The first round started at a furious tempo and both fighters landed good shots. Modig secured a takedown but was not able to hold Antinmaa down for long.

Halfway into the second round Modig secured a takedown and controlled her opponent for the remaining time.

The third round continued in the same high pace with a takedown for the Swede. Modig pressed Antinmaa against the cage and landed heavy ground and pound in the end of the round.

This marked the former world cup- and Swedish MMA champs sixth amateur victory, and we all eagerly await her professional debut, which for sure is soon to come. Or is it?
