Big Bad Blog Video Theater-Ketlen Vieira vs Ashlee Evans-Smith
Here's the match video of Ketlen Vieira vs Ashlee Evans-Smith from last night's UFC show in Kansas City. This fight aired on the UFC Fight Pass prelims. Though she is 2-1 in the UFC, Ashlee has not looked very good in her last couple of fights. She's a former All American wrestler who now trains with her long time pal Carla Esparza at Team Oyama. Ketlen won her first UFC fight. But this fight should give us a better idea of where she is at. The big difference in this fight was that Ketlen was much quicker than Ashlee. Ketlen was throwing combinations and landing more. Ashlee seemed sluggish but I think she just lacks quickness. Ashlee makes up for that with her wrestling. But Ketlen was too quick for her. Ashlee did a little better in round three when Ketlen got a little tired. But Ashlee needed a finish and didn't get it. She needed to show some urgency and I don't know why she didn't. Ketlen will probably face a top ten opponent in her next fight. If she doesn't get her act together, Ashlee could be headed for Palookaville. Enjoy the video!
