In the main event of UFC on Fox 22 which took place at the Golden 1 Centre in Sacramento, California, former Invicta Atomweight champion Michelle Waterson outclassed hometown girl Paige Van Zant on her way to securing a first round submission victory.
“The Karate Hottie” proved too much for the 22-year old as she executed a perfect head-and-arm throw and transitioned to the back of Van Zant. From there, Waterson locked in a tight rear naked choke which forced the referee to stop the fight when Van Zant refused to tap after holding on and fighting the attempt for as long as she could.
