    Was looking forward to seeing her fight. What a war! We are all used to timid women's fights, not today! Some brain cells and facial matter have died.

    Where's Alexa Grasso's fine ass at?

    WMMA mostly consists of air punching but both these ladies brought it. Helluva fight!

    2 wins in a row now, should I get back on the Guadalajara hype train? She needs to leave her family gym and train at some place legit, Lobos gets her nowhere.

    Now for my other wife Grasso to heal up and get back to her winning ways.

    Yeah lobos is no bueno. Neither is Entram in Tijuana. Not saying this was a possibility to begin with, but say hypothetically if Irene where already headed to Entram, it would behoove her to check out Alliance in Chula Vista. I think she's more talented than Alexa.

    Alexa is mor well rounded, and fighters in a deeper division. Neither have good kicks, however. They need a good Muay Thai coach.

    Nah the boxing is fine, they need better wrestling, so they can actually implement their jitz. Besides did you Irene in the clinch? She was winning the exchanges, even the ones initiated by Pudilova.

    Also I agree with you, Alexa is skilled, and a is a technical fighter but she doesn't seem to have a respectable pop behind any of her strikes. She also kind of lacks killer instinct.

    Aldana in with a chance of her second FOTN bonus. She's been transported btw with possible orbital fracture. Two warriors.

    For over 10 years most men fighters threw air punches ten feet from their opponent and bobbed left and right and called it "head movement".

    Men still do that and it’s still called head movement.

    I was going to mention Aldana’s previous UFC FOTN if nobody else did. Good job!

    Was looking forward to seeing Aldana fight but had to miss it because I was eating dinner with the wifey. Will have to catch it on fight pass afterward.
