Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Jessica Andrade vs Sarah Moras

Here's the video of Jessica Andrade vs Sarah Moras from last night's UFC show in San Diego. Sarah is from Kelowna, BC. She was on TUF 18 but has been injured. She won her UFC debut over Alexis Dufresne last year. Jessica lost her last fight to Marion Reneau by armbar after Jessica made a stupid mistake. Will she learn from that mistake? Sarah is taller than Jessica but Jessica is more powerful and much quicker. In round one, Jessica is getting the better of the striking exchanges. Sarah tries to take her down but Jessica stuffs them and makes Sarah pay with elbows to the head. I scored round one 10-9 for Jessica. This continues in round two and Jessica almost pounds her enough to get a finish. But she still wins round two 10-9. One thing was that Jessica was aware of Sarah's armbar attempts from bottom position. So Sarah needs a finish. But listen to what her trainer David Lea tells her between rounds. There doesn't seem to be much urgency. And if he doesn't communicate urgency, she won't fight with urgency. Sarah was pooped anyway and Jessica pounded her for most of round three. But an ill advised judo throw gave Sarah Jessica's back with a minute left in the fight. Sarah tries a standing choke but she never applies it properly and there isn't enough time to do anything with it anyway. Jessica wins by unanimous decision. Afterwards, Jessica says that she thought she was on the chopping block. I doubt that but fear of unemployment is a great motivator.
Remember she's only 23 years old so she has plenty of potential. She made a mistake in her last fight and she was more careful and it paid dividends. Enjoy the video!
