Alpar defeated Shanna Young via submission (rear-naked choke) at 2:55 of Round 2 at Dana White's Tuesday Night Contender Series. She was one of three fighters to earn a UFC contract following the event.
Alpar entered this fight a slight betting underdog in roughly the (+115) range, but overcame a back-and-forth first round to take charge in the second. She did absorb a bit of damage early, but the aggressiveness of her opponent allowed Alpar to slip in for a body lock that was eventually converted into a takedown. She displayed excellent grappling from there, taking the back of her opponent and getting the finish. Alpar is a bit small for bantamweight standing at 5-4 with a 63-inch reach, so it comes as little surprise that after the fight White implied a move down to flyweight would be forthcoming.
