Fighting at 115 pounds, Jeanson handled her opponent, winning by points in a five minute one-round match.

Jeanson said she really had to work hard for her points and that her opponent, who trains at Gracie Jiu Jitsu out of Stockton, was a tough competitor.

Jeanson, who owns PowerHouse MMA Training Center in Grass Valley, said she will continue to do grappling tournament and work with wrestlers as she prepares for her next cage fight.
