    Interesting question. It makes sense to use female fighters to market male oriented products, because the vast majority of fight fans are still male. The downside is that the fighters can’t really claim to endorse the product, especially if it’s not designed for them.

    Huh. Three fighters (I'm guessing, all three are Thai) with the last name of "The Rocket" on the same card. I guess it's a family matter. Still, the fighter going up against King Reina is "Andre" (not Andrea).

    Also, good to see Stephanie Egger fighting again.

    A gym name? Isn't that the Thai custom.

    They're actually members of the Thai space program, the director thought they needed to toughen up in case they met any dangerous lifeforms out there.

    I think in this case it’s a management team, as the three on this deep jewels card belong to different gyms.

    Mara & Macy. Bummed that Nicco injured her knee, would have picked her over Macy.

    Didn't know she's the only Japanese woman in the UFC. Or that she's training in NYC. Enjoyable interview. I'd like to learn about Japanese fighters in the UFC if anyone has info. Looking forward to her fight versus Tecia Torres March 28.

    Oh I'll check out the full fight. In the interview above she mentioned she'd like a rematch. Was just reading up on Mizuki. She lost that by split decision & it was Invicta fight of the night. She's won a few fights by submission, mainly via arm bar. She'll have her hands full with Torres.

    I may have a possible whereabout of Syuri Kondo which is she is currently active in
    pro wrestling in Japan since she might not have gotten her option picked up by UFC
    do to a 1-3 run.

    Same here, although Montana I can see being close.
    Macy Chiasson finishes .


    Well two of my favorites got nice 30-27 wish they were finishes but they can't all be super pretty.

    Late replacement Shanimal Young had nothing for Macy Chiasson. Macy tried for a finish & couldn't get it. Nicco would have made it an exciting fight imo.

    Montana De La Rosa has improved her wrestling & grappling. Mara kept punching / walking into getting clinched & taken down. Montana earned the unanimous decision.
