After Securing First UFC Win, Juliana Lima Says Fans Have Only Seen 30 Percent Of What She Is Capable Of

Juliana Lima scored her first UFC win over Nina Ansaroff at UFC Fight Night 56 in Uberlandia over the weekend, but said that she hasn’t displayed even half of what she can do.

“I wish I had the chance to move more, but the adrenaline of fighting for the UFC in your home state consumed some of my gas,” Lima told the media in Brazil. “As my coach says, you only saw 30 or 40 percent of what I can do. I’m only getting better, and you will see the real ‘Ju Thai’ in my next fight.”

Lima won the fight by decision and was able to deftly escape a few of her opponent’s submission attempts in the bout. She said that the excitement of fighting in her home country affected her performance.
