Ailin Perez secured a huge win at UFC Vegas 77 when she outclassed Ashlee Evans Smith.

Perez established a new UFC women's bantamweight record by executing 10 successful takedowns, surpassing the previous record of eight held by recently retired former dual champion Amanda Nunes.

Now, after setting the record, Ailin shared her happiness on Instagram by using a Khabib Nurmagomedov-related hashtag.

“I guess I am an All-American wrestler now, #AilinNurmagomedov #10Takedowns15Minutes,” Ailin noted on her Instagram page.

During her post-fight interview, Ailin also talked about her fight with Ashlee Evans Smith.

“I’m always thankful for my opponents for stepping up and being across from me. … I’m used to having fights fall off, so I was very respectful. She’s a tough girl, and people underestimated her. People actually said, ‘You’re going to kill this girl. She’s off rhythm. She hasn’t fought in a long time.’ Just the fact that she actually stepped up in her will to train and to actually step into this fight, that’s something in and of itself,” Ailin noted.

She also spoke highly of her opponent.

“Ashlee showed she has a giant heart, and I had seen it in her fights. People underestimated her a lot, or told me, ‘You’re going to kill her.’ But her desire to want to beat me is also going to get her out of position, which is what she showed today,” she added.

The Argentine fighter bounced back strongly from her last loss and will be looking to continue the momentum in her upcoming opportunity.
