Denice Zamboanga scores a quick victory in her pro debut in Korea.

Rising Pinay MMA prospect Denice Zamboanga just proved that winning runs in the family. Sister to URCC champion Drex Zamboanga, Denice had big shoes to fill when she stepped into the cage in Korea for her pro debut.

However, the Pinay fighter showed her comfort in the cage, quickly submitting her Korean opponent Seo Woo Yang via first-round rear-naked choke.

She posted on her Instagram after the fight:

Thank you Lord for the victory of my first pro MMA fight in Korea via rear naked choke in 1st rd. This is the best birthday gift ever. Thank you to the best coaches who helped me in preparation of my pro debut fight kuya Drex Zamboanga, Stevie Lazo and Severino

I am overwhelmed with all of the love I’ve been receiving from everyone. Shihan Vincent Vicencio ptr Garry Sibal, boyfriend Clark, sir Ferdie, family, friends, office mates and team mates thank you who always there to support me!

This victory came just a month after her amateur debut at Domination Fight League 3, where she won via first-round armbar submission.
