    Clear 30-27 for Gadelha.

    Where does this leave both girls in the division and how far will they go? Gadelha will now get the rematch with Joanna, can she win it and will she stay at the top of the division? And Jag, after the loss who does she fight next and how far is she from title contention?

    I'm really looking forward to Claudia vs Joanna 2, looks like Joannas takedown defense has come along well, hope she'll take it again. But Claudia will be second best for a while i think.

    Joanna`s TDD was good already against Gadelha in last December. Its just that Gadelha is a lot bigger and stronger opponent than Esparza or Penne.

    I believe Gadelha can win against Joanna and I think these two will reign for a while.

    I think a five rounder might favor JJ more, but Gadelha is damn good. She is a much bigger threat to JJ than anyone from TUF.

    Yes imo jj and gadelha are the clear top 2, just wondering where aguilar sits in the division.

    I agree that Gadelha can win this, but I don't think she will. Gadelha's striking is very good, but its not as good a JJ's. JJ is faster, better angels, footwork ..

    Gadelha has the best double leg in this division, and if she wins it will be on the ground with TD/submission. Being that JJ has already fought Gadelha and knows what she will be up against, she will be more prepared.

    JAG also showed us that the low kick is highly effective against Gadelha, and it slowed her down considerably in the 3rd. I think its fair to say that JJ can deliver more devastating low kicks than JAG ... this will be a great fight.

    I agree. The strawweight division is becoming very interesting. And almost none of that interest is coming from the girls on tuf. Except randa, i like randa. Haha

    And i still like jojo but i just dont think she can hang with the elite.

    It was a pretty good fight. It looked liked Claudia was fading near the end. Her cardio is questionable, a championship fight against JJ would not go well for her unless she improves her carduo
