Watch: Former UFC title contender gets tapped out by a 16-year-old

Check out this footage of former UFC title contender Sara McMann getting leg locked by a 16-year-old girl.

Since her switch to MMA, Sara McMann has been held in the highest of esteem by fans and media members alike. McMann, an Olympic silver medalist, began her mixed martial arts career with 7-straight wins, before being finished by the undefeated champion, Ronda Rousey. Following McMann's loss to Rousey she was eager to earn another shot at the belt, but since that lost things haven't quite gone to plan for the All-American wrestler. In her first fight back after the title shot, she took a split-decision victory against Lauren Murphy, but since then she has dropped two fights in a row. Last week things went from bad to worse for McMann, when she got tapped out in a little over a minute by 16-year old, Alexandria Enriquez.

Even though Enriquez was just a 4-year-old when McMann was winning an Olympic medal in 2004, she looked assured throughout their short match. McMann went all out in the pursuit of a guillotine choke, but winded up giving up a leg in the subsequent scramble. Enriquez managed to lock up a tight kneebar, which forced the much older and experienced grappler to tap out.

Alexandria Enriquez is one of the best prospects in the grappling world at present; she has been beating adults since she was 14. Enriquez will be looking to test her grappling chops throughout the rest of the year, to see if she can build upon this impressive victory. Sara McMann will be looking to bounce back from a disappointing year when she makes her return to the Octagon.
