Camila Rivarola (2-0) won her second pro bout, moving up a weight class to win by decision over Sandra Maskova (1-1) at XFN: Back to the O2 Arena in Prague.  “I wasn’t expected to win, it makes the victory even sweeter” posts the Swede now training with the Snake Team in France.

I got the win! And since I wasn't expected to win, it makes the victory even sweeter 🍭 😋. I won by decision against Sandra Maškova, the home fighter. A tough fight but I dominated all the rounds, taking her to the ground several times in each round. She got me with a few elbows and a couple of nice reversals that I didn't expect tho. Tough fighter and i thank her for bringing it yesterday👋🏼. I've had a hard training camp with a bunch of injuries so I'm going to take a week of well deserved rest! 😇 I want to thank @xfightnights for having me and all of you guys for the support – the sweet comments encouraging me to go to war warms my little heart❤ Most importantly if it wasn't for my coach @cyrillediabate and my team I wouldn't be where I am. A special thanks to @maxlutte and Claire for helping me out with my wrestling in this camp. And @ktraining my physical trainer. MERCI! Now I'll be focusing on ⚽️ expecting great things from 🇺🇾, 🇸🇪 and 🇫🇷 Arriba la celeste! Heja Sverige! Allez les bleues! #SnakeTeam #mma #fight #groundandpound

“I’ve never minded fighting someone on their own turf.” says the Allstars Training Center trained fighter to MMA Viking as she prepared to enter enemy territory last night.  She used takedowns to take control of the matchup and get the victory.

As an amateur, she enjoyed a successful career which saw her take home a victory against the highly touted Malin Hermansson (2-0) and IMMAF World Champion Anna Astvik.

Camila improves to 2 wins and 0 losses, while giving Sandra her first loss of her pro career.
