Amanda Lemos scored a much needed finish at UFC Long Island. After getting submitted by Jessica Andrade in her last outing, the Brazilian turned it around by tapping out Michelle Waterson-Gomez with a guillotine choke. On Twitter, pro fighters and pundits reacted to the performance.

Props to Waterson-Gomez for admitting she tapped.— Nick Baldwin (@NickBaldwinMMA) July 16, 2022
She prob. could've gotten away with that.
That Lemos power is something else. That’s a big way to bounce back over a vet like Michelle. #UFCLongIsland— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) July 16, 2022
Wow. Waterson-Gomez tapped out, the referee Kevin MacDonald didn't see it and Lemos stopped the choke. MacDonald didn't stop the fight, but Waterson-Gomez admitted she tapped and that was the finish. #UFCLongIsland— Marc Raimondi (@marcraimondi) July 16, 2022
