Awesome fight girls ------------ congrats @wmmarz— Amanda Nunes (@Amanda_Leoa) October 9, 2021
That arm was about to go home with Dern! Run grappling exchanges and big GnP! 1-1 going into the 3rd for me. #UFCVegas39— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) October 9, 2021
Some feints would’ve done Dern well in this fight. Too much chasing and predictable attacks for Rodriguez to read and cut angles out of danger. Fun fight still. Both ladies showed some serious threats in both their worlds of experience #UFCVegas39— Aljamain Sterling (@funkmasterMMA) October 9, 2021

Marina is a baaaad woman— Belal Muhammad (@bullyb170) October 9, 2021
