UFC on ABC 4 video: Tainara Lisboa taps Jessica-Rose Clark to cap off impressive debut
Tainara Lisboa’s UFC debut was an impressive one.
A new addition to the women’s bantamweight division, Lisboa (6-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC) showed a wide range of skills against Jessica-Rose Clark. Whether it was on the feet with sharp striking, or on the mat flexing her BJJ skills, Lisboa proved she can do a little bit of everything en route to her submission of Clark (11-9 MMA, 4-5 UFC) at 4:20 of Round 3.
Lisboa had Clark in trouble at many points throughout the fight. She rocked Clark with punching combinations and forced her opponent to defend a deep armbar for a lengthy period. Even with the fight firmly in her grasp with time running out, Lisboa kept hunting for a finish, and was able to tap Clark with just 40 seconds remaining in the fight.
