Amber Stautzenberger Submits Summer Artherton At Dakota FC 14Amber “The Apex Predator” Stautzenberger picked up her first pro victory in quick and impressive fashion tonight at Dakota Fighting Championships 14: “American Dream” in Fargo, North Dakota. The Texas-based strawweight fighter submitted Summer Artherton with an armbar in just 67 seconds.

Stautzenberger wasted no time in taking her opponent down to the ground. She passed straight to mount and transitioned to the fight-ending armbar. The swift win gets Stautzenberger back on track after she dropped a close decision to “12 Gauge” Paige VanZant in her September professional debut.

Stautzenberger (1-1-0) closed the distance right away and landed a nice kick-punch combination before clinching and taking Artherton (0-2-0) down to the mat. Within seconds, Stautzenberger moved from half-guard to mount and briefly struck from the top until Artherton rolled to try to escape. Stautzenberger took advantage by latching onto Artherton’s arm and pulled back on an armbar. Artherton again tried to roll free, but she could not and was forced to submit.

Tonight’s win was Stautzenberger’s first as a professional and first at 115 pounds. She amassed a 4-3 record as an amateur against formidable opposition in bouts that were primarily contested at weights above 120 pounds.

Winner: Amber Stautzenberger by Submission (Armbar) at 1:07 of round one. She improves to 1-1-0.
