UFC 226 results: Emily Whitmire defeats Jamie Moyle via unanimous decision

Saturday night at the UFC 226 event, Emily Whitmire earned her first promotional victory defeating Jamie Moyle via unanimous decision. All three judges scored the bout 29-28 in favor of Whitmire.

Whitmire improves her record to 3-2-0 and picks up her first UFC victory in what was her promotional strawweight debut. The ‘Spitefire’ believes she was undersized at 125-pounds and feels as though strawweight is her true weight-class. She competed on 2017’s The Ultimate Fighter 26 and was coached by UFC lightweight Justin Gaethje.

Moyle is now 4-3-0, losing three out of her last four in professional competition, previous unanimous decision losses to Viviane Pereira and Sharon Jacobson.

UFC 226 took place Saturday July 7 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. The early preliminary card featuring Moyle vs. Whitmire was aired live on UFC Fight Pass from 7pm EST.
