Brazilian striker, Marina Rodriguez is back with a vengeance. Battling in an all-Brazilian affair against compatriot, Amanda Ribas, Rodriguez was tasked with dispatching one of the most highly-touted prospects around right now.

Dropping the opening round on the judge’s scorecards, Rodriguez rallied with a massive step-in elbow in the second round goings, dropping Ribas before referee, Herb Dean appeared to step in and call a halt to the action. As Rodriguez wheeled away, Dean insisted the fight wasn’t over, as Ribas looked to regain her composure.
