Gabi Garcia MMA Fight Tonight (or Today? Right Now?)

Oh, it already happened. Garcia won, MMA Junkie reports:

“The anticipated MMA debut of 10-time jiu-jitsu world champion Gabi Garcia (1-0) played out like the spectacle many had expected when she stopped Seini Draughn (0-1) by first-round TKO after a sloppy, back-and-forth women’s heavyweight fight… After some wild striking exchanges, Garcia clipped Draughn with a backhand that caused a knockdown. Garcia got on top and pounded away with hammerfists until referee John McCarthy called an end to the contest.”

Feel free to check out the rest of the rest of the article, which includes the rest of the summary of Garcia’s fight, as well as the results for Kron Gracie and Feder Emelianenko’s fights.

Have a great day everyone, and see you in the New Year!

Rousey Lost to Holm in UFC 193

Well, that happened. While I can’t say that I’m surprised that Rousey lost (it was bound to happen- no one is unbeatable indefinitely) I was actually surprised that it was to Holm. The last time I saw her fight, she did fairly well in the ring, but while she hit her opponent, her striking lacked power which I honestly thought was going to be her problem with this match. It’s great that she was able to correct this weakness in her game.

Anyway, let me know what you all thought of the match, and have a great day everyone!
