Jauregui looked good in her Octagon debut earlier this year in a unanimous decision win over Iasmin Lucindo, but she was on an entirely different level this evening in Orlando. Not only did Jauregui score multiple knockdowns, but her ground-and-pound was on point. In the end, Nunes got battered at almost every turn and could not continue after a barrage of ground strikes by Jauregui in the second round.

Jauregui, who is just 23 years of age, pushed her undefeated professional MMA record to 10-0 with this TKO win. Despite being so young and relatively inexperienced, Jauregui already seems like a legit contender at 115 pounds. The fact that she can help UFC expand its reach to Mexican females is simply icing on the cake.
