Match 1
Mae Young Classic 2018 Second Round Match
Zeuxis vs Io Shirai
(referee: Eddie Orengo)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Io Shirai wins via pinfall after a diving moonsault
Time: 6:05

Match Thoughts
Good match. Zeuxis definitely put Io Shirai in more danger than Xia Brookside did, and that allowed Shirai to show a bit of her fight and resilience. I’m still waiting for them to let Shirai have a great, competitive match in this tournament, but she certainly looks strong so far.

 

Video
Deonna Purrazzo is excited to finally compete on this stage, and she plans to make Xia Li tap out.

Ring Area
Ricochet is in the front row.

 

Match 2
Mae Young Classic 2018 Second Round Match
Deonna Purrazzo vs Xia Li
(referee: Aubrey Edwards)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Deonna Purrazzo wins via submission with an arm-trap Fujiwara arm bar
Time: 5:44

Match Thoughts
Good match. Xia Li impressed me in this match. She still needs experience, but she worked well with the more experienced Purrazzo. I think their styles meshed well, and Li had the confidence to hang with her competitor. Purrazzo looked great. She looked strong, and her transitions and fluidity in her game plan made her look even more impressive.

 

Video
Nicole Matthews doesn’t care if she hurts her opponents, and Tegan Knox does what other women don’t do.

Mae Young Classic 2018 Second Round Match
Nicole Matthews vs Tegan Knox
(referee: Darryl Sharma)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Tegan Knox wins via pinfall with a shining wizard
Time: 3:45

Match Thoughts
Pretty good match. It was quite short, but I liked it alright. I’m happy with how it turned out. Tegan Knox is fun to watch.

 

Video
Kaitlyn is more confident now than when she was a champ. Mia Yim respects Kaitlyn, but Kaitlyn has never faced anyone like Yim.

 

Match 4
Mae Young Classic 2018 Second Round Match
Mia Yim vs Kaitlyn
(referee: Jessika Carr)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Mia Yim wins via submission with a knee bar
Time: 7:08

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Mia Yim came into the match with a hurt hand, and Kaitlyn had no problem taking advantage of that. This turned into a good fight with some nice submission psychology. The pace to the match was pretty high to start, and it picked up even more as the match went along. I think this was a very good final match for the second round.

 

Show Impressions
The second round continued to provide more good matches. This was a good finale to the second round.

Match of the Night
Mia Yim vs Kaitlyn
This was a fight more than any other match tonight. I liked it.
