The finish came in the third when Lemos belted Rodriguez with a big overhand right to the temple that had the 2 to 1 favorite stumbling back toward the cage. Lemos followed up with a barrage of punches leading the referee to halt the action. The loss ends Rodriguez's four fight win streak while Lemos has now won seven of her last eight as she inches closer to a title shot.
The co-main event saw Neil Magny submit Daniel Rodriguez with a third round D'arce choke to pass welterweight legend Georges St. Pierre for the most wins in division history with 20.
