Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Kailin Curran vs Emily Peters Kagan
Here's the match video for Kailin Curran vs Emily Peters Kagan from last night's UFC show in Las Vegas. This aired on UFC Fight Pass. Emily was in TUF 20. The last time we saw her was when she lost to Angela Hill at last year's TUF Finale. I wasn't impressed with her and considering that she is now 34 years old, I didn't think she belonged in the UFC. So now she has another chance to prove herself. Kailin is a young fighter from Hawaii. She lost her first two UFC fights. She was winning her last fight vs Alex Chambers but she got caught with an armbar. They said on last night's broadcast that Kailin's trainer Jason Parsons says that Kailin loses her concentration during fights sometimes That would explain the loss to Alex. That's a difficult problem to fix because that's not a physical problem. So both of these fighters could be on the chopping block. Round one begins well for Emily. She's going at a quick pace and Kailin didn't do enough. There was also a lot of clinching on the fence. Ref Marc Goddard warned them a couple of times but he never broke them up. I scored round one 10-9 for Emily. Kailin needed to be busier. But in round two, it looked like Emily had run out of gas and Kailin was a little busier. She was able to get Emily's back and got the win with a rear naked choke. I would not be surprised if Emily is released. And I think Kailin may have challenges with better competition. I guess a win is a win. Enjoy the video.
