Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Danielle Taylor vs Ham Seo Hee

Here's the match video of Danielle Taylor vs Ham Seo Hee from last night's UFC show in Brisbane, Australia. This was a terrible fight. But afterwards there was a lot of whining about the judging and the ref. So I took another look at it. Geez, the things I do for you guys. I didn't think either fighter did enough to win. But Danielle is the main culprit. She got on her bike and played keep away for three rounds. It's the same strategy Maryna Moroz used to beat Danielle. And it's a great strategy to use on Ham, a technical kickboxer with no power. Of course the ref could put a stop to it. But most don't and it's a legitimate strategy to win fights. Some fighters don't care if their fights are boring. They just want that W. The ref did miss an eye poke on Ham in round three. But I doubt it made any difference. It's a difficult match to judge. I suppose they gave it to Danielle for cage control. She won by split decision. It's a cheap way to win and it doesn't move her up the ladder. Her camp will say a win is a win. Enjoy the video!

  1. Frank, thank-you. I thought the reffing was terrible. And if Taylor thinks that strategy is going to work for her all the time. She is in for a big surprise sometime down the road. You and I both know there are fighters who will go in and take her down and submit her. I saw at the end of Round 2 Ham take her down and had to stop because time ran out. To bad for Ham. But you are right there was a lot of dancing in that fight.
