Erin Blanchfield took advantage of her opportunity Saturday night, submitting Jessica Andrade in the main event of UFC Fight Night.

The card took place from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, airing live on ESPN+.

In the second round, Blanchfield locked in a rear-naked choke, scoring the main event victory.

Zac Pauga, Jamal Pogues, Marcin Prachnio and Alexander Hernandez were other main card winners.

The card saw plenty of changes in recent weeks, including to the new main event. Blanchfield was to take on Taila Santos, but officials made the change to Andrade.

Originally, Marlon Vera and Cory Sandhagen were the planned headline bout, but that was scrapped, as well.
