Talita Nogueira vs. Jessica Flowers

After some wrestling on the feet, Nogueira pulled guard and moved to spider guard as Flowers tried to pass. The competitors stayed locked in this passing battle for some time, with Flowers applying heavy pressure to try to fight Nogueira’s formidable guard. With about three and a half minutes left, Flowers stayed dedicated to her pressure passing and finally managed to get past Nogueira’s legs, staying safe from a loop choke attempt in the process. Flowers worked her way around and went for a kimura, which Nogueira defended, and then Nogueira moved into deep half-guard. Flowers stayed on top with heavy pressure, but Nogueira was able to reguard. Nogueira went for a triangle, and Flowers used the opportunity to force her opponent into the turtle. With just seconds left to go, Flowers brought Nogueira back to a seated position right before the clock ran out.

Flowers was awarded the unanimous decision.
