Fatigue became a factor as the bout progressed, making Gadelha a stationary target for an elite striker like Jedrzejczyk, who showcased her full stand-up arsenal by delivering staggering combinations and damaging jabs.

Jedrzejczyk now holds the only two wins over Gadelha in her MMA career, having also picked up a split decision in 2014.

Gadelha's biggest plus was the takedown ability that started in the first and with the knockdown, the round clearly belonged to her. "To finally do it and live out my dream and get my hand raised, it's just that much better." llied with her superior striking and remarkable conditioning.

Jedrzejczyk battered Gadelha with kicks, elbows and punches in the final three rounds, leaving her Brazilian opponent bloody and open-mouthed.

Will Brooks makes his long awaited UFC debut against Ross Pearson on the main card.

"A lot of fighters wash out in three or four fights, (but) I think once you get to 10 fights in the UFC you've proven you belong", Miller said.

Coming off a dominant decision win over Valrie Letourneau at UFC 193 in Melbourne previous year, Jedrzejczyk will now be eager to close the chapter in her life involving bitter rival Claudia Gadelha. Let's take a look at the picks and predictions for "The Ultimate Fighter 23" Finale and be sure to share your thoughts in the comments section below. The score wasn't reflective of the battle this fight was, Gadelha putting the champ on the ropes and forcing Jedrzejczyk to dig deep to pull out the win.

'I really respect her and her skills but it's time to prove once more to her, her coaches and her team that I am the only one at strawweight. "I can see what I can expect - if she's afraid or not". Strawweight Tatiana Suarez and light heavyweight Andrew Sanchez won their bouts to claim the UFC contracts awarded to winners of the reality show.

A first-round D'Arce choke earned Tatiana Suarez the victory and entry into the Ultimate Fighter Clubhouse as the victor of Season 23's strawweight competition.

Doo Ho Choi has once again shown the world that he's a future featherweight superstar by decimating the ever-dangerous Thiago Tavares.

Round 5: Jedrzejczyk walked across the cage to try and shake hands Gadelha before the round, Gadelha didn't welcome it. Gadelha pushed forward, but Jedrzejczyk landed as she backed away.

"Yes, I got exhausted", she conceded.

Gadelha (13-2) came out in the opening seconds Friday and briefly dropped Jedrzejczyk with a left. I knew she was going to come out strong.

As for what's next, Gadelha didn't ask for a rematch, but she is ready to get back to the work. Brooks is eyeing Alvarez's title, and likely only needs a couple victories to get a shot at him given his track record.

While there were a couple technical mistakes that can be corrected with more experience, the raw skills are there for Suarez, who took Amanda Cooper down easily, scrambled well and swiftly sunk in the fight-ending choke when the opportunity presented itself.
