    There was a legit argument to be made that Antonina Shevchenko would beat Roxy. Even maul her. But I suspect the vast majority of you picked Antonina because:

    (1) She's prettier
    (2) She looks more athletic
    (3) She's taller
    (4) She's related to Valentina

    Never mind the fact that:

    (1) Roxy Is way more experienced
    (2) Roxy has the grappling edge
    (3) Roxy has only been KO'd ONCE via a Rampage slam (not by strikes)
    (4) Antonina the striker is a decision machine in MMA, kickboxing, etc.

    Fro every FrankieNYC (RIP) there are a hundred beerbelly incels posting here.

    well we've seen a lot of times where a polished striker goes in there and merks a older veteran, I think that's what UFC thought would happen when they booked this fight, but the problem is its WMMA and they have no real power, so a grappler actually still has a good chance.

    There was an astronomical difference in stand-up, but Antonina has almost no ground-game. It was always a possibility. Weeaboos rub me the wrong way.

    WAR NICE SHEVCHENKO STILL!

    I think your first (2) is a big factor when sherdoggers pick fights across the board

    Both the sisters are decision machines and massively overrated by the sherdog pervs.

    Roxannes grappling made that fairly one-sided. She actually even did okay on the feet. Smart, relentless pressure.

    Don't bring a dead man into this it's disrespectful.. And it was a sd and very close fight not a blow out . Stop being a jackass by acting like you know who Frankie would pick it's silly and again disrespectful ... shev could have won that fight cut the b.s
