  1. in what universe does Claudia live in? Joanna is nothing but respectful, you two had a catfight get over it. Joanna NEVER goes out of her way to be an asshole. ITS A SHOW, and the point is to sell tickets, why do some fighters not understand this? I am pretty sure Joanna is exactly what a champ looks like.

  3. Why claudia never want to except joanna jedrzejczyk win clearly and fairly…?"she might lost clearly without excuse.. but it seems always she denied n don't accept,she always said she hate joanna and she think she's good and better than her,but she lost again

  5. To all saying that Claudia is a sore loser – she's acting smart – she wants to be considered as the real power in the division. Had she admitted she got beaten it could've been all over, she must appear strong and competitive, look how well she handled the press conference ( I'm sure she was heartbroken inside ) . They both had a plan for that fight- off the ring Claudia might have won it ( surely she won most of their sht talks ) she's also the good looking one, that helped a lot. She lost the fight but everything that happened before made people hungry for more fights between these two. More fights more revenue. Just my 2 cents.

  6. Joanna's a beast, but I can't wait for a possible 3rd fight between these two. I feel like Gadelha is in the same place that DC was in when he first lost to Jones. It was also DC's first 5 round fight and he didn't pace himself correctly and gassed himself for the later rounds much like gadelha did here. i feel like gadelha has a chance to do what DC did and learn how to fight over five rounds and come back stronger.

  8. I like the respect that she showed to Ronda. Most people are happy to kick her when she's down, but she made women's MMA.

    Joanna had the opportunity to brag and claim she was number one p4p, and she respected someone else.

    That's being humble, not just talking about being humble.

    Great champion.

  10. Best Question and answer:

    Min 4:10 (I did not catch the Japanese fighters name).

    Question: "What has been the key to success so far?" (good question)

    Answer: "Uh,–I think it's my abilities." (it does not get more exact than that)

    I like that guy. Wish I knew his name.

    • Do Hoo Choi..or Doo Ho Choi. He is a seriously under reported and estimated fighter with quick heavy hands and what seems to be great fight iq. I think if he gets some promotion and picks up a few english lines, he'll be a mother fucker!

  12. Joanna had 233 significant strikes for the whole fight.

    claudia had 78 for the whole fight…. from round 3,4,5. Joanna had 184 to Claudia's 18… lol. that's funny that she still can't admit she got beat badly

  13. 57/8 strike difference for round 3 for Joanna to Claudia. and claudia thinks she won round 3 because she took her down a few times and did nothing. Joanna got up Everytime and made you pay…. you say you have respect and class then show it and admit when you have been beat. damn

  15. Cluadia will never improve just like Faber because they never admit defeat.Always with the excuses.You have to admit you have a hole in your game before you can fix it.Watch and see she will go two years improving cardio.Then the next fight she will last a whole three rounds and still get out struck….

    • +ApacheRosePea00 I agree I was only saying cardio out of what she gave for an excuse.Cardio wasn't the deciding factor her game plan was the same as the first fight.

      While its smart to go to your strengths.I don't think she can rely on her Bjj as her sole advantage anymore.Then again I don't think she will ever catch up with JJ striking.She does have some power in her punches.Like you said perhaps she should have stood up more early.

      Gone are the days where fighters can just rely on BJJ to win all their fights against top opponents.The sport has evolved and for the good if you ask me lol

    • +ApacheRosePea00
      Yea I wouldn't mind seeing a third fight.Both ladies showed great heart in the fight.Yes striking with JJ would be better than gassing trying to out wrestle her which obviously isn't working.

    • Her failure or success is not about cardio though. She can't be so wrestle heavy against a quicker, better striker like Joanna unless she can keep her down and work a finish. It works right into what Joanna wants as the fight goes on so she can either get more comfortable striking or she can keep losing. I mean, she didn't do half bad striking in the first two rounds. I don't know her skills as a fighter but if she has a submission game she would be wise to use—saw nothing the other night.

    • +MrSnapy1 No doubt she would not be able to rely solely on her BJJ but to me, she showed none of it—when the announcers mentioned she had the leg trapped and Joanna managed out of it a few seconds later, with little to no damage, I knew it was downhill from there. Being the slightly slower, more powerful fighter, she should be able to strike with Joanna and use her grappling more wisely to keep Joanna from getting in a groove like we saw in rounds 4 and 5. Claudia can't compete with that when her arms are blown and yet her game plan puts her in that hole each time. Either way, it seems they are still one and two in the division. Unlike Rousey/Tate, I find Joanna/Claudia more competitive so I would welcome a third fight. I watched the post fight presser and It will be interesting to see what the TUF winner can do if she earns a shot against Joanna. Or a striker like Caulderwood.

  17. Claudia blew her gas tank on takedowns which she didn't capitalize on, got pummeled in the stand up from round 3 onward, and still thinks she did enough to win even after her own corner gave the 3rd to Joanna? Sorry, but no…

  19. I don't fucking get it man. Joanne calderwood has a great record 11-1 she knocks the shit out of valerie in 3 rounds and totally dominates a woman who took joanna 5 rounds in a close fight.Joanne is a muay thai fighter who will stand with joanna and i think will knock her out in 4 rounds. She has never lost to a striker and is tough as they come. But no mention of her in people who she should be fighting.I think it is because they all know joanna will get wrecked by joanne and they do not want to loose the golden goose of womens ufc. #Calderwoodforchamp

    • I think JoJo doesn't get mentioned because only in the last fight with Valerie did she look good. Her performance against Moroz was baffling. JoJo had great performances in Invicta FC but that was some time ago under a different stage. I do think if JoJo wins 2-3 more fights and looks dominant like she did against Letourneau the bad MoFo will get a crack at Joanna.

    • jojo is weak on the ground. But Joanna will not take her to the ground. I think jojo has the raw power to knock anyone out and has the balls to take joanna's strikes.styles make fights and i think jojo is suited to beat joanna.Rose will only win on the ground and from what i seen joanna's defense is very strong.But she will smash the shit out of rose standing. So rose will just shoot and joanna will knee and upper cut her for fun

  21. With this successful title defense, now only the World Heavyweight Title is the only title to never have a champion successfully defend the title 3 times. Even adding in the Superfight title which was the Heavyweight predecessor. It's the oldest title but the only one that no one seems to be able to hold on to.

  23. a lot of people scored the third round to claudia and it seem like it if you score minute by minute. Joanna did beat down claudia really bad in the later rounds so i agree with the decision.

  24. Claudia says, "it's all about the respect. I respect Joanna as a fighter, but I do not respect her as a person". That right there ladies and gentlemen is not an example of a wise one, and that statement is a contradiction obviously. To be "all about respect", you need to find it in yourself to respect a person for whom they are, you don't have to love them and cherish them, but we need to respect each and every person on this planet, because we are actually so small compared to the world and universe and we need one another. "United we stand, divided we fall". So it's important to push emotions behind and respect one another. So, I'm glad, in this situation, that Claudia respects Joanna as a fighter. But, girl, respecting her as a person would be wise as well.

  26. My girl Claudia got robbed big time for the simple fact round 1-3 were hers, Will Brooks is comin for the lightweight title and Kevin Lee still gets overlooked even after a 1st round finish just pisses me the fuck off

  28. Popatrz kobieto w lustro jak wyglądasz i wtedy zrozumiesz,że sędziowie mają rację.Przestań w końcu płakać,musisz się pogodzić,że Jędrzejczyk jest od ciebie lepsza.Nie możesz być sędziną we własnej sprawie! I LOVE POLAND KURWA MAC!!!

    • +meep meep Kowalkiewicz is a striker I don't think she would even attempt to take the fight with Jędrzejczyk to the ground the way Gadelha did. Karolina never fought 5 rounds in UFC, but her cardio looked pretty good in 3 round fights, at least those fights I which I watched. There's a chance she would not turn into human punching bag because of exhaustion the way Gadelha did in the second fight. But I'm not sure if this fight happens at all, there are many scenarios possible.

    • +meep meep Claudia and rose are two of the best grapplers in the division if and emphasis on IF they can get Joanna to the ground they might beat her in particular rose has a good submission game whereas Claudia is more ground and pound but no one can strike with Joanna which is Karolinas specialty

    • +Jack France Well Claudia has had two chances now to convert her takedowns into a sub or ground and pound and she just sat there because she gassed in both matches and acted like winning a takedown should count for something. Karolina may be more of a striker, but looking at the way she defeated Rose, she behaved a lot like a up close knees, elbows, and ground and pound type fighter like Claudia has been. Though better than Claudia imo. Striking may be her specialty, but it looks sloppy comparing to the techical striking Joanna has. Thats what I mean when I say that it may look similar to Claudia vs Joanna if Karolina fought her.

  30. Gadelha pisses me off so hard, landed legit 2 punches, scores some takedowns without doing anything on the ground, then got absolutely BATTERED for 3 rounds but still won't admit that she lost fair & square. I think thats just Brazillian thing, u gotta knock them the fuck out in front of their home crowd for them to realise who's the boss.

    • Maybe, but the old school rule still applies, and thankfully so. You must TAKE that belt from the champion. None of this bullish*t point fighting holding ones opponent to the cage or ground doing little so as to coast to a frustrating victory. I hope this will be engrained in all judges in the future to come as well. You have to take that belt and more or less put the champion away if you want that title. <-Period. Good job Dave Hagen and other judges working the event last night… Except with Ross Pearson, they ripped off Ross Pearson I think.

    • If you honestly believe Claudia won that fight and won by getting battered through rounds 3-5, 4 and 5 being so one sided they could easily be 10-8 rounds, you need to look up how to score a fight or rewatch it or something, plus a champion doesn't wear out when the going gets tough and it's the championship rounds

    • +Clifford Torres Why do you people keep saying Claudia got battered in rd 3? She got battered in rd 4&5 but not 3. I've watched fight multiple times and didn't see that at all. In my opinion Claudia won 1-3 and JJ won 4&5. But judges scored rounds 4&5 10-8 rds which I disagree with but that's how they scored it. But round 3 Claudia didn't get battered, far from it.

    • Holly is the baddest. Miesha just got lucky. Her being the main event with Nunes now is a joke too. Insulting to almost every other fighter on the UFC 200 card that is a superior martial artist to her/them. Can't even buy this PPV now, they'll do fine without me this time around. Don't understand why the Anderson vs Cormier bout isn't for the belt and straight back into the main event slot… Edgar vs Aldo is the fight of the week for me.

    • Ummm, if you don't think the longest raining heavyweight in Kane or the greatest fighters that ever lived in Jose Aldo and Anderson Silva aren't 100% superior martial artists, fan favourites, larger draws, all around next level fighters, and all obviously superior main event matches, then you're an idiot. I understand the belt match concept; But, who cares what the conditions are, Silva, one of the greatest, fought at Cormiers weight, the fact that the belt wasn't on the line makes no sense to a person with a brain. No matter what the situation, you fight a man at his weight class, you beat him, you get his belt, it's ridiculous. Nunes is another Brazillian cheat no doubt. A nobody, second rate, like Misha. The belt will continue being passed around like a hot potato till Holly ends up with it again probably. The best female boxer that ever lived; However, she is one of the oldest woman in the devision at the same time. Lesnar got paid because he's already a working man in another attraction and his pay is based off of projected turn arounds that his name will draw. Bringing another type of fan base into the PPV buys, increasing sales etc. Everybody knows this. Nothing insulting about it, that's what his name is worth, that's just smart marketing. People seem to have hard time understanding these things though.

    • +Emilio Escabar I would take Valentina Schevchenko, or however you spell it, over Holly Holm any day! She made Holly look stupid and dominated the 3rd round of her loss against Nunes. She also beat undefeated UFC fighter Joanna 3x out of 3 fights in Muay Tia

    • Holly is the baddest. Miesha just got lucky. Her being the main event with Nunes now is a joke too.

  32. Claudia is delusional about how that fight went, she did not check every leg kick and that wasn't a knock down in round 3, if you rewatch, Joanna buckled but her knees never touched the canvas from that elbow, and STILL
