Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Claudia Gadelha
Here's the match video of Joanna Jedrzejczyk defending her UFC Strawweight Championship against Claudia Gadelha from last night's UFC show in Las Vegas. Of course this rivalry goes back to Joanna's Dec. 2014 split decision win over Claudia. The problem is that at some point, Claudia had to figure out why the decision go her way. And I don't think she did that. She needed to do more after takedowns. And now we are talking about five rounds so she has to pace herself. I thought Claudia won the first two rounds. But by the end of round two, she was out of gas and she never got it back. Joanna won the last three rounds. And in round four, she came very close to finishing Claudia. All three judges scored that round 10-8. So Joanna retains the title by unanimous decision. Joanna prepared for five rounds and Claudia did not. She blew it all in the first two rounds and got the crap beat out of her like all of Joanna's other opponents. Both got fight of the night bonuses. Afterwards, Joanna said she wants to fight on the Nov. MSG show in New York. Claudia was whining that she thought she won round three. Maybe she needs to look in the mirror for her problems. Enjoy the video!
