturday, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Godinez has a chance to make UFC history if she defeats Carolina on Saturday night. Not is the 28-year-old moving up a weight class to fight, but she is making a seven-day turnaround after defeating Silvana Gomez Juarez this past weekend. She has an opportunity to set the record for the quickest 2-0 turnaround in UFC history with a victory. Her opponent last fought in May, coming out victorious via split decision against Poliana Botelho.
Ground game leads to first UFC win

Godinez defeated Silvana Gomez Juarez via submission (armbar) at 4:14 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Godinez dropped her UFC debut to Jessica Penna via split decision this past April, but she had no difficulties with Juarez. "Loopy" showed off her ground game in this one, connecting on five of six takedown attempts, good for 3:27 worth of control time. The finish came when Juarez gave up her back and allowed Godinez to work towards isolating a limb on the mat. Godinez had some helium behind her prior to her company debut, but she is 28 years old and has all of seven professional fights under her belt, so expectations should be tempered. At the very least, she'll walk away with an extra $50,000 here after being awarded a Performance of the Night bonus.
