Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Jessica Andrade vs Jessica Penne
Here's the match video of Jessica Andrade vs Jessica Penne from last night's UFC show in Los Angeles. The last time we saw Jessica Penne she was getting clobbered by UFC Strawweight Champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Her number one flaw is she's a terrible striker and her striking defense isn't very good. Her hope was to take Andrade to the ground. I have liked Jessica Andrade since before she came to the UFC. She was undersized for a Bantamweight. But she said she didn't want to drop to 115lb because she likes to eat. But she agreed to drop to 115 and this is her Strawweight debut. The story of this fight is Jessica Penne had no answer for Jessica Andrade's striking. There was almost a finish at the end of round one. I scored it 10-8 for Jessica Andrade. If this fight continued like this, it would end pretty soon. And so it did. Jessica Andrade wins by second round TKO. I think it makes her an immediate contender in the Strawweight division. She's pretty good on the ground too. The guillotine is her favourite finisher. Jessica Andrade says she wants to fight Carla Esparza who turned her down supposedly because Carla didn't think Jessica could make weight. She actually took an easier opponent. Jessica wants to fight Carla in Brazil. I like that idea. Enjoy the video!
