Mayra Bueno Silva (born August 22, 1991) is a Brazilian female mixed martial artist who competes in the Flyweight division of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.


Born in Uberlandia, Silva has lived and trained in gyms in Campinas and São Paulo since January 2015, a couple months before she made her professional debut.[5]

Mixed martial arts career[edit]

Early career[edit]

Starting her career in 2016, Silva only needed 3 fights on the regional Brazilian scene, winning all three and the Batalha MMA Bantamweight title in the process, to be invited onto Dana White's Contender Series Brazil 1. Making quick work of Mayana Souza dos Santos via ninja choke in the first round, she earned a contract to the UFC.[5]

Ultimate Fighting Championship[edit]

Silva made her debut on September 22, 2018, facing Gillian Robertson at UFC Fight Night: Santos vs. Anders.[6] She won the fight via a submission in round one.[7]

Silva faced Maryna Moroz on March 14, 2020, at UFC Fight Night: Lee vs. Oliveira.[8] She lost the fight via unanimous decision.[9] This fight earned her the Fight of the Night award.[10]

Silva faced Mara Romero Borella on September 19, 2020, at UFC Fight Night 178.[11] She won the fight via a submission in round one.[12]

Silva faced Montana De La Rosa on February 27, 2021, at UFC Fight Night 186.[13] After three rounds of fighting, the fight ended with a draw from the judges.[14]

Replacing injured Ji Yeon Kim, Silva was expected to face Poliana Botelho on May 1, 2021, at UFC on ESPN 23.[15] Bueno suffered a back injury in late March and she was pulled from the bout.[16]

Silva was scheduled to face Manon Fiorot on September 25, 2021, at UFC 266.[17] The bout was postponed to UFC Fight Night 195 due to COVID-19 protocols.[18] Silva lost the fight via unanimous decision.[19]

Returning to Bantamweight, Silva faced Wu Yanan on April 16, 2022 at UFC on ESPN 34.[20] She won the fight via unanimous decision.[21] This fight earned her the Fight of the Night award.[22]
