Liz Carmouche became the first ever MMA fighter to step into the Octagon and win at Madison Square Garden, New York. She made sure everyone remembered the name Girl-Rilla with a MONSTEROUS body slam.

Take a look at Carmouche lifting Chookagian off the canvas into the air then slamming her into the mat, shaking Madision Square Garden.

Here it is in destructive real time.

Fans were on the edge of their seat when early in the third round, Chookagian stepped up her game and forced Carmouche into a real danger zone, but despite the sudden surge of aggression on Chookagian's part, she was not able to secure the finish.

Carmouche trudged through three rounds with Katlyn Chookagian to secure the split decision victory (29-28, 28-29, 29-28).
