This episode opens with a stellar match-up between the high-energy Lauren Fogle [0-0] and the well-trained Jessie Santos [0-0]. Jessie, still bothered by her altercation with Leon Hater at LFC26 [0-0], enters the arena with a bodyguard to keep her safe. Yes, from her coach! However, peace was made and now… on to the business of fighting. Lauren, needing to prove herself against top-notch competition, comes out determined to get the win. Jessie, whose repertoire is ever improving, does not make it easy on ‘The Animal’. In the closing seconds of the round one, Lauren’s rear-naked choke causes some consternation for the black team. Was Jessie really that close to being out? Round two opens with Lauren full of confidence; unfortunately, this provided the opening that ‘El Toro’ was waiting for. Once locked in, Jessie’s triangle choke trapped ‘The Animal’ and finished her off. Closing out the night is a fight for the vacant LFC title between Shay Mazzato [0-0] and Monica Garcia [0-0]. There is some genuine enmity here: Monica brutally beat Shay for the vacant title at LFC23 [0-0]. Shay appears stronger than in their first meeting, but Monica, dressed as a dominatrix, asserts her power game and dominates the first round. With both fighters charging out from their respective corners for round 2, the credits begin to roll. This one will be continued on our next episode.
