#TUF27Finale results: Montana De La Rosa defeats Rachael Ostovich via third-round submission

Tonight at the TUF 27 Finale show in Las Vegas, two TUF 26 Team Gaethje alums reunited as flyweights Rachael Ostovich and Montana De La Rosa did battle.

RECAP: The entirety of the first round takes place on the feet. Both ladies are talented grapplers but seem content to trade at range. Ostovich appears to be struggling with the reach of De La Rosa and it is De La Rosa who landed the better combinations. Round two begins and both fighters immediately take the center. Rachel is timing her shots much better now. She is rushing in and tagging Montana! De La Rosa is more hesitant now, looking to imitate the clinch. Fantastic takedown defense by Ostovich. We make it to the third round— I have it one round a piece going into the final frame. Against the fence, Rachael lands a beautiful takedown (that she rolled into) and ends up threatening Montana with an arm lock! It looks tight! Montana survives— she climbs to the back of Rachel and lands some stiff elbows, softening Ostovich up. She sinks in a rear naked choke and forces the tap! De la Rosa improves to 2-0 inside the Octagon with two submission wins!
