Polyana Viana reminded everyone just how exciting she could be with a first-minute knockout over Jinh Yu Frey during the prelims of UFC Vegas 64.
Polyana Viana was only 3-4 in the Octagon heading into UFC Vegas 64, but all three wins were finishes that came in the very first round. After a unanimous decision loss to Tabatha Ricci that Viana found to be less than satisfying snapped a two-fight first-round submission streak, Viana looked to get back on track against talented former Invicta FC champion Jinh Yu Frey.
Frey has had her ups and downs since joining the UFC. She lost in her first two appearances with the promotion then defeated both Gloria De Paula and Ashley Yoder in succession. A close split decision loss against Vanessa Demopoulos sent her back to the losing column.
Viana was not messing around when the bell rang. Immediately, she pushed the pace against Frey. Frey ate a hard knee to the body that stunned her and Viana took full advantage. A clean left hand rocked Frey and Viana followed up with a right that sent Frey stumbling. A lengthy combination finished the fight as the referee stepped in before Frey hit the ground. A stoppage in less than a minute was exactly what Viana was seeking after a decision loss.
