UFC Fighter Grant Dawson Takes On Two Female Fighters In Grappling Contest And Wins

UFC fighter Grant Dawson faced off with girlfriend Elle Wagman and Laura Sanko in a 2v1 grappling match and came out on top.

Surprisingly, it's Dawson who manages to stand tall despite the effort put in from Wagman and Sanko.

The 37-year-old's tweet reads:

'UFC FW @dawsongrant20y1 said he could beat his girlfriend and fellow atomweight Elle Wagman and me at the same time in a grappling match ...turns out he was right.'

The duo of Wagman and Sanko start the grappling strong and manage to get the 25-year-old down to the mat.

An unnamed commentator of the contest even states:

'This is not a good spot for Grant.'

However, he manages to rise of from the mat and attempts to keep his distance away from the tandem.

Their main offense seemed to be attacking the Nebraska native from the top and then taking out his legs and then piling on him when grounded.

However, eagle eyed viewers managed to spot that the girls neglected any kind of heel hooks to keep their opponent grounded.

Sanko replied to the tweet and agreed with the sentiment.


The sparring ends when Dawson manages to rise to his feet and get his two opponents down into separate armbars.

They both tap which manages to give 'The Prophet' the victory.

Intergender MMA fights have been a hot topic for years, but legendary fighter Ronda Rousey is against the idea.

Rousey's dominance in women's MMA at one point had fans mulling over the idea of a man fighting against her.

During an interview with The Daily Beast, the UFC legend slammed the idea of a man beating up a woman on television.

"I don't think it's a great idea to have a man hitting a woman on television," she said.

"I'll never say that I'll lose, but you could have a girl getting totally beat up on TV by a guy -- which is a bad image to put across.

"With all the football [domestic violence] stuff that's been happening, not a good idea.

"It's fun to theorise about and talk about, but it's something that's much better in theory than fact."
