Don’t miss a single second of face-punching action!

Despite filling in on short notice and missing weight Chiasson came out firing and tried to out-strike Pennington. She did well at first, but Pennington is tough as nails and kept the pressure up. In the second, Pennington was able to bring the action along the cage and grab a hold of Chiasson’s neck. She applied a tight guillotine choke and forced Chiasson to drop to the canvas and eventually tap.

Pennington, 34, is now 3-0 since losing to Holly Holm by decision back in 2020. The former title challenger seems to be hitting her stride once again and could very well move into the division’s top five sometime next year.
