No. 7-ranked UFC women’s bantamweight Amanda Nunes was looking to put on a show against Sara McMann on the main card of tonight’s (Sat., August 8, 2015) UFC Fight Night 73 from the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee, but no one thought “The Lioness” would take out the Olympic silver medalist wrestler so quickly.
But the American Top Team (ATT) member did, never giving McMann a shot to impose her gameplan with some vicious, quick striking that opened up the opportunity for Nunes to lock on a fight-ending rear-naked choke.
It was a dominant win that should earn her a huge bout her next time out. Check out the full fight video highlights of her telling win above.
