Ji Yeon Kim vs Priscila Cachoeira

Round 1: Cachoeira threw some big shots early on but Kim landed some of her own to keep the round evenly matched. Both fighters kept exchanging fists with no intention of taking the fight to the groun until the Brazilian took Kim down in the final 10 seconds. Too little, too late, as the bell saved the Korean fighter.
