Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: sometimes passing just isn't an option.

Also Valentina is getting talked up as Nunes' next challenger, but I think Pennington has earned her shot imo

Pennington is clever but iirc injuries have been nagging her forever. Also Miesha Tate stinks and is now physically shot so I don't put too much weight into Rocky beating that rear end.

I don't think she's all that bad.

This may be true, but even assuming it is, why is she a worse win than Julianna Pena?

In general, I do not take wins over "ranked WMMA bantamweight" to mean anything because the fighters in the division are so flawed. This is a case where the fighter with 2 wins on free TV main events should get the shot over some nobody.

Lol, keep up? Shields thoroughly outgrappled Maia, imo it wasn't especially close.

It was a split decision where neither fighter took much damage from strikes or was in danger of being submitted. Neither guy even managed to establish a dominant position for any particular length of time. I agree Shields clearly won, because he made Maia play his game and mostly got the better of him, but I didn't want to overstate it.

Nick doesn't really grapple like Jake so I mentioned it mostly because Shields must have had some insight into how to stop Maia from getting enough control to strike from the top or advance his position. They just wound up flowing between positions and sweeping eachother round after round.

Maia has improved a lot at imposing his game since he lost to Shields and Rory in my opinion, im not sure he wouldnt still lose to those guys though, but he would be a favorite against Nick

I really like the BJJ Scout breakdowns of Maia and I wish he'd do one of Maia-Shields. I'm not sure if Maia got better afterward or if his game is about the same and Shields just had his number. I definitely see the Rory fight as a learning experience, because of how he horrendously he gassed trying to finish after mounting MacDonald in the first. Since that one I think he's been better about staying cool and working methodically so he has something left for later rounds.

I need to rewatch (hahaha, not) but from memory I thought both guys did ok but jake had way more time on top.

He Maia'd Maia just like Maia Fitch'd Fitch.
E: not as dominant but still enbarassing

He still gassed ferociously against LaFlare.

in fact he gassed so hard he got a timidity penalty for being too tired to stand up in a reasonable length of time. but that was a five-round contest and the collapse happened later. He also gassed bad when he fought Brown, but he still had enough left to finish deep in the third. When he fought Rory IIRC he was gassed ending the first first round, the second he had slowed a lot and couldn't finish his takedowns, but he kept trying and burned all his energy so he was dead on his feet in the third. So he improved at least a little.

I was just reading an article about Tecia Torres and it referred to her "partner" Raquel Pennington and I googled "Torres Pennington" and it seems that they got married after Pennington beat up Meisha Tate:

This makes me happy, even if I find Tecia Torres unbearable inside the cage.

I sometimes read Breitbart comments to drive myself crazy and they called President Obama pajama boy a lot. Maybe they were implying he is secretly a BJJ enthusiast. This changes everything.

Actually it makes perfect sense that Obama would be a smart, patient, artful combatant with years of study who constantly gets his head caved in by neo nazi's from the heartland because he assumed they would eventually end up in his territory
