Priscila Cachoeira Defends Coach After Brutal Loss to Shevchenko: ‘Throwing in the Towel, Never’

There was plenty of criticism to go around following Priscila
Cachoeira
’s lopsided loss to Valentina
Shevchenko
in the UFC
Fight Night 125
co-main event.

The immediate culprit was referee Mario Yamasaki, who
drew the ire of UFC President Dana White
for allowing the
flyweight contest to last as long as it did. Ultimately, Shevchenko
won via rear-naked choke at the 4:25 mark of the second round after
racking up a whopping 230-to-3 advantage in total strikes
landed.

In the aftermath, the UFC matchmaking also received some scrutiny
for allowing Cachoeira, an Octagon rookie, to be paired with
Shevchenko, a former title challenger at 135 pounds. Additionally,
the Brazilian’s corner was questioned for its failure to throw in
the towel as Cachoeira continued to absorb what appeared to be
unnecessary punishment.

Cachoeira disputed the criticism surrounding her fight with
Shevchenko in a recent Instagram post.

“I’ll fight against any fighter in the world, no matter which
position she is [in the ranking]. I’d fight Valentina 10 times more
without thinking twice,” Cachoeira wrote. “Who chooses easy battles
is not a real warrior. The treatment and intimacy that I have with
my master, the ones from outside doesn’t know anything to
criticize. This is not master and student, it’s father and
daughter, and no one can say how he should treat me.

“And about throwing in the towel, this is PRVT and we’re the ones
that know our limits. Throwing in the towel, never.”

The Parana Vale Tudo representative, who fell to 8-1 in defeat,
will likely be out for the remainder of 2018 after undergoing knee
surgery for an injury suffered early in Saturday’s contest.

“I ask for forgiveness to my fans, friends and family that threw a
party to watch my fight. I fought a really tough fighter, who I’m a
fan of, and I wasn’t the real ‘Pedrita’ in the fight,” she wrote.
“Who knows me and followed my daily training knows what I could
have done. And even with the knee injury early in the fight, I went
until the end because I don’t know what giving up means. I’ll have
to have surgery on the ACL and meniscus.”

When she does return, the Rio de Janeiro native vows to come back
stronger than before.

“Thank you for all the messages of love and support I’ve been
receiving. I’m sure I’ve gotten a family for the rest of my life.
And those who are criticizing, I don’t care, I’ll come back
stronger. ‘A moment will not erase a history.’”
