Brighton’s Shannon Sinn made the most of her professional MMA debut Saturday night in Loveland at the Budweiser Events Center. 

 

Sinn took on Courtney Himes in the co-main event of the evening. The fight was a standing affair at the start. But within a minute, Sinn had Himes on the ground and submitted her at 51 seconds of the first round with an armbar. 

Sinn, who has had six fights since 2011, had a great deal of Brighton-backed momentum going into the fight. 

The event boasted the largest crowd in Colorado MMA history with more than 4,000 fans in attendance.
