GOLD COAST, Australia -- Cheyenne Woods won the Australian Ladies Masters on Sunday for her first major professional tour victory, holding off 17-year-old Australian amateur Minjee Lee by two strokes. The 23-year-old Woods, Tiger Woods niece, closed with a 4-under 69 at Royal Pines to finish at 16-under 276. Lee also shot 69 in the event sanctioned by the European and Australian tours. Woods birdied the par-5 15th to open a two-stroke lead, hitting a wedge from about 120 yards to 4 feet. On the par-5 18th, she matched Lee with a birdie, holing out from 1 1/2 feet. "This is a huge accomplishment for me," Woods said. "The European Tour has been great to be able to play this past year. Ive been able to see all of these great players, play with Solheim Cup members ... to be able to come out here and compete with them and come out on top was huge for me." From Phoenix, Woods is the daughter of Earl Woods Jr., Tiger Woods half brother. Woods turned professional in 2012 after an All-America career at Wake Forest and her only previous pro victory came in 2012 in a SunCoast mini-tour event. In December, she missed the cut in the LPGA Tours qualifying tournament in a failed bid to earn a spot on the circuit. "Ive been pro for two years and, for the majority of it, people just think of me as Tiger Woods niece, so now I have a game of my own and I have a title now, a win, which is exciting," she said. "Its nice now to say to people that I can play and Im not just a name. Growing up with the last name of Woods, theres a lot of expectations and pressure and spotlight on you but I always knew that I was able to win. I always knew Id be able to compete with these ladies, so now its kind of a weight off my shoulders because now everybody knows not just me." Woods earned $51,000 and a two-year exemption on the Ladies European Tour. She will play next week in the LPGA Tour-sanctioned Womens Australian Open in Victoria.

In sunny and almost windless conditions, the Swede shot four consecutive birdies on the front nine on his way to a 68 and went 9 under for a one-shot lead over Englands Lee Slattery and two over Paraguays Farbrizio Zanotti (68).TULSA, Okla. - Rafael dos Anjos said he was ready to take his position among the elite in the UFCs lightweight division.To do it, he had to go through a former champion. And go through him, he did.Dos Anjos (22-7 MMA, 11-5 UFC) stunned Benson Henderson (21-4 MMA, 9-2 UFC) in the main event of UFC Fight Night 49, scoring a first-round knockout at the 2:31 mark.Dos Anjos, from Brazil, traded kicks and punches early with the American. But soon he found a way to get inside and landed a pair of jumping knees. The second put Henderson on the canvas along the fence.Thats when dos Anjos pounced. As Henderson got back to his feet, dos Anjos leveled him with a left hand that may have had Henderson out. When he again hit the floor, it only took two punches from dos Anjos to convince referee John McCarthy to stop the fight.I have no words, dos Anjos said. I was training for everything and worked a lot on my striking. I knew my striking was better than him. My plan was to be patient in the first round, and thats what I did.Dos Anjos was near a title shot this past spring, but a loss to Khabib Nurmagomedov seemed to send him back to the middle of the pack. This win over Henderson, though, widely regarded as the best lightweight in the world outside of champion Anthony Pettis, may have him right back in the mix.Im always the underdog. But tonight, I think I proved to everyone. Ben Henderson is a great champion, and I respect him a lot. But now is my time. Im doing my job. Whoever the UFC puts (in front of me) to fight, Ill fight.Henderson said he wasnt a fan of the stoppage, believing he was still with it enough to continue.I thought I was clear-headed. But it is what it is. Youve got to take the good with the bad. Thats the way it goes sometimes, Henderson said.In the co-main event, Jordan Mein, from Lethbridge, Alta., put an absolute exclamation point on his likely ascension from welterweight prospect to welterweight contender. Meiin (29-9 MMA, 3-1 UFC) stopped Mike Pyle (26-10-1 MMA, 9-5 UFC) in just 72 seconds courtesy of a vicious left hand that had Pyle stiff and falling backward.ddddddddddddOnce on the canvas, Mein finished him off with five quick punches.Im very happy to get the win over a tough veteran guy like Mike, Mein said after the fight. The game plan was to go out there and not overcommit to any strikes. I wanted to throw hard shots, but not open myself up for any easy takedowns. It didnt go very long but, everything went to plan. Im ready for whatever the UFC has next for me and Id love a top contender.The victory for Mein came after some controversy as his father and chief cornerman, Lee Mein, was arrested in Tulsa on Friday afternoon and charged with sexual battery. The UFC issued a statement saying Lee Mein was barred from cornering his son at the event.Also on the main card, Montreal-based Francis Carmont (22-10 MMA, 6-3 UFC) dropped his third straight match after an 11-fight winning streak when he was shut down by Brazils Thales Leites (24-4 MMA, 9-3 UFC) just 20 seconds into the third round.UFC Fight Night 49 results:Rafael dos Anjos def.
