Carano and Young went toe-to-toe for the first two rounds until the doctors declared the fight stoppage. Carano landed big punches early on the first round and even took Young to the mat for some ground fight. Young responded with some solid punches and kicks of her own.
The second round started well for both fighters exchanging sound kicks and punches. Midway of the second round, Carano landed a big punch square on Young‘s face.

A kick sent Young to the ground and Carano attempted to do a rear-naked choke as the time expired. Young‘s face was a mess at the end of the second round and doctors declared the stoppage of the bout.
