Since coming to the UFC in 2015, Jessica Aguliar has had a tough road to travel. She is 0-2 in her UFC appearances, with both losses via unanimous decision. Her most recent appearance in the Octagon was in May, when she lost to Courtney Casey in a strawweight bout. That fight was her first appearance since August of 2015. An anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tear had kept her on the outside looking in for a year.
In a June 22nd interview with a Brazilian publication, she alluded to the possibility that she is still recovering from the knee surgery, as well as a nose injury.
In a separate article dated June 21st from the same publication, Aguilar alluded to having foot, knee and nose injuries that will keep her from taking another fight any time soon. At this point, one can hope that Jessica will take time to heal and rehab her knee properly, especially since it seems she may have fought at less than 100% following her 2016 ACL repair. A two fight skid is a bid deal for this strawweight athlete, as she was on a 10 fight winning streak with other MMA organizations prior to entering the UFC.
