Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: "It's all about timing and catching this girl early might just be the best idea possible!", Odette Yustman dismisses the media buzz she's going after a low-hanging fruit in Hannah Brown tonight. The former Miss Alabama made a surprise FCBA entrance back in February when she blasted out the otherwise lacklustre Cobie Smulders in seven rounds which attracted the attentions of Bazz Fight Club - clearly starved for lightweight talent following the age-induced demise of Jill Wagner, Rhona Mitra and Alana de la Garza. Someone born in Tuscaloosa should be accustomed to long-term success but can the 25-year old blonde follow the standards set by the Crimson Tide football team? Let's find out!
Odette Yustman wears black crop top with white trim, matching hotpants & blue gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a high ponytail. Hannah Brown wears a crimson crop top with white trim, black hotpants & white gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a curled ponytail. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the lightweight division.
Odette tests the inexperienced girl with a steady jabbing assault and Hannah simply prefers to see the brunette out during the opening minute even when she gets smacked straight up the middle. Odette keeps firing upstairs but begins to lose her grip once Hannah locks her high-guard before looping a half-hearted counter-punching response. This barely catches the brunette straight in the face however more missed punches from both side leave the crowd wanting a lot more. Odette still gets the better of the newcomer late in the going when she plugs her in the midsection before Brown promptly clinches her to see out the clock.
More aggression from Hannah now as she matches Odette's jabbing efforts which triggers a steady back & forth duel in the center of the ring. Neither woman displays a significant power supply until Hannah lands a nasty hook on the temple that wobbles Yustman to the side. Brown cashes in on that opportunity and slams more clean strikes to the body as she backs Odette onto the ropes where she keeps plugging away downstairs until the Lioness fighter clinches her for good. However Odette can't stay off the ropes and eats more jabs up the middle with Hannah stretching her elbows in impressive fashion.
Odette outworks Hannah in another close range dispute but still lacks that big punch and has the Alabama blonde responding in cruel fashion downstairs. Even such a bendy fighter like Yustman struggles to embrace those shots around the liver area before an accidental clash of heads earns her a much-needed respite. Hannah comes forward and tags the brunette's chin before another looping cross nails her on the nose but suddenly Yustman slips underneath the intended put away hook and bangs a heavy shot on the chest which makes Brown yelp in pain. Odette duly cleans out her tummy thereafter and drops her butt-in-ropes driving more leather into the exposed midsection. Ugh! Hannah stumbles to the side at the bell and looks to be hurting a little here.
LCA coach Eva Mendes orders a more decisive approach and Odette rattles the blonde around the ring for majority of the fourth however the shear volume of her punches doesn't break Brown's resilience. What's more the looping counter-punches catch the brunette on the mouth a little too often and leave Yustman nursing a fat lip come the two-minute mark. Another wild overhand exchange nails the brunette on the eye and wobbles her to the side with a whimper while Hannah plugs the exposed liver area and drops her foe onto the ropes. Odette tries to slug herself out of trouble but gets caught by a vicious hook on the nose AND GOES DOWN RIGHT AT THE BELL to stun the audience! Uh-oh! If this was Alabama the crowd would probably explode alas even Hannah is surprised by the knockdown! Bell saves Odette from more trouble but she still walks back to her corner on soft legs here!
Hannah powers ahead with a triple hooking combo that drops Odette onto her heels and before she can swing back from there, the former Miss Alabama SMOKES her with a brutal hook on the nose that spills the red fluid and SENDS YUSTMAN CRASHING FLAT ON HER BACK!!! Holy hell! Talk about a huge upset here!!! Odette remains spread eagle on the canvas and there's just no way back for the California native!!! KO5 Hannah Brown!!! #RollTide
AFTER: So much for trying to catch a promising upstart early! Hannah Brown appears to be the next best thing coming out of Alabama and who knows, in few years time nobody will regard this an upset. Bazz Fight Club might have found a proper replacement for their ageing lightweight brigade as Hannah finally bursts into tears of joy when her arm is raised in the air. This FCBA career is set to really take off following such a convincing victory even though some fans believe Odette should have been way more ruthless with the pageant winner and simply underestimated her blonde opponent. It's too late for a reboot though!
Official Result: Hannah Brown def. Odette Yustman KO5.
