Last night at UFC 185 two champions were dethroned. UFC lightweight champion Anthony Pettis got dominated by Rafael dos Anjos for 25 minutes and womens strawweight champion Carla Esparza didn’t even make it that long, losing to Joanna Jedrzejczyk via TKO in the second round. Check out what the MMA community had to say about the new strawweight champ via Twitter!
“Joanna champion” no one needs to know her last name now. Great placement on her strikes and consistent stuffing the hips #ufc185
