The Penne/Waterson fight was technically superior to this one by a good bit.

You sound like a chick picking out her favorite baseball players by who has the best butt.

The striking was mediocre at best, but the grappling was quite good. And the fight was mostly grappling.

And LMAO at Kenny Florian:
-"She needs to get her tips... I mean her hips..."
-"She's trying to really hurt Teat... Tate here..."

Who would have thought, 12 months ago, that a non-title WMMA fight, with no Rousey, no Cyborg, and no Carano, would rate a 17 page long thread on this forum?

Indeed. The popularity of WMMA really is growing at a frenetic pace. More so than I thought.

I actually think that their "inferior" skills are an advantage to reach the mainstream audience. If you have super elite fighters, often their skills cancel each other out and only well educated spectators perceive the subtle moves they do to get an advantage in the fight, while with mediocre technicians there is not so much canceling out, so often much more directly visible action is happening. With super elite fighters you need names to carry the mainstream audience, but in WMMA apart from Rousey there are no huge names yet. Eventually WMMA may also get its fair share of big names, hopefully that develops at the same pace as the progression of skill level.
