LAS VEGAS – Loopy Godinez put on quite the show on Saturday night.
The UFC women’s strawweight dominated Elise Reed and then finished her with a rear-naked choke in the preliminary card of Noche UFC at T-Mobile Arena.
Godinez (10-3 MMA, 5-3 UFC) dropped Reed (7-3 MMA, 3-3 UFC) and nearly submitted her with an armbar in the first round. Although Reed would see out the round, things only got worse in the second frame. Godinez continued to light up Reed on the feet and eventually took the fight to the ground to win by submission from a tight rear-naked choke.

With this win, the 30-year-old is now on a three-fight winning streak and 5-1 in her past six fights. This was her first full camp under Lobo Gym alongside UFC women’s flyweight champion Alexa Grasso.
