Ham is better for the tournament anyways more fun to watch.. Denice was a drag

She Also landed the cleaner punches in all exchanges .. Denice just throws wide hay makers and single shots. And once she got clipped she just pressed her on the fence for too long doing nothing while ham lands small but counted strikes to her body. Overall, im actually glad they don't score that wet blanket hold against the fence **** in one Championship

Denise sloppy and uneffective as hell. Ham clearly the more talented fighter, but an undeniably low-effort performance from her here. She's better than that - most definitely. 

Commentators were piss poor in that fight. Acknowledged everything Denise did, barely mentioned the literal #1 atomweight in the world Ham. Was some Joe Rogan & Dominick Cruz ****. Awful.
