Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Patricia Vidonic vs VV Mei
Here is the fight video of Patricia Vidonic vs VV Mei from yesterday's PXC show in Guam. Mei looked at this fight as a ticket to fights abroad...if she wins. Patricia's rep is she is a good opponent but she loses as much as she wins. I didn't think it would be an easy fight for Mei. And unless she wins convincingly, I don't think it helps her much. In round one, Mei got a couple of takedowns but Patricia defended well and Mei can't advance her position. She also was exerting a lot of energy with little success. So Mei wins round one 10-9. But in round two, she looked tired. Patricia got a takedown and an attempted rear naked choke. Mei slickly reversed it but again Patricia defended well. I thought Patricia was more effective so I score the round 10-9 for her. In round three, Mei was clearly used up and Patricia took advantage with some good strikes in the clinch. One of the announcers said that Japanese female fighters always seem to be tired in round three. That's because they only fight two rounds in DEEP JEWELS. So I scored round three 10-9 for Patricia and she won the fight on my scorecard 29-28. The judges gave Patricia the win by split decision. The individual scores were not given. Where does VV Mei go from here? As has been discussed in the past, maybe it's time she dropped to 105. I think she should have done that already. Enjoy the video!
