    Na we both like Rose but she lost a few of those rounds and won zero. You can say a few were 10-10 but there were at least 1-2 that were clear L rounds for her. Not bc Esperanza did a ton but Rose did literally nothing. One takedown won a round. She just didn't fight. Idk wtf that was.

    “Octagon control” is basically what won the fight, and I am kinda glad the judges didn’t pull the whole you have to beat the champ definitively to be the champ.

    But this still calls for the dropping of the 10-9 must rounds. This crap should’ve been a draw, and hell, strip Rose of the belt if it was a draw and have Zhang/Joanna 2 be the next title fight.

    Same. Love Rose, but you can’t reward that level of conservative in a fight.

    sorry but i’ve always put more on escaping a takedown (especially from someone at esparza’s level) with zero time on your back

    that goes all the way back to aldo in wec

    (gaethje walks out to chente just give him the fucking belt now)

    rose didn’t deserve to have her hand raised but esparza did nothing to deserve a belt around her waist

    that’s a draw and move the fuck on because it was obviously a horrible matchup

    Your Rose homer is showing here. It was a terrible fight but Esperanza won multiple rounds and Rose won zero. It can be 1 punch to 0 and still be a clear W round. It doesn't have to be a super active and dominant round to be a clear winner. Rose just did nothing and got punihes for it. Esperanza got rewarded for doing just a tick more. Wasn't much, but it was more.

    because of her takedowns?

    again, rose was on her feet and back to doing nothing within a second of each

    rose’s strength is her striking

    she did nothing with it

    esparza’s strength is her wrestling

    she did nothing with it

    it seems like you think that i’m saying rose won

    not at all i’m saying that was the very definition of a draw and 10 point musts are fucking stupid

    I think we just disagree on what wins a round. To me, one takedown/punch is enough to win a round if the other person does literally nothing the entire round. They don't have to be dominant for it to be a clear round winner when the other person does nothing.

    One is still active, one is retired, and the active one is the bigger draw and payday. And the retired one is waaaaaay better.

    Islam’s striking is nowhere near Oliveira’s at this point.

    It’s just is if Islam’s wrestling is so dominant that he can smother Oliveira for 5 rounds without also getting submitted by one of the GOAT BJJ fighters in the sport’s history.

    Nobody deserves to be champ after that fight, and Rose’s mindset fluctuates so much each fight.

    lol her responses indicate a troubling mindset, she basically said "I'm the champ, she had to clearly beat me" and a lot of times that's true but I don't think fighter's should ever have that mindset unless they've been beating the shit out of someone for 4 rounds and they use that stalling like approach in the fifth. She gave herself no margin for error by basically doing nothing the entire fight.

    That rose fight was so bad I fell asleep and missed the main event. That rematch should be free on ESPN.
