MMA beauty Rachel Wray was cool and composed on Jan. 25 during her fight against Katelyn Radtka at the Voodoo Lounge at Harrah's Casino in Kansas City, Missouri, as she earned a ref stoppage in the second round.
The official decision was Wray via second-round submission via strikes. "So happy #HWPO," Wray posted via Twitter following the victory.
The opening frame was a bit of a feeling out process, as Wray seemed poised to utilize the jab to find her range.
Wray opened up her hands as the first round wound down, finding a home with solid combinations that landed flush on Radtka's face.
It seems clear that Radtka was still rattled heading into round two, and Wray took advantage by landing low leg kicks to set up the right cross.
Wray had her opponent on the defensive throughout the second frame, and Radtka desperately tried to take the fight to the mat after she was shaken by a solid kick to the body with two minutes left in the second round.
Wray utilized a gorgeous sprawl after a double-leg takedown attempt, and then peppered away at Radtka's face while she was still trying to get back to her feet.
Radtka finally got back to a standing position, but Wray blasted her with four straight right crosses to the face to earn the ref stoppage midway through the second round.
Wray did a great job keeping her emotions in check, as she came into the fight apparently pissed off at her opponent for her actions during the pre-fight weigh-ins.
"Last night at weigh ins, my opponent and her lil friend decided to make this personal. Great idea!! Now she gets to fight pissed off Rachel," Wray wrote on Twitter.
Wray didn't let emotions get the best of her, as she developed a smart gameplan and stuck to it.
Including Wray's victory, the HDMMA team went 3-0 on the night.
