    The brief faceoff took place in Shawnee, Oklahoma on Friday as part of the Legacy Fighting Alliance (LFA) tournament. The bout was a co-main event alongside the main fight between Venezuela’s Pierangela Rodriguez and Ukraine's Svetlana Gotsyk competing for a strawweight title.

    US mixed martial arts fighter Canaan Kawaihae defeated his compatriot Jake Childers in an LFA bout on Friday.

    Kawaihae wrapped up the battle with a "ninja choke" against his opponent, who was forced to submit after just 20 seconds of the first round.

    ​The bout was Kawaihae's debut in the LFA and his sixth victory over the course of his career. He has previously taken part in events such as Bellator, Destiny MMA, Smash Global, and has only been defeated once.
