Same! But I think Joanna will be too much unfortunately.

I can't believe I've doubted her (Rose) in the past against a couple of other tough women. But JJ's just in that group of fighters that I won't pick against. Her, Mighty Mouse and Bones I think are the only 3 right now.

But War Rose!


Back when Rose was with Invicta and she pulled off that crazy flying armbar are tweeted her and told her she's got the SOTY in the bag. She's been following me ever since. Which is cool because I rarely ever tweet. I'm kinda more into FB atm.

Joanna should win, but Rose is creative, I think her style will give Joanna some problems. Joanna has faced mostly grapplers.

That's really cool of her.

Yeah it is really cool of her. Her, Cruickshank, Mike Richmond and Kevin Lee all followed me.

And then when Lee got signed he stopped. But what do you expect from Lee. He's like the #1 local fighter i dislike. Not just because of that either. Need i say more.

Damn they're pretty desperate in that division, huh?

Rose presents an interesting challenge because of her ground skills, but I don't know if she'll be able to get it there without eating a shit ton of punches from Joanna. Just a win over Waterson is all she needed. She just lost to Karolina but like I said, they are pretty desperate for girls for her to fight.

JJ is running into the same issues as Mighty Mouse. Its new blood. That's about the only logic behind it.

I just don't see a universe in which Rose wins. It sucks because I, like everyone else is a fan of hers. JJ is just too well rounded and experienced to lose that belt IMO. Rose definitely could be champ but in the years to come. She is young, hungry, but far too green.

Yeah, I would have liked to see her win at least 2 fights in a row though. She is just coming off a loss to Karolina who loss to JJ decisively. I know styles make fights, but Rose isn't exactly the wrestler to get the fight where she wants it to be. Her striking is unorthodox but I just see her being a human punching bag for Joanna unless she can pull off a slick sub early.
