This strawweight action was all about exchanging punches to the face and a few submission attempts. But mostly two ladies trying to punch their way out. Aldrich was not afraid of Viana’s ground game and did venture into that territory to test her own ground skills. Vianna was unable to put pressure and get any kind of submission though she won her last fight via submission. With her hands down way low, Viana was susceptible to the jabs from Aldrich. Every time she stepped in ate a jab from Aldrich and her head snapped back and forth. A very important lesson for Viana who just can’t rely on her BJJ to win future fights as the ladies of strawweight division can surely bang.
