Mexican strawweight standout Yazmin Jauregui is undefeated in her MMA career and has back-to-back UFC wins.

The red-hot 24-year-old fighter is one of the most interesting prospects around and hopes to take her career to a new level and enter the rankings if she wins against Denise Gomes at UFC 290 on Saturday.

“That’s what I’m hoping happens,” Jauregui recently said. “And the next fight, I know that it’s going to be against an opponent with an even higher level, more experience, and that’s what I’m here for. I came here to get ranked and continue undefeated. And yeah, I think it’s time to be among the ranked fighters.”

Yazmin Jauregui expects tough fight

Despite the big plans the Mexican standout will not overlook Gomes, who happens to be the third Brazilian she’s facing in UFC.

“Denise Gomes is a really young opponent as well, and she’s very hungry,” Jauregui said. “I’ve seen her fights in Invicta FC and her fights in Contender (Series), and she’s a gutsy fighter, she likes to go forward, and doesn’t shy away against anything,” Yazmin Jauregui said.

“She has punching power and this is a really cool challenge for me in the cage.”

Yazmin Jauregui has a pro record of 10-0, with seven stoppage wins. She made her UFC debut this past August with a unanimous decision win against Iasmin Lucindo.
