If the name Cynthia Calvillo sounds familiar on the UFC 210 card, it’s because you just heard Bruce Buffer declare her a first-round winner by submission at UFC 209.
Cynthia Calvillo made her UFC debut on March 4, submitting Amanda Cooper on the UFC 209 main card. Now she’s building on that successful launch with a second fight in a five week span, with a spot on the UFC 210 main card in Buffalo on April 8.
For some, this accelerated schedule might sound special or remarkable. Not for Calvillo.
She made her professional MMA debut on Aug. 27, 2016, winning by TKO, and she has not stopped from there. Calvillo has been busy, competing in four fights, including her UFC debut, in less than a year.
Is she in a hurry?
