    Nearly every time Cynthia tried to close the distance she ate a teep to the gut. The stand-up was kind of a wash in my opinion, if there was a difference it was that Jo Jo controlled the range.

    The grappling evened it all out and swayed the fight in Cynthia's favor. It was a close, but shitty fight.

    No idea why Calvillo didn't go for more takedowns. She almost let the fight slip away but secured a TD in the last minute in round 3 to get a decision.

    No. One can cut off the cage if one knows what one is doing. Jo Jo likes to move forward, but she tends to follow her opponents around the cage rather than cut off the cage.

    Jojo was cutting her off but then CC would double back the other way

    If Jo Jo thought there was a chance that she had rocked Cynthia, wouldn't Jo Jo have applied some pressure at that time rather than having an informal time-out for a high-five?

    I didnt claim it rocked her, but are you trying to say it didnt send her half way across the cage?

    it also was the most impactful strike landed

    Calvillo won no controversy. Won 2 rounds, and almost finished the fight. Jojo is a hype job.

    If it's striking dominance, then maybe, depending on how much of a whooping was administered. But taking someone's back, getting the RNC and running out of time?... No way.

    People seem to be confusing a near sub with a near KO. They are not equivalent. A near KO delivers massive damage. A near sub is technical dominance. In this case, literally 30 seconds of technical dominance.

    Jojo sucks, but a cage is a lot harder to command than a ring. My comment had nothing to do with Calderwood or Carvillo. The cage is also way bigger. Tons of room to run.

    I like your posts, but disagree here. It's the 'mixed' in MMA. A real KO also does more damage than a tapped out sub, or even a completed choke. Has little relevance to how close it was to a finish.
    Also, that choke was in. Lucky that there are rounds in this exhibition of fighting.
    Calderwood fights like she is in a kickboxing match. Her pacing and stance leave a lot of td opportunities, and allow that cage to be bigger than it is. She is fighting as though she is in a small ring against someone who wants to strike.

    Anyways, they both sucked. I thought Calderwood would get the decision, but no one won that fight very clearly.

    That was just odd. Total lack of killer instinct.

    They both get destroyed by anyone else in the top 10.

    Jojo is going to 125 anyway

    also Markos, Herrig, Torres and Waterson are all winnable fights for jojo at SW. so you are going a bit overboard with "destroyed"

    I think it is time MMA judges starting scoring blocked head kicks to some extent, sure very few of JoJo's kicks landed cleanly, but it still hurts to be kicked in the forearm.

    All those kicks seem to be completely disregarded as offense even though failed submissions attempts are scored highly.

    I was going to say something similar last night.... why dont we score attempted takedowns as well? seeing as attempted submissions score so highly.

    Jojo attempted loads of strikes last night, I demand they are scored highly as well :p lol

    I will always root for a fighter who makes weight over the one who doesn't. Jojo was obviously too dumb or too unskilled to figure out how to impose her gameplan. Glad her overweight ass lost.
