    Very surprised RIZIN is letting her fight elsewhere. Maybe they are done with her after she missed weight by a small child?

    I know that feeling, there's only so many times you can watch fighters continually potato their way to a loss in a completely winnable fight where they have most of the advantages. After a while it gets frustrating seeing all those blown fights thanks to low IQ decisions. It's 2018, you can't win without fight smarts these days.

    I also think she needs to change camps. I have never been impressed by JW, as they seem to suck at teaching fundamentals. Aerius and I discussed that at some length a while back. Most of their really good fighters are really good athletes, or they came from somewhere else.

    No she is scheduled to fight on RIZINs July event. ROAD and RIZIN have friendly relations, they might be "trading" Garcia in order to secure an appearance of one of ROAD's higher profile fighters.

    Speaking of Ham, this fight just reminded me Casey lost to her also. That's two 105 lb champions...

    ....and now I'm reminded I want to see Ham vs. Waterson as many of us have for over half a decade now.

    MMA camps seem to resemble pick up basketball at a local park. I question the credentials of most coaches.

    Hillary VanOrum was in a tag team grappling bout this past weekend. Fubn bout. Hillary has done MMA before and would be interesting if she did fight for RoadFC or Rizin

    I was thinking the same. It seems like Cassie Robb is their go to girl to get their talent a much needed win. Bi Nguyen got a win over her recently and if I remember correctly it was a really close split decision win. I am all for Robb getting her money though. Everything I have seen about her seems like she is a good person. In a way she reminds me of Celine Haga. A good person with a terrible record.

    Not happy with Road booking Gabi at all. Bad enough that they're downsizing from 12 events to 8 this year, giving their female fighters less chances to fight under their banner, but now they choose to book a straight up freak show fighter over one of their legit female fighters.

    Also, this only further lends credence to the words of the president of TFC, who recently accused Road of being more concerned with names and spectacle than serious fights:

    She's probably like 9/10 of the fighters on their "roster" in that she's not signed to them exclusively.

    I've never seen a boring Fujino scrap. Jacobson isn't always full of action, though.

    Neat fact: to my knowledge, Fujino is the only MMA fighter to have a entrance song custom written for her.

    Of course Haga is 9-3 if you ignore the first 11 outings (10-2 really) ..... any news of her getting a fight? I guess she's too good now to be brought in against the local favorite and then there's Invicta.

    I like Mallory. She's exciting to watch. If I had a business (which, alas, I do not) I'd definitely consider sponsoring her.

    It's funny you mention that because Futina has stated Garcia has the striking skills of a child.

    Thought I read she has a fight in May lined up. I always wanted to see her and Montenegro in a rematch. Maybe settle the madness from their first outing.
