    Carla Esparza came up just short at UFC 225, dropping a split decision to strawweight contender Claudia Gadelha. The fight was close, but most media outlets had Gadelha taking the decision. Unsurprisingly, Esparza doesn’t agree, but she also has another major bone to pick - she believes that Gadelha cheated. She spoke about it on The MMA Hour today:

    “She cheated in the fight; she greased before the fight. I was considering saying something to the referee in between [rounds]. I was going to say, ‘She’s greasing! She’s greasing’, but I didn’t really know how to go about it.”

    ...

    “It’s pretty shady to me. I re-watched the fight and my hands were slipping right off. Even when I was trying to grab armbars…

    She is so fn dumb to say that

    Lets think about it as if it was real.

    Your opponent is cheating & a ref is there with you & you want to tell the ref but don't know "how"?
    You decide to keep it to yourself & think that is the better idea & then bitch on social media

    Also the UFC has mics on the corners, so I guess she did not know how to tell her team either

    STFU CARLA

    I never liked her since TUF & when she said the week of her first (FIRST) title defense that she was taking time off after being JJ because she works too hard.

    Man, I’ve liked you since day 1........how the fuck can someone even think it’s ok to say this. If this was said during an interview, just say someone hacked your brain and made you say it....if it was twitter for email, claim hacked account

    I finally watched this fight, and it was either a draw or 29-28 Esparza. Even though it's not always the case, Claudia's face was indicative of what actually took place in the fight. I also scored the Benavidez fight 29-28, for what that's worth. As far as greasing goes, It wouldn't shock me, but if I were Carla that wouldn't be my main focus at the moment.

    Why the hell do people bitch about greasing? How is that any different from getting covered in vaseline before a fight? You dont want to get cut, dont get hit.

    Yeah I didnt get that at all.... MAYBE if ur an amateur in your debut fight and that is a big maybe
    that I can see this happening. Carla is a seasoned vet and her team are seasoned vets.

    This makes fuck all sense

    I find this excuse very lame. We see each corner in between rounds, they check them before the fight, can hear the corners.

    Can see where GSP’s greasegate got flake. That was right on camera, can see it being applied to the shoulders. Believe that was accidental, but nevertheless, was on camera.

    Not so long ago they stopped before to wipe one of the fighter’s down. Believe it was Romero, but think thats because they splashed water all over him or something. Point is, they see all that shit. More so now. For fuck sakes they watch for “distanced traveled” and something infrared? Stats are funny now aren’t they?

    Easy to bypass the check before the fight. You apply the oild a day or two before hand. That way, it's absorbed inyour your skin, and only appears when you start sweating.


    That was two years apart, and she never explicitly asked anyone for money. She was selling the motorcycle she won for making Rose look like an amateur.

    Didn’t know that either, but if thats something fans know, I almost positive the trained proffessionals know, or would have a more solid eye out for that kind of thing.
