Amanda Lemos Snatches Top Ranking From Marina Rodriguez After TKO Win

Lemos could have earned herself a title shot, but she might not get it immediately.

Amanda Lemos pulled off an upset.

Lemos finished Marina Rodriguez by technical knockout within 54 seconds of the third round of Saturday’s main event.

This was most likely a title eliminator fight, where Lemos did a better job and earned third round standing KO victory over Rodriguez.

However, it is hard to predict anything in this division since newly crowned champion Carla Esparza is fighting former champion Weili Zhang, and the Chinese are the favorite for a reason. If Zhang wins this bout, the trilogy fight between her and former two time champion Rose Namajunas makes the most sense since Namajunas lost a title against Esparza in a close fight and defeated a Zhang twice the past.

So, maybe Lemos has to wait or earn another victory to fight for the strap.

Neil Magny earned an amazing submission victory against Daniel Rodriguez. He managed to lock D’arce choke in the third round and finish the fight early.

Mark Madsen suffered the first-ever loss in his professional MMA career against American Top Team product Grant Dawson.
