Amanda Nunes was tasked with taking on powerful German kickboxer Sheila Gaff in her UFC debut. Neither woman backed down early as they traded punches and knees in the clinch position. Heart and aggression were on display as they battled for position, but Nunes quickly took control once the fight hit the ground. Gaff unsuccessfully attempted a rear naked choke, and Nunes was able to transition to side control and finally mount to deliver vicious ground and pound. Herb Dean allowed Gaff to try to work her way out of trouble, but the accumulation of strikes forced him to intervene just midway through the first round. Exciting UFC debut for Amanda Nunes.
Winner: Amanda Nunes, 1st Round TKO
