Tonight at UFC Fight Night 129 in Santiago, Chile, the co-main event of the evening took place in the strawweight division as top prospect Alexa Grasso went to battle with TUF 23 winner Tatiana Suarez.
RECAP: Within the first thirty seconds, Suarez is already in hot pursuit of a takedown. Grasso is showing some nice takedown defense early but the relentlessness of Tatiana gets her down. Alexa manages to get back up after a head-and-arm throw but she is brought right back down to the canvas by the wrestler. Suarez maneuvers to the back and secures both hooks in with a rear-naked choke! Alexa fights the best she can but is forced to tap!
HERE'S THE TAP!
