UFC 270 had many fights fall apart in lead up to the event. And while we’re all curious about the main card prelims fighters are still delivering.
One particularly funny case is the fight Vanessa Demopoulos won after getting dropped with a big punch. The entirety of the fight played out in the very first round.

And if you thought that’s where the fun tidbits about this fight end – guess again. Post fight the winner revealed:
Vanessa Demopoulos, who defeated Silvana Gomez Juarez by first-round sub, said a lot of her expertise in jiu-jitsu comes from her time as a pole dancer. #UFC270
