Wow Valentina pulverized Andrade, was able to get a crucifix on her in 2nd round and smash her at will till the ref stopped it. I don't always root for Valentina but it was especially satisfying after hearing some guys thinking this was gonna be either close or an Andrade win. I know you shouldn't do MMA math but I couldn't understand how those guys underestimated Valentina. They thought Jessica's strength was going to be overwhelming for some reason. Valentina wound up rag-dolling her onto the mat time after time!

She really went to town on the heavily favored dyke.

Shevchenko closed at -455 going into the fight.

I'd like to see her go back up and challenge Nunes. Both women are high on confidence but it's sometimes easier to go up in weight than it is to come down. Meeting at 135 I think might be more debilitating for Nunes at this stage and Shevchenko might do her this time.

She has improved her grappling over the past couple of years and obviously has dedicated a lot of time to training it, such is her eagerness to use it in fights. It's still the Nunes beating blueprint, IMO. Tie her up early, keep making her work, tire her out. Nunes has become very good at controlling the pace at which fights are contested, being efficient with her energy.

Andrade looks like a tank, it’s amazing how easily and forcefully Valentina was able to take her down time and time again. Great WMMA event, also the Rose KO of course.

Valentina didn't just beat her, she beat her soundly while fighting a fight that Andrade might have thought would give her a good chance of competing. Statement.

Andrade's strength advantage isn't nearly as pronounced once she gets out of 115, especially not against someone like Shevchenko who is oversized at Flyweight. Though to be fair, Valentina didn't just neutralize her with strength, but also with technique.
