Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Bec Rawlings vs Lisa Ellis
Here's the match video of Bec Rawlings vs Lisa Ward from last night's UFC show in Australia. This show was on UFC Fight Pass so I know a lot of fans didn't see the fight. Ham Seo Hee was supposed to be Bec's original opponent. But she dropped out due to injury and Lisa stepped in. Neither fighter was impressive in the TUF house. And both lost on the TUF finale. Lisa is a veteran who is probably undersized for 115lb. To win this fight, Bec will want to use her size advantage and better striking to wear Lisa down. But Lisa gets a takedown and and transitions to an armbar. If she gets the armbar, she wins the fight. But she's not able to and from there, Bec uses her size to take over. Bec starts to hammer Lisa and wore her out by the end of round one. She wore her down enough to get Lisa in a rear naked choke and it's over. Sometimes it's all or nothing in MMA. Lisa tried to get it all with the armbar. When it failed, she got nothing. Time for her to retire? Enjoy the video!
