However, for the most part Mcmann was able to hang in there and importantly put her wrestling to good use in the second and third rounds, securing a number of takedown, to claim victory.
Most of the other best known fighters on the card also emerged victorious, many via submission, with Alexis Davis, Liz Carmouche and Amanda Nunes all claiming rear-naked choke finishes, while Sarah D’Alelio won via armbar and Julia Budd produced a TKO stoppage.
