Esther Lin, MMA Fighting

At UFC 159, Sheila Gaff came flying out of the gate against Sara McMann, only to be quickly taken down en route to losing via first-round finish.

So you can be excused for feeling a sense of deja vu if you watched Gaff's Saturday's UFC 163 fight against Amanda Nunes. Gaff came out flying against Nunes, but the fighter known as "The Lioness" quickly turned the tide.

A takedown followed by a vicious series of elbows spelled doom for Gaff in their bantamweight bout at Rios HSBC Arena, as Herb Dean called off the fight for a TKO at 2:08 of the first round.

Nunes (8-3), a fearsome striker out of Salvador, Brazil, won via KO/TKO for their seventh time in her eight victories.

"She couldn't beat me in my hometown with my hometown crowd out here," Nunes said through an interpreter. "I train jiu-jitsu and judo with the best guys there is, and the best guys for ground and pound. That's it."

Gaff (10-6-1) became the first women's fighter to go 0-2 in the UFC.
