Rachael Ostovich gave Team Gaethje a 4-3 lead with a dominant performance during tonight’s seventh episode of The Ultimate Fighter 26: “A New World Champion.” Ostovich earned Team Gaethje their fourth victory via a first round rear-naked choke over Melinda Fabian.

In a classic grappler vs striker matchup, it was the Invicta veteran who came out on top, surprising Fabian with hard overhand rights on the feet before taking her to the ground where she locked in the fight ending submission.



Shoot Boxing Women’s Flyweight Champion Rena Kubota battled back from early adversity and kept her perfect MMA record intact with a crushing win tonight at Rizin Fighting Federation World Grand Prix 2017 in Fukuoka, Japan. Kubota finished Andy “The CrAsian” Nguyen in the main event.

Tonight’s 49kg Women’s Super Atomweight Grand Prix headliner almost did not take place, as Nguyen failed to make weight and ultimately forfeited a percentage of her fight purse. In the end, Kubota advanced to the semi-finals along with three other female fighters who earned key wins tonight.

Italian standout Mara “Kunoichici” Romero Borella made a big statement in her short-notice Octagon debut tonight at UFC 216: “Ferguson vs Lee” in Las Vegas, Nevada. Romero Borella dominated and submitted Titan FC champion Kalindra Faria in featured flyweight action on the main card.

Stepping in to replace Andrea “KGB” Lee on less than two weeks’ notice, Romero Borella extended her winning streak to four with tonight’s impressive showing. Also on the UFC 216 card, XFC champ Poliana Botelho picked up her first UFC victory by defeating Pearl Gonzalez at strawweight.

Former Invicta FC champion Barb “Little Warrior” Honchak showed no signs of ring rust in her dominant win during tonight’s sixth episode of The Ultimate Fighter 26: “A New World Champion.” Honchak earned Team Alvarez’s third victory by stopping Gillian “The Savage” Robertson of Team Gaethje.

Honchak, who had not fought since successfully defending her Invicta FC Flyweight Championship in November 2014, showed why she is considered as a favourite to win TUF 26 with her performance tonight. She overcame Robertson’s submission attempts en route to a second-round TKO triumph.

Skilled grappler Sijara “Sarj” Eubanks advanced on to the next round with a dominant victory during tonight’s fifth episode of The Ultimate Fighter 26: “A New World Champion.” Team Alvarez’s Eubanks easily dispatched of Team Gaethje fighter Maia Kahaunaele-Stevenson with a second-round kimura.

Eubanks, who felt that her #12 ranking was not indicative of her talent, struggled with a tough weight cut but ultimately made weight for her fight. She proved that she was a far superior fighter to the #5-ranked Stevenson and controlled the bout on the mat before securing the submission finish.

Gadelha, who also previously challenged unsuccessfully for the UFC Women’s Strawweight Championship, got off to a strong start in round one, but she was soundly beaten on the feet and on the ground as the bout progressed. Also tonight, Syuri Kondo edged out Chanmi “Ottogi Girl” Jeon.
