If anything round 3 was more of a 10-8 Val then the fifth
Still absolutely wasn't but more so than round 5
Whelp, it was a fun one guys. Everybody have a good rest of their night!
Alright y'all I gotta go record the 6th round. Thanks for showing up. Was a good time even with that dumbass scorecard.
Even if it wasn’t a 10-8 Grasso won.. but that 10-8 is a joke
10-8 round 5 is fuckin' hilarious.
That absolutely wasn’t a 10-8
Ah shit here we go again
Gotta do it again.
Val's gonna kill someone. She's gotta be losing it right now.
A split draw but the belt still goes to the person who won it last? How does that work?
Fair decision. Not a win. Not a loss. Didn't lose belt.
Even if it sucks
Honestly that’s a fair outcome
ALWAYS ROOT FOR CHAOS!!
Tbh not mad with a draw
Where was the 10-8?
oh a draw. ok.
Idk its a coin toss.
Thanks all y'all for showing up. 6th Round will be dropping on Substack in a while. No video tonight.
I hope ufc does this again next year and stacks the card even further.
I’d make some money on Shevchenko, but she really gave it away at the end I think
I honestly have Valentina winning 4 rounds on my card but I also don't even know if she won.
I could see it going either way, but Shevchenko really fucked up badly
Oh my god, what a fight...
Blanchfield gives both of these women serious problems, I think.
How do you score that?
I have Grasso winning 2-4-5. I had Valentina easily winning 5 but the end of the round killed her
48-47 Alexa Grasso!
Huge mistake from Shevchenko in there to go for that headlock throw.
Even if Shevchenko survives this makes it a Grasso round. She's gonna retain the belt!!!
Grasso really needs to make something dynamic happen in this last minute. She can't just win the offense, she has to dominate it! JUST LIKE THAT!!!!?!?!?
Shevs timing is on point this last round with the jab. Hitting her in the space between a lot this round
Valentina Shevchenko's most entertaining bout in her title career?
When Grasso can snap her punches out from southpaw, she always catches Shevchenko off guard, but she's doing a lot of work very flat footed.
Grasso slowing down
The snap on Val's jab. Like a piston.
3 1 Grasso for me
My over 3.5 came in thank god, few scary moments.
Interesting to see how this gets scored if it goes to the judges
3-1 val maybe but I'm prepared to acknowledge very different cards
But what a fight...
39-37 Shevchenko? I have no idea. It could be even maybe?
38-38? Grasso maybe stole it with the knees?
I mean 10 seconds left is the only appropriate time to drop for a heel hook.
Weird as hell round. No idea how to score that.
There definitely seems to be a diminishment in the snap of Grasso's punches. Val not so much.
