The two strawweights feel each other out on the feet for a short while, before a takedown attempt by Alexa Grasso quickly turns into a submission attempt by Tatiana Suarez. Suarez is fishing for a triangle choke from the bottom before settling on a rear-naked choke midway through the first round. Suarez is just seamlessly transitioning different submissions, and the undefeated Suarez ultimately submits Grasso at 2:44 rear of the very first round.
