Vieira is one of my absolute least favourite fighters, her fights are lackluster and her behaviour is so god damn annoying in the post fight intervies.The UFC Fight Night main event between Holm vs Vieira, I think Holm got robbed.
Holm had Vieira against the cage for nearly all the fight.
I didn't watch any this weekend but looked up the result on the app, saw it went the distance and presumed the same. Glad I didn't bother.Not surprised Vieira was crying after that complete snooze fest, even her corner were saying she needed to do more and that she was losing. Crap fight.
My take:Of the last three fights:
-retirement warranted, out of the game too long, brutal KO
-rematch plz, but give just enough time for Santos to learn ground and pound as the lay and pray cost her - Valentina actually has a challenger now.
-superb BJJ related irony in the way the fight ended. Would have gone to the loser if another 30 seconds had passed and it went to decision. Absolute war.
1) Joanna deserved to lose. She talked too big and in the end she had lost her mojo and you could see her heart was not truly in it.
2) Santos gave Valentina the vest fight I have seen, she had her really rattled. If it had not been for that unfortunate head clash I think she would have won the fight and Valentina got a get out of jail free card there.
3) Glover could have and SHOULD have won that fight. I know he was fatigued but in the last couple of rounds he did not show good fight IQ when he kept just diving for Jiris legs when he was already killing Jiri on the feet. I think he will look back at the replay and be very disappointed in himself.
I agree. I had it a draw with the 3rd being 10-10 but again the boxing scoring system doesn't work for 5 minute MMA rounds.Main event was so high level, shame someone had to lose. Umar also dominated and pulled off one of the most outrageous kicks to the dome you’ll see for a while.
