Paulina Granados Earns Quick Submission Win At Legacy FC 20Unbeaten atomweight prospect Paulina “Firefox” Granados earned her first submission win in quick fashion tonight at Legacy Fighting Championship 20 in Corpus Christi, Texas. The hometown fan favourite needed a mere 46 seconds to defeat fellow Texan Maria Lopez with an impressive armbar.

Granados kicked off her pro career with a well-earned Unanimous Decision win in March following a 4-0 run as an amateur that was capped off by a Cage Combat 110-pound title win. All five of Granados’s previous fights had gone the distance, but she wasted no time in securing her victory tonight.


Granados (2-0-0) left a lasting impression on the partisan crowd with her slick win during the preliminary portion of the Legacy FC 20 card. She was able to get the fight with Lopez (0-1-0) to the ground early in the opening minute and immediately went to work in search of a submission. Soon after, Granados transitioned to an armbar and Lopez was forced to submit just 46 seconds into the 105-pound bout.

Tonight’s victory moves Granados one more step up the ladder in the developing atomweight division. The 25-year-old is currently one of MMA’s brightest female prospects at 105 pounds.
