    No, I'm not talking about her ground game. Was anyone else surprised at KK's posture while waiting for the fight to start? Andrade looked like a bull about to be unleashed. KK looked like she was standing at a bus stop while smiling and flirting with guys hitting on her.

    I can't recall if she's always been that way but it crossed my mind that she sure didn't look ready for a fight at all.

    She does that before every fight/round and has in her entire UFC run.

    She always stands like that. Even in photoshoots


    She sure is pretty though.

    Iirc that’s her typical posture. Doesn’t look like much, but she’s at the top of the division for a reason.

    She looked SOFT and flabby.

    Andrade looked like she was looking to hurt someone. And she is jacked as fuck, seriously that is a lot of muscle on the frame of a small female.

    She's always been like that. Must be one of Ufc's gimmicks to give her a character.

    Thanks for the responses. I guess I just never noticed how relaxed she was while waiting for fights to start.

    She always been a slow starter and she eats a couple before she warms up. This is extremely bad against someone who comes hard and heavy.

    She was a little too relaxed if you ask me.

    They certainly didn’t look like they belonged in the cage together.

    I don't think she's that good to begin with, did anyone really have any doubt how that was gonna go?

    Yeah, she always has the same pose with the accompanying wink.

    I’m a bit bummed out that the rematch with Rose will be postponed, but Jessica definitely deserves to skip ahead now.

    Well, a lot thought Andrade would steamroll JJ too and that was like a matador dominating a bull. Andrade's striking looked improved but KK was extremely hittable. I wonder if she was preparing for an Andrade who would try to constantly take her down?

    She’s adorable. It sucked to see her get KTFO.

    Lol So many people after this fight surprised KK is fighting this way or acting that way but at the same time claim to be her fans. Did you guys watch her fights before?

    She always keeps her head high and throws same combos over and over again. She is not an amazing defensive striker. She just throws a shit load of volume.

    Not how I saw it. KK was much more technical but she couldn't weather the blitz. Andrade's rate wasn't sustainable but she managed to land the big shot before she had to slow down.
