Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Felice Herrig vs Alexa Grasso
Here's the match video of Felice Herrig vs Alexa Grasso from last night's UFC show in Houston. Alexa was unbeaten coming into this fight and she was heavily favoured. She has looked very good in all her fights. The only thing that has slowed her down has been injuries. She has star potential partially because she's Mexican and the UFC considers Mexico an emerging market. The problem with Felice is she is inconsistent. But I noticed that she is again working with former UFC and Bellator fighter Jeff Curran. She really seems to click with him. The problem with this fight is neither fighter is very effective. But Felice was slightly more effective and that's why she won the fight. Alexa simply didn't do enough. And if you saw her reaction after the decision was announced, she thought she won. And that means her corner told her that she was winning. That explains why Alexa showed no urgency in round three. I scored the fight 30-27 for Felice. And it's not like Felice was dominant. She eked out a win over an underperforming Alexa Grasso. I can't imagine why Alexa would fight that way. Hopefully she learned her lesson. Felice says she would like to fight either Michelle Waterson or Paige VanZant. Enjoy the video!
