      These girls started the first round with some decent boxing exchanges. I thought Moras was landing the better strikes, Bernardo shot for a takedown halfway through the round, and Moras stuffed the shot. Bernardo finally took down Moras with a minute left in the round, and Moras showed crazy flexibility as she was able to pull guard from an awkward angle. Bernardo probably won that round with her takedown.
     They spent the first half of the second round trading random strikes, and then Bernardo scored another takedown with 2 minutes left in the round. She basically just smothered Moras for the rest of the round. Bernardo is pretty clearly ahead 20-18 going into the final round, but she hasn't done much of anything other than just control Moras on the ground.
     Moras started the final round with a quick takedown. Bernardo showed a fantastic ability to scramble back into top control a minute into the round. They ended up in a 69 position with Bernardo on top, and Bernardo basically just smothered Moras again, grinding her way to a decision... BUT! Moras scrambled back to her feet with a minute left in the round, Bernardo tried to take her down, Moras reversed her, ended up on top, tried to take Bernardo's back, Bernardo wrestled her way into top control again, they stood up with 20 seconds left in the fight, Moras unloaded on Bernardo, probably stole the round, but this should still be a 29-28 decision for Bernardo. All 3 judges agreed, giving Bernardo the unanimous decision victory.

      These girls both came out swinging, Pudilova landed some solid punches, Moras kicked her in the head, punched her a few times, clinched with Pudilova's back, and then threw her to the ground. Moras settled into Pudilova's guard, and started chipping away with elbows, as Pudilova just tried to tie her up. Moras landed some massive elbows & some big punches, as Pudilova was just clinging for dear life. The referee stood them up randomly with a minute left in the round, even though Moras was working a lot on the ground. When they stood up, Pudilova went off with strikes, she rocked Moras, they hit the ground, Moras went for an armbar, then a triangle, then an armbar again, and it LOOKED like she broke Pudilova's arm, but Pudilova was eventually able to shake her off, and then Pudilova finished the round by pounding on Moras with some heavy ground & pound. That round was wild, Pudilova finished strong, but I'm scoring that round for Moras, based on the amount of time she was in control.
     Moras shot for a takedown to start the second round, she ended up pulling guard, and then immediately slapped on another armbar. Pudilova slammed her way out of it, and then tried to work some ground & pound, as Moras continued to scramble around on the bottom. Moras squirmed around, she slapped on an inverted triangle choke, and then beat up Pudilova's body with elbows. Pudilova continued to try to work some ground & pound, but based on the weird pretzel positions, it's still kind of hard to tell who is in control at this point. Pudilova stood up with 45 seconds left in the round, and they reset for some more striking. The final seconds of the round turned into a wild brawl. This fight is fucking crazy, and both of their faces are all jacked up at this point. I'm giving that round to Pudilova, so I have this fight all tied up going into the final round, but apparently a lot of people gave the first round to Pudilova, even though she only controlled 45 seconds or so of the round. This fight is pretty exciting though.
     Pudilova started the final round by chipping away at Moras with strikes, Moras shot for a terrible takedown, Pudilova stuffed the shot, and they reset 90 seconds into the round. They both looked sloppy as shit in the final round, throwing wild punches, without much accuracy, but Pudilova was clearly landing the better punches. Moras shot for a deep double leg with 2 minutes left in the fight, the shot was stuffed, but she continued to drive through, and finally scored a takedown with 90 seconds left. Moras continued to work some ground & pound, Pudilova scrambled around, and then swept Moras with 5 seconds remaining. This fight should probably go to Pudilova with a 29-28 scorecard, but Moras put up a hell of a fight. All 3 judges agreed, giving Pudilova the hard fought unanimous decision victory.

      Moras started this fight with some decent punches, they clinched, and Smith pressed her against the fence. Smith scored a takedown 30 seconds into the round, and landed in side control. Smith threw some decent short elbows, and then Moras pulled guard. Moras setup an armbar 90 seconds into the opening round, and Smith tried to break free by pressing her foot against the chin of Moras. Moras spun around a few times, she cranked on the armbar, and she broke Smith's arm, forcing her to submit halfway through the first round. That was a fantastic finish by Sarah Moras.

      Andrade is a beast, and Moras is a grappling machine. The first round consisted of Moras showing decent boxing, she pulled guard way too often, and she threw some really hard upkicks, with perfect timing. Andrade spent the first two rounds, beating the ass of Moras, and slamming her, and punching her on the ground with hard punches. The first two rounds definitely went to Andrade. The third round was all Andrade, until the end of the round, when Moras almost locked on a guillotine choke, Andrade escaped, threw Sarah to the ground, but then she locked on a rear-naked choke as Andrade got back to her feet, but she only had about 15 seconds left, and Andrade was able to hang in there long enough to be saved by the bell. Great fight overall, Moras is a fucking warrior, and Andrade is a beast. Great fight, and congrats to Andrade for a hard fought unanimous decision victory. Moras deserves some extra kudos for putting up one hell of a fight for 15 minutes, when she was almost finished in the first round, considering she was the biggest underdog on the card, other than Matt Dwyer.

      YEAH! That fight was fucking NUTS! For starters, the fight was "Sneaky Zebra vs. Cheesecake" which might be the silliest nickname pairing I've ever seen. With that being said though, Sarah Moras (Cheesecake) punched the FUCK out of Dufresne (Sneaky Zebra) whenever they were standing, and even though Dufresne was able to take the fight to the ground in every round, and kept top control for more than half the fight, Moras was SO active & dangerous from her guard, that I ended up giving two rounds to Moras, and the judges agreed. I really thought Dufresne would get the win here, even though she didn't do much damage, so I'm REALLY happy that the judges gave the fight to Moras. Fucking AWESOME grappling match, and crazy striking going on during the few seconds they were both standing. Awesome fight overall.

      Pena came out swinging, backing Moras up while they moved in circles around the cage, with Pena throwing hard punches & leg kicks, and Moras throwing punches to defend herself, but she wasn't really doing much damage at all. Pena took her down 45 seconds into the round, landed inside her guard, and continued to beat her up with some more punches. The rest of the round consisted of Pena grinding the shit out of Moras, preventing her from really being able to get any offense off. Round one clearly goes to Pena.
     The second round started with Pena clinching, pressing Moras against the fence, and then she took her down about 90 seconds into the round, landing in side control. Moras tried to tie her up with her legs, but it didn't do much good. Pena chopped her up with some brutal elbows, causing blood to flow all over the mat, and then Pena slapped on a guillotine choke, and finished the fight by submission with around 90 seconds left in the round. That was another fantastic performance by Julianna Pena.

      These girls traded a lot of punches & kicks, while moving around with a lot of herky jerky footwork, with neither fighter really showing a clear advantage on the feet. Moras ducked under some punches 90 seconds into the round, and pressed Morgan against the fence in the clinch. She eventually took down Morgan, mounted her, blasted her with some heavy elbows, and then slapped on an armbar, finishing the fight by submission with around 21 seconds left in the round. That was a really strong performance by Sarah Moras as she moves on to the semifinals.

      LaRosa blasted Moras with some heavy punches early in the first round, and then Moras took her down, and slapped on a triangle choke. The second round had Moras taking LaRosa down again, and she continued to dominate LaRosa with her Jiu-Jitsu. That was a solid performance by Sarah Moras, taking out one of the old school legends of women's MMA.

      Moras took this fight to the ground in the first round, Pennington got on top, but then I thought Moras did a good job throwing strikes from her guard, so even though Pennington spent a good portion of the round on top, I gave the round to Moras based on strikes. Pennington landed some pretty good shots as well though, and showed some decent wrestling skills. The second round was more of the same, with Moras showing an active guard, but Pennington went into bully mode, and beat up Moras on the ground a bit, so I gave the second round to Pennington. She also went for a nice armbar at the end of the round. Moras got another takedown in the third round, and stayed in top position in Pennington's guard for most of the round, until the referee stood them up with 2 minutes left in the round. Pennington was able to avoid another takedown attempt, and spent the rest of the fight beating up Moras on the feet. Close fight, but I scored it 29-28 for Raquel Pennington, and for the most part the judges agreed, giving Pennington the fight via unanimous decision.
