3- Anthony Smith x Vitor Petrino – UFC 301

In addition to 'breaking the bank' and giving the Brazilian public a cold shower, Anthony Smith secured the third position on our list with the finish over Victor Petrino No. UFC 301, in Rio de Janeiro.


Experienced, the North American took advantage of a mistake from Minas Gerais and used a guillotine choke to get the victory in the first round.

2- Angela Hill x Luana Pinheiro – UFC Las Vegas 92

For everything there is a first time. In the 30th fight of his career, Angela Hill achieved her first submission as an MMA fighter in UFC Las Vegas 92, on May 18th.

Also with a guillotine, but from mount, the American veteran surprised the Brazilian Luana pinheiro and achieved victory in the final minute of the second round.

1- Michel Pereira x Ihor Potieria – UFC 301

If in the two previous finishes the victims were Brazilians, the 'gold', on the other hand, belongs to Brazil. On the main card of UFC 301, Michael Pereira gave one more show and finished Ihor Potieria with a guillotine in less than a minute, but not before performing a somersault on his opponent lying on the ground.
