Amanda Nunes vs. Megan Anderson - Round 1
Feeling out process. Anderson then gets whacked with a right hand as I say that. Big right hand by Nunes and Anderson is rocked. Didn’t check the leg kick and Anderson goes for a takedown (????) and Nunes puts her on her back. She lands ground strikes and is angling for a submission. Triangle armbar and that’s a wrap. Nunes barely broke a sweat.
