UFC Fight Night 48 took place on August 23, 2014 in Macau, China. Milana Dudieva used grappling to eek out a decision over Elizabeth Phillips.

 

Phillips was the rangier of the two and looked to use her reach advantage early on by skirting out of Dudieva’s range and attacking from there. However, Dudieva used her unusual wale overhand strakes to close the distance where she was able to capitalize on her judo.

Phillips seemed to be the heavier on the ground when it went there, but Dudieva always worked well off her back, defending Phillips’ ground and pound by tying her up. While it wasn’t the most exciting fight of the night, both women showed their strengths well.
