Post-fight Martin told FIGHTMAG that she couldn’t be happier with her performance.

“It was an amazing experience. I couldn’t be happier with my performance. I was so nervous before the fight, but I listened to my coach Kieran [Walsh] and ended up finishing the fight in the first round,” said Martin.

The last day of competition is held on Sunday featuring the nine-fight bill. The results can be found on IFMA website.
