LAS VEGAS – Once she got Jessica Rakoczy on her back, it was smooth sailing for Julianna Pena, who posted a first-round TKO victory to win “The Ultimate Fighter 18.”

The bout co-headlined the TUF 18 Finale on Saturday in Las Vegas.

Pena (5-2 MMA, 1-0 UFC), who gave head coach Miesha Tate two “TUF 18? winners on the night, took Team Rousey’s Rakoczy (1-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC) to the mat and simply overwhelmed her with a ground-and-pound assault once there. It led to a TKO victory with just one second remaining in the first round.

Check out the video highlights above.
