Video: Woman “TKO’s” Man In MMA Fight In Brazil

When I first saw the title, I thought some “Cyborg” type chick beat up some poor fellow in the cage. Further review of the story, that wasn’t the case.

Larissa Schroeder was scheduled to make her amateur MMA debut in a featherweight bout at Evolution SF Fight in Sao Francisco de Paula, Rio Grande do Sul, on March 28. However, hours before the event, her opponent decided not to fight. That’s when Schroeder’s coach Cristiano Benedetto had an idea.

“I asked her if she wanted to fight Fernando Lemos, who is her training partner in my gym, so she would know how it feels like to fight in a cage,” Benedetto told “They are training partners and are used to spar. I don’t think it was a big deal. That’s what they do every day in the gym. It was almost a demonstration.”

“As soon as she hit Fernando and blood started to come out of his nose, the fight was over,” Benedetto said. “The referee was a friend of mine and I asked him to stop if one of them got hurt. It was just a one-round fight. No big deal. People are trying to make it sound a big deal in Brazil because I joked about it on Facebook, saying that she knocked out a man and was ready to sign with the UFC. No big deal, man.”
