The Jedrzejczyk/Zhang fight was epic - definitely the best women's fight I've ever seen, and one of the best MMA fights I've ever seen regardless of gender.

I wasn't all that impressed by it, really. Yeah, they knocked each other around a lot, and it stayed a kickboxing match most of the time, but that's typical of any of Jedrezhbfgjk's fights. It looks like she's done a little to improve her POWER though, because usually if she gets an opponent that's dumb enough to stand there and sling gloves with her for 5 straight rounds, they don't come out with any swelling or cuts. I dunno what kind of fights she had before the UFC had women, but I've probably watched every one of her fights with the UFC, and to my recollection, she's never legitly KO'd anyone the fuck out (she may have gotten a few TKO's from overwhelming top position ground strikes). I've never been particularly impressed with her. When the division started, she had the best boxing and kickboxing skills but no power, and it was enough to outclass most of her competition. Competition is getting better though, and some of the women are starting to develop their power and accuracy,... and she's still the same as always.

I'm so incredibly bored by most of the womens fights. I tend to FFW through them because 90% of them end in decisions. Not enough of them fight with fury and urgency, they seem to treat it like it's just a "game" and the only object is scoring points. And the men sometimes do that shit too. And I'm not talking about the Romero Adesanya fight. The lack of activity there was due to Adesanya being a counter striker, him not wanting to give Romero an opportunity to land his massive power punches on him by initiating things too much, and Romero KNOWING that he's a counter striker and not wanting to initiate either. They're afraid to open up and get caught and maybe lose, which is technically different from the garden variety lackadaisical MMA fighter who plays for points, but indeed just as boring to watch.

The Dariush fight was my favorite from the card.

Nice job on the textures AI thingy UnHoly! Sry man, I thought you were making a Patrick Swayze joke about Logan's Roadhouse. Didn't realize it was a real place. Hope it works out ok for all you guys in the USA.
