Women's MMA trailblazer Megumi Fujii has concluded a long and successful fighting career on a sour note.

I'm confused. She got poked in the eye in the first round, but then when Aguilar kept hitting her eye, it swelled shut after an entire other round?

I watched the fight. The first eye poke caused a 2 minute or so doctor stoppage then they resumed. The 2nd eye poke caused a stoppage for 20 minutes!!

They let them resume fighting - after the 2nd round, the doctor inspected the eye again and decided to call it off

That was really frustrating to watch. They should've stopped it after the second poke. She could barely open her eye.

Tokoro got robbed too. Disappointing event, and terrible end to Megu's legacy.

Was a horrible end to the event and also to Fujii's career. This fight should not have continued after the 2nd poke. Also for Jessica to not receive a point deduction also for two eye pokes within minutes is a joke as well.

I thought the event was good overall. Kotani had a great armbar, Tokoro did get robbed, but a great fight. Uno had a great sub too...worth the re-watch
