Felicia Spencer vs. Zarah Fairn didn’t last long.
The two fighters met in a women’s featherweight bout at the UFC Norfolk event on Saturday night (February 29, 2020) from the Chartway Arena in Norfolk, Virginia that aired on ESPN’s streaming service, ESPN+.
Spencer didn’t waste any time in getting a takedown then landing a series of strikes from top position and scoring the TKO win in the first-round.
Peep the highlights of the fight courtesy of the UFC’s official Twitter account:
Spencer had her 7-fight winning streak snapped by Cris Cyborg at the UFC 240 pay-per-view event from the Rogers Place in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In her previous fight, Spencer beat former Invicta FC women’s featherweight champion Megan Anderson by rear-naked choke at UFC Rochester which marked her promotional debut.
Fairn had a three-fight winning streak going with two wins coming by TKO and a decision win to earn a UFC contract. That streak was broken when she lost to Meagan Anderson by submission at the UFC 243 pay-per-view from Sydney, Australia at the Marvel Stadium.
