Paulina Ramirez defeats Stephanie Frausto

Paulina "Sweetness" Ramirez (2-0-0) defeated Stephanie "Macaquinha" Frausto (2-3-0) by Split Decision (29-28, 29-28, 28-29)

That fight was a pretty good one. The first round was almost entirely clinchwork and Paulina was clearly much stronger than Stephanie. However, Stephanie landed a nice flurry in the final seconds and I felt that that (plus some solid knees in the clinch) might be enough to barely steal the round.

Stephanie clearly won round two and Paulina easily won the final round. It all came down to round one and the judges favoured the cage control over Stephanie's late flurry. To be honest, I had Paulina winning round one all the way up until the end and probably should have given her the 10-9. Stephanie's flurry only partly landed anyway.
