Felice Herrig has yet to find her groove since coming to the UFC, and given her mileage and time in the game, it’s likely she never will. But here she is, opening up the UFC on FOX 20 main card opposite a very promising Kailin Curran, so, yeah, someone might be catching a beating in this one.
Herrig takes the center of the Octagon and stands within punching range, and the two kickbox, with the veteran actually getting the better of the exchanges. Curran ties up but Herrig takes her down, and after passing her guard soon has Curran’s back. She slips on the choke, and though it’s defended well for a bit, soon Curran is tapping.
Result: Felice Herrig def. Kailin Curran via Submission (Rear Naked Choke) at 1:59, R1
