Early on, Chandler (5-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) was thrown on her back by Stoliarenko(10-7-1 MMA, 1-5 UFC), forcing her to defend her arms and legs against armbar attempts.
Later in the first round, Chandler started to gain the upper hand, stringing together strong punches and finally working her way into full mount, where she unleashed merciless ground and pound until the referee stopped the fight at 4:15.
She had previously defeated Courtney King by unanimous decision at Invicta FC 47 in May, therefore Chandler’s UFC debut victory was her second of 2022 and fifth overall.
Stoliarenko had been riding high after submitting Jessica-Rose Clark in the first round, but she suffered her fifth defeat in the Ultimate Fighting Championship on Saturday.
