The two first-time UFC fighters stole the show at UFC San Diego, standing in the pocket and trading shots for three rounds in front of a raucous Pechanga Arena crowd. Jauregui won a unanimous decision to remain undefeated at 9-0, but both fighters look to have bright futures if Saturday’s performance is any indication.
Their fellow fighters lavished the bout with praise on social media, complimenting both Jauregui and Lucindo (just 23 and 20 years old, respectively). Cody Stamann called the contest “the best debut fight I’ve ever seen,” while other UFC standouts like Walt Harris, Dominick Reyes, and Terrance McKinney tweeted out their amazement as the bout was happening.
Even legendary UFC brawler Chris Leben was wowed, writing, “These ladies are slanging heat!”
