Besides Bellator 275 and PFL Challenger, there was also a pretty solid LFA card happening as well. During the 125 card Jacqueline Amorim battled with Loveth Young.
Loveth Young reminded us of an old Kenny Florian cheat when she went and grabbed the fence with Both arms in order to prevent a takedown from Amorim.
Of course this was nothing but a feeble attempt all things considered – she got a point docked from her for the gross infraction.

The fight soon restarted and Amorim got dropped. But she more than made up for it on the ground when she applie a painful looking armbar to the leg of the cheater.

Amorim had captured the title at LFA with this performance. It’s more than likely she’s headed to the UFC after this performance – UFC hasn’t let a champion in LFA defend the title in a hot minute.
