    Val mentions she does a lot of studying of her opponent as part of her preparation. This is one of the reasons she's among the best in wmma history, imho.

    I've never understood the ones who say 'I'm not concerned about what my opponent might do. My coaches will develop a game plan for me.'

    Hearing her talk is like watching someone planning a murder. Simply terrifying...

    There is a significant skill difference in this fight. Shev wins and makes it look easy. The safest bet on the card.

    The question is how does she get it done? I feel like any way except knockout. Andrade got a big ol' melon.

    Valentina won't knock out Jessica with her hands, but she can send her to another dimension with a headkick.

    Yep, I am fully expecting a Valentina finish.

    She alternates decisions and finishes, and just had a decision vs Maia.

    Andrade is the perfect opponent to catch with a head kick.

    Both things work for different people. Sometimes they have a trust in thier coaches analyzing opponents. If they trust them to train her they trust in this too. At some point,fighters have prepared themselves as much as they can in the things they are good at and let them take care of the rest.

    Valentina will win easily but I don't think it will be a 40 second starching like zhang did though.

    Yeah Val is never in a rush. If she can figure out her distance,shes gonna pick Roiddrade apart.
