Andrea Lee was supposed to fight on this card before USADA got in the way, so instead we get Octagon rookies Mara Romero Borella, an Invicta FC vet, against Brazilian Kalindra Faria.

It’s all about jiu-jitsu for Borella, who wastes no time getting Faria to the ground. There, she passes guard, gets mount, waits for an opening, and transitions to back-mount. You’d think, being Brazilian, Faria would have a suitable defense against the choke, but… she doesn’t, and soon Borella is tapping her out.
