Paige VanZant loses final UFC fight in first round as dominant Amanda Ribas gets arm bar win
12th July 2020

PAIGE VANZANT lost her final fight in the UFC with a disappointing display against Amanda Ribas.

Brazilian Ribas dominated from start to finish, scoring a first round submission win, securing an arm bar after great work on the ground.

VanZant was always going to tap after three arm breaks in recent years.

The 26-year-old is expected to leave the promotion after nine fights with the company.

The fans' favourite has been unhappy – and vocal – about the lack of money she has been making in the UFC.

She arrived for the fight looking overcome with emotion and close to tears as as she made her way to the octagon on Fight Island.

But VanZant was well overmatched and it showed from the first bell.

For the impressive Ribas it is another signature win.

The delighted winner said: "Thank you to the UFC for giving me the opportunity to fight here and do my work.

"I think this fight proves no matter where you are or who you are, what matters is what you do with your life.

"I have a big heart and I put all my energy in here to do my best."
