Fight Report

Germaine de Randamie defeats Anna Elmose by TKO at 3.46mins of Rd1

In the early stages of the opening round Elmose was looking to play spoiler as she pressed De Randamie up against the cage and then took her down. However, De Randamie was determined not to let her home fans down, and so when she was able to get back to her feet and break free from Elmose’s grasp she immediately began punishing her with strikes. Elmose already looked tired after her early exertions and Re Randamie was picking her apart with crisp punches at range and nasty knees in the clinch. Eventually she had Elmose in the full thai clinch against the cage and landed a brutal knee to the body that folded Elmose to the mat and produced the TKO finish.

Nikita Krylov defeats Francimar Barroso by submission (Rear-naked choke) at 3.11mins of Rd2

Krylov had the better of the striking action in the opening round, but found himself being taken down by Barosso early in the second. However, Krylov executed a very nice sweep almost immediately to get on top. Barroso continued to threaten with submissions from his back, but eventually Krylov was able to take his back and sink in the fight-ending rear-naked choke to maintain his impressive finishing record.

Karolina Kowalkiewicz defeats Heather Clark by unanimous decision (29-28 x2, 30-27)

Kowalkiewicz was able to outstrike Clark in this fight with short, accurate flurries, particularly in the later rounds. Clark was able to tie Kowalkiewicz up against the cage at times, but wasn’t able to take her down, and faded late in the contest.
