For the past few years, it has been a rough sketch for Renault (9-6-1 MMA, 5-5-1 UFC). She hasn’t been happy with the win since February 2018 and has lost three consecutive games in the women’s bantamweight division.
She has a chance to turn it around next Saturday UFC Fight Night 184, When she met Chiasson (6-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) in a £ 135 match at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The entire card is set to stream on ESPN +.
All losses in her current drought, and her entire career, are listed on the judge’s scorecard. She said it was very clear what had to happen to turn it around.
“I’m trying to be more aggressive to get the job done, because even if I notice it every time I make a decision, it’s not my favor,” Renault told MMA Junky Radio. “It’s my responsibility not only to make decisions, but to ensure that I get the finish if possible.”
Renault knows that she has the attribute of being difficult to clean up. No one could stop her in the distance, but there were rough moments, so toughness isn’t something she wants to count on.
“There were some cases, but it wasn’t caught because I watched the video again and no one noticed it,” Renault said. “But there are some examples (against Alexis Davis and Yana Kunitskaya) where I was hit by something hot and no one knew I was hit by something hot. I really have, and I don’t like that feeling, so I’ll do my best to defend. “
However, there is not much room for mistake in the fight against Chiasson. Even for thinner weight classes like women’s bantamweights, four consecutive losses is not the scenario everyone wants. Especially if you are the oldest fighter in the department.
However, 43-year-old Renault is confident in his ability to rebound and focuses on what he has to do to raise his hand, not his relationship with Chiasson.
“I’m stuck in the last video (of her previous fight),” Renault said. “It’s just’this is what I’m trying to do.’Can she stop me?”
