Would be ****** up if rakoczy won the 135lb TUF title and then dropped down to 115lbs when dana opens that division. She has already said shes planning on trying to make the drop since shes a small 135er

I would have preferred a sub, but Pena was in full she-beast mode.

Really Yamasaki...with like 5 secs left? After she was in that position for like 2 mins already...you stink.

I was hoping it'd go into the second and that would happen, to give me the perfect.  I'm not really a fan of Pena but I really wanted Team Rousey to lose

Rakoczy left her arms all up in the air, perfect chance for an armbar. Saw a few chances for an arm triangle as well. But i guess when you are dropping bombs like that on your opponent theres no need to go for a sub. A TKO stoppage is just as good.

I played almost 4 hours of poker and still not the final bout. J. Pena destroyed her like I said she would. Rakoczy was just one dimensional striker while Pena is pretty good all around. Team Tate takes both titles. Way to go Cupcake!
