    Sad but true. Either all judges need to be former fighters or switch to the Pride judging criteria where whoever does the most damage or tries to finish the fight wins or do both. Whatever eliminates bad judging in combat sports is a plus IMO.

    I genuinely think she lost simply due to the fact Nunes got her down in round 5. Valentina was out striking her that round and started off strongly but as soon as she attempted the toss and nu-nu got her back and pressed her against the cage, it allowed her to use her power to lift her off the ground and take her down. I nearly flipped my shit when that happened cause I know how these judges are, I actually thought to myself "fuck! that's round 5 for Nunes and maybe the fight too"... it's annoying the way one simple take down (and doing nothing with it) can at times win you the round.

    Two judges gave Nunes round 5 (the two who had her winning). I think without the take down it would have been Valentinas. It's so annoying to come so close to winning.

    I like others, think she won that fight anyway.

    Agreed. But I do think she should have been more active in the 2nd fight, but maybe I remember wrong. Haven't rewatched it since.

    Skill for skill though, I think Val is the best in WMMA. Now that she isn't outsized by 15-20 lbs, I think she's going to tear people up.

    I'm more convinced than ever that they're somehow related :p

    I think the first punch here was where Priscilla mangled her knee, I can't tell how it happened but as soon as the punch lands she's struggling to keep her right leg from giving out on her. Everyone worries about Valentina's right hook, then they get hammered by the left straight.

    Valentina sparring with the South American Muay Thai champion

    Cracked me up hearing round 5 music in round 1 and Ram Muay music in round 2. :D
