    Rose is clearly the better fighter— this was a fluke and a mistake yes and yes she lost..... she’s still the better fighter.

      Weasle not wrong with his analytics. U mention Andrade did nothing throughout the match. You kinda sound one - sided based on your comments and analogy. I do admire Rose's techniques with her boxing style and how she utilized the Kimora as the defense against the hight crotch slam - ko attempt by Andrade. What you forgot to include in your "WHAT REALLY HAPPENED...." is how both fighters did an awesome job respectively. Jessica did receive brutal battle scars as Rose threw her punches and connected Jessica effectively. Jessica may have been stunned however she never seemed stalled or slowed down. Through the match Andrade kept moving forward towards Rose.The commentator seemed a little worried at a point that Rose would leave herself open lowering her hands as she moved back or to the side after throwing her jabs or punches. It's good there were no thoughts or ideas mentioned at all of any cheap shots taken or extra advantage that gave either fighters any leverage over their opponents. Rose Namajunas used her athletic intellects and professional skills to defend and move forward offensively best as she could. So did Jessica Andrade, she realized Rose's "Kimora" prevents her from applying the High Crotch KO Slam so Andrade utilized her athletic intellects along with her strength and professional MMA skills Jessica resolved the challenge and applied the crotch slam KO effectively to end and win the match fairly and professionally. Summary both fighters did an awesome job respectfully and professionally. Although not mentioned and it should be in "What Really Happened....". Oh also a lot of fans might've been rooting for Rose, and others rooting for Andrade and many others were rooting as well as appreciated both athletes. Truly each have her strengths and weakness with that said I respect both women. Good Job Rose and Jessica.

        I completely disagree with your analysis it was clearly the body shots that changed the fight

            Rose can beat Andrea just one of those accidents in fighting where one shot changed the whole fight

                        Rose was under a lot of stress for this fight and even though she was winning the round's,
                        Rose was relieved! It was over, she now will take time off, to enjoy her life, and relax, she will always be a winner, Always........

                          Before the fight I said rose would give Jessica a lesson in martial arts.
                          I still stand by that statement.
                          Pity she made that mistake.
                          She is the best in my eyes.

                            Fucking steroid bitches like Andrade ruining this sport. Now we won't ever see a master fighter like Rose compete again.

                              Rose needs to fight again but I dont see it happening. She hid for months over Connors deal where she was never in danger after a loss shell be hiding for 5yrs

                                Andrade is Not a Champion, she is a gorilla type bully. Rose dominated her throughout the fight, and nearly submitted her on her first throw down of Rose. The second time Rose landed poorly, caused her to black out, Andrade did Not beat her.

                                        Once again just goes to show once you get too cocky and talk some s*** you get beat she was too confident and underestimated her opponent should have remained humble Rose like that more about you than anything but now that has diminished

                                          Jessica should of been DQd for spiking .. slamming someone on their head is ILLEGAL... UFC just felt the pressure cause they were in Brazil.. Rose still the man!

                                              Andrade played the lottery one night and won. I'll bend over and kiss my own ass if that happens again!! Rose outclasses her in every aspect. Until the slam, this was like watching an angry midget getting toyed with.

                                                Andrade Actually tapped out when Rose held the kimora during that first rush andrade did. Look at it - its clear as day.

                                                          sometimes being a champion can be too stressful for humble people.... still she has mad skills and I would be honored to continue to support her if she still fights.... but to be honest... it looks like it was a setup.....

                                                            Slams shouldn't be allowed in the sport. The risks are too high.

She could of broken her neck. Im all up for slams but like.. The rampage jackson kind.. when they are in guard on the bottom and u slam them on their back. The way roses head bent was hard to watch. That one specific slam when its directly on the head and the head only should be illegal

                                                                                • fosterpainter

I sometimes think shes a peek at the future - of more than the sport, but society. Where we want to go. We really need her around, and we need to see how she handles a loss.

                                                                                      I tend to thin this was a "bullshit" win, but thats because I love Rose. It was a terrifying drop, but she was still waving the ref off. Ive seen so many "undeserving" UFC wins and surprising knockouts. Its not always about skill, and Rose is a skill fighter. Or as Wonder woman says "ees not about deserve".

                                                                                        if she did, it would have ruined the sport.

                                                                                        she should be banned from mma. its a sport, not the fkn Thunderdome.

I'm not sure what rose coulda done with her head that would'nt have put her in serious danger.. If moves like that are allowed in mma theres gonna be a lot of folks dropped on their head in future!
