“I think it was utter dog c–p,” Harrison said following the win.
“Sorry to the fans, I wanted to put on a better show for you. These girls are tougher than you think. I make it look easy sometimes but other nights, not so much.”
All three judges scored the fight 30-27 for Harrison.
In the beginning of the bout, Harrison used her strikes to set up a takedown. She was eventually able to bring the fight to the ground, but Mokhnatkina managed to defend herself and escape.
In the third round, Harrison remained in control, but she told her coaches that Mokhnatkina was too slippery with sweat and wasn’t able to maintain a grip to fully finish her.
In the final round, Mokhnatkina had done enough to avoid getting her night ended early.
“This is a learning experience,” Harrison said.
“I’m still young in my career. The more time I get in the cage, the better I’m going to get. Ready for the next one.”
