Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Nunes vs De Randamie, Davis vs Carmouche

The UFC had two women's matches on last night's Fight For The Troops show in Kentucky. Amanda Nunes vs Germaine De Randamie was on the prelims and Alexis Davis vs Liz Carmouche was on the main card. Germaine is a kickboxing legend but she has no ground game. Her last opponent Julie Kedzie doesn't have a ground game either and Germaine is better on her feet and that's why she won. Amanda is a brown belt in jiu jitsu and I thought she would win the fight if she took Germaine down. And that's what happened. It took a while but Amanda succeeded in taking Germaine down. At first the fence was in the way. But Amanda adjusted her position and started pounding away. At first Germaine was blocking the punches with her arms. But Amanda started landing more frequently and Herb Dean stopped the fight with about a minute left in round one. The stoppage was a little early. But Germaine would not have lasted the round. She wasn't getting out of this. And Dean warned her. I think he would have had to stop it anyway. In the other match, Alexis Davis beat Liz Carmouche by unanimous decision. Of course the fight was a big deal for Liz because she is a former Marine. Liz simply did not perform well in this fight. She didn't have the aggression I have seen from her in the past. Alexis was very effective with leg kicks and that may have taken some starch out of Liz. Nothing much happened in the first round. It was almost a tie but Alexis landed some shots at the end of the round. 10-9 Alexis. In round two, an overhand right cut Alexis over her left eye. She was bleeding profusely. But Liz did not take advantage of that and Alexis was more effective and round two and round three. Liz needed to do more. She just didn't do it. Check out the fight videos for yourself.
