Kicking off the main card of UFC on FOX 20 tonight (July 23, 2016) were strawweight scrappers Felice Herrig and Kailin Curran.

Round one begins with front kicks from Herrig, but she doesn’t land. A couple low kicks and jabs land for Herrig. She lands a three-piece combo on the Hawaiian followed by another leg kick. Curran counters a leg kick with a straight right and a high kick, but Herrig catches the kick and takes her down. The veteran Herrig lands in half guard. As Curran tries to scramble up, “Lil Bulldog” takes the back. Curran stands, but as she does Herrig gets her arm under the neck. Curran falls back to the mat with Herrig beneath her. After a few moments of adjusting, Curran asks out of the match.

Final Result: Felice Herrig def. Kailin Curran via rear naked choke at 1:59 of Round 1.
