UFC Denver results: Ashley Yoder defeats Amanda Cooper via split decision following back-and-forth battle

Tonight, at the UFC 25th Anniversary Show in Denver, Colorado, strawweights Ashley Yoder and Amanda Bobby Cooper did battle in the first of three exciting women’s bouts.

RECAP: A quick start to this high stakes strawweight scrap! ABC came out strong early with combinations that backed Yoder up. A little over midway through the round Cooper got a takedown. In the second round, Yoder landed a nice left hand that wobbled ABC and followed that up with a judo flip to bring ABC down. Cooper got in some top control time of her own though before the bell sounded. The third round was full of fun scrambles and submission transitions. It was the closest round of the fight and both fighters gave it their all.

Ashley Yoder def. Amanda Cooper via split-decision (29-28, 27-30, 29-28).
