Larissa Pacheco wasted little time declaring six points towards the PFL’s post season, sending Bobbi Jo Dalziel within a round.
Canada’s Bobbi Jo Dalziel was set to deal with Larissa Pacheco of Brazil in ladies’s lightweight action at PFL 2019 Week 4. The program went down in Atlantic City, NJ on Thursday night, and was billed as PFL 4, with the promotion resetting the count for 2019.
Larissa Pacheco had a remarkable start to her MMA profession, going 10-0 with six submissions and four knockouts. Included in that run was a triumph over existing UFC bantamweight Irene Aldana. She was then signed by the UFC, where matchmaking was not in her favor. In her two Octagon looks, she fell to current champion Jessica Andrade and former champ Germaine de Randamie. After a submission win outside the promotion, she was welcomed onto The Ultimate Fighter 28, where again, she lost to ultimate season winner, Macy Chissaon. She’s trying to find her very first points of the PFL season after losing to Kayla Harrison previously this year.
Bobbi-Jo Dalziel comes into PFL 4 2019 undefeated through 5 career battles, consisting of a three-point success over Genah Fabian earlier this season. Her four wins prior to that include a 30-second head kick knockout and a pair of TKO blockages.
The Brazilian pushed the action early in this lightweight scrap, moving in, with Dalziel deciding to a clinch. Whether she fell back or pulled guard, Dalziel wound up with Pacheco landing on top. In half guard, Pacheco worked to improve position, which she did, working her way to mount. Dalziel attempted to control her oppponent’s hands till Pacheco lastly found some space to drop a little ground n’ pound. While the Canadian would make it through that, Pacheco would lock on with an arm-bar. The tap quickly followed, and the females’s lightweights rapidly had 2 straight preliminary finishes in on the night.
For Pacheco, she had actually clinched a playoff area– and the Dalziel loss paved the way for Genah Fabian to join the post-season as well.
