The talented strawweight fighter Stephanie Luciano recently fought at Dana White’s Contender Series 63 against Talita Alencar.

Stephanie Luciano on getting a contract
During the recent post-fight press conference, Stephanie Luciano expressively spoke about her fight against Talita Alencar and reacted to getting a new contract when she least expected it.
“It’s surprising, right,” Luciano said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. “I didn’t know what was going to happen there. I mean, Talita Alencar is a great athlete, and she came to impose her game, and then it was my turn to show her what I’m about, and I think that’s what made a difference.You don’t come out with a win, but you conquer the hearts of people, and that’s why I think I was able to get what I got.
Luciano further said: “It was part of the strategy, actually, listening closely to my corner, we knew that she could get tired of this, and they said this plenty of times. It’s not jiu-jitsu, it’s MMA. When I saw my opportunity, I was able to put my game, and you could see she was getting tired.
I went for it. I really feel I could’ve knocked her out, but it didn’t happen. So now, that’s an opportunity to get better, so let’s go”.
