A Woman Who Can Stand and Bang

Sarah Kaufmann outstrikes Shayna Baszler, who is admittedly a good submission fighter. Shayna needs to work on her striking; she got outboxed and it dazed her. She also gassed early, which Sarah did not. Sarah clearly was the smarter fighter, finding her range and forcing Shayna to sit in her pocket and take a beating while also pacing herself. Baszler seems to have relied too heavily on her submission abilities and got comfortable.

Also, the Strikeforce referees appear to be mostly idiots who don’t understand when groundfighting should be stood up. Almost as much so as that idiot announcer who thinks every inside leg kick is a cut kick and every overhook, with or without an attempt at a leg reap/sweep/hip toss, is a whizzer
