Without being confused by the opinions of those in the seat, Velázquez (12-0 MMA, 7-0 BMMA) won the split decision by turning from a kickboxer to an MMA fighter, and the judge did it right. I’m sure I understood. Dennis Kielholtz..
“In the first round, she got stronger,” Velázquez told MMA Junkie at a post-war press conference. “She was able to get closer and hit me, but I was away. Many of those shots were missing. It was a close combat, but as the fight progressed, I got a little more of my own. I was able to find the ditch. I was able to stop her in her footsteps.
“I think it’s been much more effective since the third round. I was very confident when they announced the decision. I think the third round was mine.”
After the fight, Kielholtz (6-3 MMA, 6-2 BMMA) expressed disappointment with the decision and called for a rematch. However, the champion is unaware of the need for a second meeting. At least you don’t need a meeting with Kielholtz.
“If I’m going to rematch with someone I deserve, it’s Ilima-Lei (McFarlane),” Velázquez told MMA Junkie. “She had a lot of title defenses. After this fight I just move forward …. I think the most sensible fight will be the fight against Ilima Ray or Liz Carmouche. Is the (next) fight I want to do. “
McFarlane (11-1 MMA, 10-1 BMMA), who has recovered from knee surgery, has not been competing since losing the Velázquez title due to a unanimous decision in December. As for Carmoush (16-7 MMA, 3-0 BMMA), she was undefeated in promotion and recently defeated Kana Watanabe in a 35-second TKO.
