ABU DHABI – Amanda Ribas spoke to the media Tuesday ahead of UFC 257.

Ribas (10-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) discussed her strawweight bout against Marina Rodriguez (13-1-2 MMA, 2-1-2 UFC), her desire to steal the show on Conor McGregor’s undercard, how she intends to avoid letting her growing star power become a distraction, a response to her opponent’s warning about a striking fight, and much more.

UFC 257 takes place Saturday at Etihad Arena on Yas Island. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN and ESPN+.
