TBD is Jessica Rakoczy. Not the most exciting fight last night but it was nice to watch a woman with some real boxing skills. Quick hands, really nice movement.

For those who've watched the show (which I have not): do any of the lady competitors look like they have a future in the UFC's female division? It really needs more warm bodies, preferably with skills, because at the moment it could simply be called the Rousey And Everyone Else division.

So far, none of them look like they would last the first minute with Rousey, never mind the first round.

Man those flyweights had the sweep game down I sense they do more than mma Jiujitsu.

Rosholt doing as he's always done get them to the ground and pound his way to a victory. From Titan to UFC it's fun watching a fighters career grow.

Whoa. I've seen Niinimäki fight live a few times and know he is very good at grappling and especially top control, but I'm still awestruck. Not only did he have no fear of going to the ground with Yahya he actually outworked him.
His stand up on the other hand looked way worse than what I've seen him do before. Might be they never really spent enough time on their feet to get comfortable?
Anyway, congrats to Tom. It'll be very interesting to follow his UFC career.Curiosity killed the cat. But damn it had a blast.
