On Sunday night, the UFC touched down in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma with UFC Fight Night 112. The fourth fight of this event’s six-fight main card occurred at strawweight, where established veteran Felice Herrig took on the gritty Justine Kish.
This one was all Herrig. Though Kish showcased all the boundless heart for which she’s become known, she simply could not keep up with her veteran foe on the mat. By the time the third round was over, Herrig had wracked up 9:22 of control time, and landed more than 100 significant strikes. She also nearly finished the fight with a deep-looking rear naked choke. Needless to say, she left Oklahoma City with a unanimous decision win.

Kish, meanwhile, loses for the first time as a pro mixed martial artist. She’s now 6-1 in sum.
