Bantamweights Daria Zhelezniakova and Montserrat Rendon went the distance in a clash of styles on Saturday’s prelims.

In the striking exchanges, the Russian newcomer was the cleaner, more effective of the two, but in the clinch and grappling exchanges, Rendon showed her advantages. Neither woman was able to grab clear control of the contest at any point, with the duo instead trading moments in all three rounds, leaving it to the judges to decide.

All three judges saw the fight the same, awarding Zhelezniakova the unanimous decision win in her promotional debut, lifting her to 9-1 overall as a professional.
