It all went down during the co-main event between Jessica Andrade and Katlyn Chookagian. They fought behind-closed-doors Saturday at the Flash Forum on Fight Island, a quarantined area the Abu Dhabi culture and tourism board purpose-built in conjunction with the UFC.

Andrade made history by becoming the first woman in the UFC to win in three separate weight classes when she defeated Chookagian in the opening round of their 125-pound bout.

Chookagian had advantages of height and reach but Andrade ensured that mattered little by closing the distance between the fighters, engaging in clinches against the fence, and dragging her opponent to the ground.

Andrade varied her strikes. She landed shots on Chookagian's head and body in equal measure, setting up a buzzer-beating finish.
