Chookagian beats Shevchenko. We didn't hear that in February when Katlyn challenged Valentina, but boy did Chookagian put a beating the champ's sister, Antonina. Chookagian gets takedowns in all three rounds and lands 200 strikes (64% of them on the ground) to earn a clear decision win.
Katlyn Chookagian now gets her second straight shot at the Shevchenko family. In February she lost by TKO to flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko, and this time Chookagian gets a date in the cage with older sister Antonina.
The smaller cage isn't just about finishes. The tight space also brings full-on engagement. Daniel Rodriguez and Gabe Green, the first pair tonight to go the distance, just put on the best fight of the night so far. Rodriguez wins by unanimous decison.
