Video: Gillian Robertson needs just 65 seconds to tap out Rose Namajunas in Fury Pro Grappling 6 main event


UFC flyweight Gillian Robertson needed just 65 seconds to finish ex-strawweight champion Rose Namajunas in the main event at Fury Pro Grappling 6.

Namaunas and Robertson squared off in the headliner on Saturday, Dec. 30, under the Fury Pro Grappling banner, which is a part of the CFFC MMA promotion. The event took place at 2300 Arena in Philadelphia.

The matchup was scheduled for 10 minutes but Robertson wasted no time dragging Namajunas to the ground, taking her back and moving into position to lock on the rear-naked choke submission.

Once Robertson had her arm under the chin, she secured the hold and the grimace on Namajunas’ face told the whole story as she quickly tapped out before potentially being choked out from the submission.

It was an impressive showing from Robertson, who also holds the record for the most submission wins (6) in the history of the women’s divisions in the UFC.

In the co-main event on the card, Chase Hooper was able to apply a nasty calf-slicer submission to get the win over fellow UFC veteran Clay Guida.

Another matchup between UFC fighters saw Pat Sabatini lock on a rear-naked choke to tap out Alex Caceres.

The card also featured the return of retired UFC heavyweight Pat Barry to competition as he took to the mats for a grappling match but ultimately came up short by decision after falling to Jon Pellot.
