Accepts four-month suspension
FlyweightUFC
December 18, 2019
Cachoeira accepted a four-month suspension by the USADA on Wednesday, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Cachoeira tested positive for a banned diuretic in October, and she will be sidelined for four months on a reduced suspension as a result of the circumstances surrounding the use of the substance. The suspension is retroactive to the date of the positive test, so she will be eligible to return to fighting on Feb. 20.

Cachoeira will not fight at UFC Sao Paulo on Nov. 16 after testing positive for a banned diuretic, MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Cachoeira said that her mother, a nurse, gave her some of her own medication when she was feeling ill with high blood pressure, not knowing that it was on the banned list due to its alternate use as a masking agent. The USADA may not care, though, as Cachoeira is hardly the first athlete to come up with a seemingly sympathetic story following a failed test. Cachoeira's scheduled opponent for the Sao Paulo event, Ariane Lipski, will now need to find a new opponent if she's to remain on the card.
Seeking first UFC win in Sao Paulo

Cachoeira has been booked to take on Ariane Lipski in a flyweight bout at UFC on ESPN+ 21 on Nov. 16 in Sao Paulo, Nolan King of MMAJunkie.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Cachoeira's MMA career has taken a sharp downward turn after she started off 8-0. After a loss via unanimous decision back in May to Luana Carolina at UFC 237, she has now dropped each of her first three fights under the UFC banner, and her time with the promotion is certainly in flux. Now, something will have to give come November, as her opponent, Lipski, is also winless since signing with the UFC.
Remains winless in UFC career

May 11, 2019
Cachoeira lost to Luana Carolina via unanimous decision (26-30, 26-30, 27-29) at UFC 237 on Saturday in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
ANALYSIS
It was a third straight dreadful effort from Cachoeira. She has now proven on multiple occasions that she isn't a UFC-caliber fighter and Saturday was no different. Cachoeira displays shockingly poor defense and a distinct inability to get anything going offensively. Her pure toughness it the only reason this fight saw the final bell. It's going to be difficult for the UFC to run Cachoeira out there again after this performance.
Replaces Wu at UFC 237

April 22, 2019
Cachoeira has signed on as a late-term replacement for Yanan Wu against Luana Carolina at UFC 237 on May 11, Alexander K. Lee of MMAfighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Cachoeira entered UFC riding an eight-fight win streak to start her professional career, including four by knockout, but has dropped each of her first two bouts since joining UFC. She'll now have a chance to pick up her first victory against Carolina, who will be looking to do the same in her UFC debut.
