Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Valerie Letourneau vs Jessica Rakoczy
Here's the match video of Valerie Letourneau vs Jessica Rakoczy from last night's UFC show in Montreal. It aired on UFC Fight Pass. Both were fighting at 115lb for the first time. And they both looked emaciated at the weighins. We haven't seen Jessica since TUF 18. She recovered from a shoulder injury and moved back to her home town of Hamilton, ON. She's a former boxing champ but I don't think she's much of an MMA fighter. Valerie is from Montreal but she now trains at American Top Team in Florida. She admitted the weight cut was not pleasant. Valerie seemed to be quicker on her feet and was winning round one. They went to the mat and Valerie destroyed Jessica's right eye with an elbow. She couldn't see after that and Valerie won easily by unanimous decision. The doctor almost stopped the fight before round three. But he let it go on but it really hampered Jessica's vision. I guess the main thing I got from this fight is both women would be better off fighting at 125lb. Enjoy the video!
