The women’s strawweight fighters were matched for the first time in 2016, when Kubota was a novice with only one fight (a win) on her record. A first-round guillotine choke by Kubota submitted Yamamoto, who was making her pro debut.

Over the weekend, Kubota ensured there was no case for revenge as she scored a repeat result, though this time she finished Yamamoto with strikes, rather than a submission.

It almost went against the momentum of the match as Yamamoto performed well in the opening round with a control of the fight on the ground.

But she unraveled in the second when Kubota caught her with a knee that was timed so well, the live camera angle did not do it justice.

With the win, Kubota advanced her pro MMA record to 12 wins (seven knockouts, two submissions, and three decisions) against three losses.
