UFC Long Island Results: Amanda Lemos submits Michelle Waterson-Gomez with a guillotine

In the co-main event of UFC Long Island, the promotion's #11-ranked strawweight, Amanda Lemos, returned to her career-winning streak with a second-round guillotine victory over #10-ranked Michelle Waterson-Gomez.

Interestingly enough, the Brazilian used his slick grappling to catch "The Karate Hottie" in a guillotine choke and force the tap at the 1:48 mark of round 2. But the referee missed the tap, Lemos released the hold without getting in the middle of the referee, and Waterson-Gomez respectfully conceded the match. After losing her last match via standing arm triangle, Lemos gained some redemption by getting a sub of her own.

A lot of feel and range with kicks and jabs opened up the action at UBS Arena on Saturday. As the round progressed, Waterson-Gomez circled the outside of the big, long lemos. Lemos timed her first takedown well, switching levels and moving forward with about a minute left in the round, putting Waterson-Gomez on his back.

Round two started with Watterson throwing more kicks and working to stay out of Lemos' range. When they came together afterwards, Lemous caught Waterson-Gomez in a guillotine, threatened to roll her into the mount - and forced a tap! Lemouse drops the choke, but the ref doesn't see the tap, and initially makes no move to end the fight. However, Watterson-Gomez conceded the tap, signaling the end of the fight.

Official result: Amanda Lemos def. Michelle Waterson-Gomez via submission (guillotine choke), round 2, 1:48
