Germaine de Randamie (6-3) defeated Ann Elmose (3-1) by technical knockout in the opening round inside Ahoy Rotterdam, after delivering a huge knee to the body of Elmose.

The official time of the stoppage came at 3:46 of the first round.

Netherland's own, de Randamie clinched up Elmose to begin the bout, but the Denmark fighter was able to tie up the No,14-ranked UFC women's bantamweight along the fence. de Randamie began to utilize her huge reach advantage and landed a few blows before Elmose dove in on an unsuccessful takedown attempt.

From there the end was merely moments away. The Dutch striker locked Elmose in the clinch and delivered a brutal knee to the midsection of "Panda," which sent her crumpling to the canvas. Referee Rich Mitchell immediately stepped in to wave the bout off.

De Randamie, 32, took care of business in emphatic fashion and her stock will only rise, as she continues to prove she is one of the most dangerous strikers in the division. "The Iron Lady" improves to 3-1 in UFC competition.

In her UFC debut, Elmose, 31, tastes defeat for the first time in her career.
