The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 18 contestant Sarah Moras had been out of the octagon for two years heading into her fight with No. 15-ranked Ashlee Evans-Smith on the preliminary card of tonight’s (Sat., September 9, 2017) UFC 215 from Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada.
Evans-Smith had won two of her previous three fights meanwhile, making it little surprise she came into the bout as roughly a three-to-one favorite. But the Canadian Moras came to battle in her home country, capitalizing on an early takedown from Evans-Smith to work a beautiful armbar submission by patiently allowing the hold to develop.
Once she had the positioning, there was no question it was over, as Evans-Smith immediately tapped when her arm was bent at a gruesome angle. Moras secured a huge hometown win, triumphantly returning to the UFC while octagon commentators Daniel Cormier and Joe Rogan commented that Evans-Smith’s arm had been dislocated. Check out the brutal submission from UFC on FOX right here:
