Carla's 1 dimentional! Randy's coming for that belt!

Carla still has to work up to being one-dimensional. Once she starts landing more than 10% of her takedown attempts she'll be there.

I'm no expert, but Carla's "takedowns" seemed to involve crawling desperately along the floor to grab a foot and then clinging on.  Most of the time it looked like a weird foot fetish rather than a fight.

 

Other fight was decent though; both ladies looked like they were actually scrapping.  Rose seems way more well-rounded and nimble than the other 3 left in but will probably get wrassled into oblivion at some point.

I agree with this. It is tough to judge a fight like this and I understand the whole aggression/advantage points thing but those take down attempts looked more like desperation than aggression.

Also you could see Carla starting to break in the second. I have no doubt that If it went to a third round Ticia would have won. In championship rounds she would have finished.

Ticia looked ready for another fight after the decision and Carla was puking in a bucket.

 

Oh and TUDF.

Carla will definitely lose vs Rose.  Namajunes is just too strong.   Would love to see Randa in the final here but good things come to those who wait.  Some refining and defining in order.  It's not who wins at the onset but who settles the score.  I look to see Randa vs Rose in a championship some day.  Rose has that Jon Jones spider approach, (what's coming next?) An all around game will nullify any glaring differences.  Markos needs to work on her hands and make them deadly.

She shoots from too far out because her striking is normally poor and her opponents always have a reach advantage. She needs to work inside and then change levels as her double leg was really good once she got inside.

Well, Canla won the inaugural title. I really, really wanted Rose to win but that's the way it goes.

 

I think Tecia should get a shot. I honestly believe that if Tecia versus Carla had been a five rounder instead of a two round exhibition in the house, Tecia would've won. Carla was shot after those two rounds and Tecia still had a lot left in the tank.

I think Tecia and Penne will fight for the next shot after Jedrzejcyk. Looking at the top, Markos, Gadelha, and Rose won't get shots because the just lost. Only other people that could really be considered are Calderwood, who was bounced from the house by the woman that just lost and Van Zant, who was melted by Torres.

Still trying to figure out how tuf brazil makes sense. Brazil has been involved in MMA for just as long if not longer than America. So in short dana and the genius jets are catering to a audience already watching the ufc. Brilliant when you're trying to grow NO?  So is the next tuf going back to mexico?

I used to fast forward to the fights on most occasions. My wife prefers the reality aspect of the show and I prefer the fights.  Probably not going to watch it this season.
