As we look forward to PVZ vs. Ostovich on July 23rd, check out the highlights of their first meeting in the UFC under MMA rules.

What made the difference for me was PVZ's ability to get the better of scrambles. Something she was always good at and something Team Alpha Male fighters always tended to be good at, whizzers, sweeps, hip escapes and things like that. Getting up again if they're taken down, etc. PVZ has long since left TAM but her squirminess and good scrambling ability basically made the difference here. Possibly also the pace she fights at.

But note that in the stand up, Rachael landed some good punches and most media outlets scored the first round in her favour. Possibly you could call that a knockdown at 0:10 . Nice counter at 0:19 too.

PVZ is able to roll with punches she is caught with. She seems hard to hurt and has a good chin on her. Britain Hart lamped her a few times and she wasn't rocked or dropped.

It really depends how the fight settles down and whether one girl can establish more technical dominance under Boxing rules.

Although Rachael showed fast hands and good ability to spring in and connect, PVZ could still be the more technical when it comes to movement, jabbing and efficiency, although her performance was very disappointing against Hart. That was supposed to be a tune up and she lost it fairly decisively.

Not too sure whether Rachael is training hard for this. I doubt they're paying her as much as PVZ but if she wins at least they have another hot girl to promote.
