MMA SQUARED: The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of UFC 237

A new thing we’re trying out here on MMA SQUARED.

The Good: Rose Namajunas is everything TUF hyped her to be. A slow & steady maturation process gave way to a vicious & humble champion facing her greatest challenge yet. Keep your eyes open before she retires to run a vegetable farm with her dog.

More Good: The challenger, Jessica Andrade, shared MMA Squared’s KO of the Year award with her Wanderlei Silva vs Sakuraba style flattening of Karolina Kowalkiewicz.

The Bad: Not like *bad* bad. Like Bad Motherf—ker bad. That’s what Alexander Volkanovski vs Jose Aldo is on Saturday. Here we see the Australian retiring Chad Mendes with his fists.

The Ugly: oh BJ Penn, what have you done?

Officially known as the Carpenter (hence the sledgehammer), affectionately known as a Caveman , Clay Guida has been tasked with smashing BJ Penn like a ship against the rocks on the shores of the Nostalgia Ocean (I should stick to visual metaphors).

This is Chris @RiniMMA and thank you for reading MMA Squared.

Take care of yourself and I’ll talk to you tomorrow about a special project I’ve been preparing.
