Round 1: Herb Dean the referee. Cooper to center, and she throws a left. Calvillo comes in and lands a nice right hand. Copper comes over top wit ha right as Calvillo tries a leg kick. Inside leg kick from Calvillo, the TAM fighter. Nice sequence there from Calvillo, who lands a nice up-top combination, ending with a right low kick. Now Calvillo catches a kick, and drags Cooper to the canvas. Crazy scramble there, and they somersault through, and tumble, and Calvillo lands on top. Now she's rolling for an anaconda, can't get it — but still has her back. Calvillo looks great out there! Calvillo trying to sink the rear-naked choke, has the full body lock — and now she sinks the choke, and Cooper turns to her belly....and it's still deep...that's it. There's the tap. Wow. Calvillo looked absolutely amazing in that debut.
