    If only Dern can improve her takedown. She will be unstoppable because she is a maestro on the ground. Her main event fight vs Marina yesterday proved that. No one can touch her once it gets to the ground she just needs to be able to get her opponents down there quickly.

      Strawweight is the most stacked female division. So many styles, so many veterans, so many prospect. The other female divisions have dominant champs but also a weak line up

    The Rose that grew through concrete-2Pac


    I’m a HUGE fan of Zhang, I really don’t care where she’s from. If you’re concerned about where fighters are from, more than their actual fighting abilities, then you’re not a fan of the sport. More like a geek fanboy. Rose had such an amazing win over her, it was like throwing a dart directly on the bullseye 🎯 Super satisfying, although I can’t wait for Zhang to come back stronger. I’ll be rooting for her on November 6th Also I’m NOT at all a fan of Colby but I’m pretty eager to see if he has something different. I honestly feel like Usman would destroy him again, but with this sport you never know. We all have our favorites, but at the end of the day you respect the better fighter.


    Rose is gna get handled in the rematch rose got lucky with that kick🤣 zhang stand up and clinch and ground game is to much for rose zhang gna beat rose face to a pulp just like that others chic🤣

  • Sydney Johnson

    Anyone who says that head kick by Rose was a lucky shot does not understand how strategically placed that was. She practiced that with her team intentionally for months because after studying Weili's footage they realized she only had two striking defenses: she either leans back if it's a head strike leaving her lower body exposed, or she scoots back and leans forward if it's a low kick leaving her head exposed. Rose feigned a low kick in order to get Weili to lean her head forward, leaving her in perfect placement for that head kick. BRILLIANT.

  • Jeanbab

    Why did they skip Joanna Jedrzejczyk ?

  • Lalramfakzuala Chhangte

    What Joe Zhang has landed a number of inside leg kick huh but a slim baseball bat on thug rose did the job perfect, anything can happen at any given time so anyone can imagine how tough and exciting it would be to judge and comment these flights

    I'm a dude, I weigh 118 lbs, if I identified as a woman like that weird Olympics weightlifting fella, would Dana set me up with a strawweight title shot... (Just so I can touch thug Rose 🌹❤️) 😉 (I'm not chopping no bits off tho)

    Rose has been preaching her sentiment & since then, her fans are echoing their support against Weili & China. Just because of this, Rose should be rematching Weili in China & let's see how tough Rose's mentally & physically really is. Let Rose experience Weili's journey but yeahhhh...you know Rose is never gonna agree. 😂😂

    • High 5
      High 5

      @Brunson it's not just about a boo, Rose is starting a war against China. Let's see how far her courage is without her crowd support. Weili came to America as comrade of MMA to fight her not as an enemy yet Rose treat her like one. Where os Rose's morale? What's the point of her Sunday's preach?

    • Brunson

      Lol you think rose is going to be affected by some boos she literally got booed by joanna fans rose mentality has never affected any of her performance

  • Usama Mustafa

    All the comments revolving around Rose, Weili and Carla just highlights the issue with the UFC not being a clear-cut tournament, leaving a lot open to speculation, perspective and bias as to who should match with who, and who is deserving of title shots and rematches. I'm not suggesting the UFC goes back to the format it had in the 90's, because having an athlete fight multiple times in one night is a little crazy. However, spread over a few months or a year might work. At the least, it'd be a lot clearer for everyone than it is now.

    Rose has to be stressing out of her mind before this fight. She can't do what she did in the previous fight twice, and she probably knows Weili is a stronger fighter

      @Pale Amigo And Weili is training with Cejudo. If Rose is prepared for a war it can be the fight of the year 💪🏽
