Coming into the fight, the 26-year-old Amorim had earned all of her career victories by submission. She put the first knockout on her record against Owen, and it couldn’t have come in more spectacular fashion.
“It feels great,” Amorim said in her post-fight interview with Alan Jouban. “I always knew I had power, I was just waiting for the right moment to show I’m not just a grappler. I can throw hands, too.”
