Submission! Watch Andrea Lee tap out Antonina Shevchenko at UFC 262

Andrea Lee captured the biggest win of her career earlier tonight (Sat., May 15, 2021) at UFC 262 live on ESPN+ PPV from inside Toyota Center in Houston, Tex., when she finished veteran fighter Antonina Shevchenko via second-round submission (triangle armbar).

Lee looked good from the opening bell as she was able to land some sold strikes and go toe-to-toe with Shevchenko, who relied heavily on her Muay Thai clinch. At the start of Round 2 Lee was able to rush in and score top control during a transition to the mat. She worked a triangle choke for nearly three minutes before switching her position and slapping in the triangle armbar with moments left in the round.

Lee was 3-3 in UFC competition without any finishes coming into this “Prelims” affair so this was a massive win for her stock in the women’s flyweight division. This submission win should land “KGB” a top 10 opponent her next time as she tries to regain her momentum towards title contention.
