    Were completely unjustified. Every fight delivered. A barn burner, two beat downs, 1 TKO, 1 straight KO, and two exciting contenders for the strawweight division. Is Sherdog ever going to stop complaining about women?

    Rose's title reign is approaching it's end.

    I try to just ignore the WMMA haters. Even on paper the card was good.

    I'm glad it delivered.

    Last night certainly raised WMMA stock, but it didn't invalidate that the majority of their fights are boring. 228 seemed like an outlier, not the norm.

    No doubt there are some talented women but the problem a lot of people have is outside the top fighters, most of WMMA is very low level.

    They were massive fucking mismatches between top tier fighters in their division lol...if KKs striking didn't show you why some of us dislike WMMA then I don't know what else to tell you. I don't want to see some gremlin looking dude KO a KK though.

    That KO was insane from Andrede. I knew KK was gonna get lit up, just not that bad.

    Gotta admit, I was impressed with Suarez..

    I don't think anyone in that division is going to beat her..

    Yup, kept saying it going in. It's all about the fighters and the match ups, these simply couldn't be boring. Aldana got fucking fight of the night! I'm so happy for her! Those 50000 really make a difference the deeper you go into Mexico (the exchange rate goes up the further you are from the US Border).

    So yeah my point being maybe some of you guys should watch some fights before you talk shit. Maybe watch some breakdown videos on technique? YouTube is getting a lot better about this. Then you wouldn't look like dumbasses when you post. Food for thought.

    Just because some of the women that fought last night are among the 6-7 female fighters total worth watching doesn't mean WMMA as a whole is good

    I didn't mind seeing that birdfaced chick getting obliterated by John Lineker but the wicked witch humping that treasure troll didn't impress me much.

    Well I mean, they were justified. Normally they are not really good fights but yesterday was the exception

    Well, i was SURE Andrade vs Karolina was going to deliver violence, i wasnt expecting that kind of KO tho, haven watched the full fight, but Suarez put a beating on Esparza, i wouldnt say they were the most impressive fights, but well deserved their spot on the cards, Andrade was basically the #1 before last night, she has to be next for Rose.

    You can't really have a decent wmma conversation on Sherdog like you can on other mma sites.It's a matter of a opinion so it is what it is,but it's also like 3,000 members crying about wmma and super annoying.Most "fans" here don't even watch prelims or half the events.

    I wonder if it's the same posters crying about women and feminism in the war room.

    When it’s good we like it. When it’s bad we don’t like it. Sounds sensible to me.
