1952

Last month, we wrote about Anne Veriato — the transgender woman who was planning on facing a man in her mixed martial arts debut.

Well, Anne faced that man, and she won.

Veriato faced Railson Paixao in a strawweight bout at Mr. Cage 34, which took place in Manaus, Brazil.

According to MMA Fighting, Veriato spent the majority of the fight working her submissions. This should come as no surprise considering her background in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. However, she also connected with good shots while standing.

She won the match via decision.
