Results: Lookout!; Story: Vassago
BEFORE: There was a time when Kaia Gerber was allegedly in line to take over Kelly Rohrbach's VIXENs roster spot before she eventually settled for a high-profile shot with the Syndicate which left Kelly exclusively fuming at Nina Agdal instead. But more on that later... Meanwhile Kelly remains upbeat she's not demoted to JMDD-only work and still has a genuine chance of upsetting some high-flying youngsters like Kaia who's come a long way since sweeping the VIX carpets when she started out fourteen months ago: "I remember that skinny kid, she was typical lanky teenager who couldn't punch herself out of a wet paper bag! And my oh my, look at her NOW! She wants to be a player? Based off beating fellow Instagram models? Or Anne Hathaway? Get real, she's not ready for prime-time and she's not ready for ME either!"
Kelly Rohrbach wears a silver bikini set with red trim & red gloves. Long blonde hair tied in a half-up ponytail. Kaia Gerber wears a tangerine one-piece swimsuit & brown gloves. Long dark brown hair tied in a braid. The fight is scheduled for ten rounds in the lightweight division.
Kaia comes in hot and splits Kelly's high guard to trigger a proper slugging exchange in the early going - which kinda catches the blonde off guard as Kaia's extremely effective in landing her shots upstairs. That's the youthful exuberance money can't buy and Kelly learns it the hard way when her head snaps back repeatedly and the teenager simply keeps thumping her straight up the middle. Huh! Kelly has to bail out of the slugging jam however Gerber lashes out after her regardless and rattles her on each temple before driving one harpoon into her gut. Kelly drops on the ropes and soaks up more punishment as Gerber underlines her dominance with more ruthless jabs that bury the blonde behind a tight earmuff come the final stretch.
Kaia has truly come a long way over the last twelve months and she maintains the high-octane drive to give Kelly more slugging trouble early in the second. However the older model matches her execution this time and bangs one cruel hook after another as both women slug it out upstairs for a while. Kaia tries to sneak in for the body assault but skims off Rohrbach's hip and gets countered from the inside which throws her off the aggressive haze. She wobbles to her heels and allows Kelly to clip her on the chin several times before a booming right hand nails her on the nose and sends spinning onto the ropes. Kelly leaps after the teenager with more jabbing menace but gets clinched along the ropes as Kaia shows some core strenght in the process.
More slugging attack from Gerber but this time she bounces off a brick wall and gets whacked over the top as Rohrbach grazes her with a forearm as well before carrying a right hook on the nose. Another looping shot catches the teenager on the lips and sinks her on soft knees while Kelly steps up and drives a right hook on the solar plexus THAT FOLDS KAIA DOWN ON HER KNEES! Huh! That almost came out of nowhere and GBS coach Cindy Crawford is furious that her daughter got dropped by such a dirty combo pointing to the forearm punch which started the whole sequence. However Kaia gathers her thoughts uber-quickly like any menacing teenager would! She's up at six and seeks immediate revenge only for Rohrbach to blast her up the middle again! And Kaia has to put some wheels to escape trouble as Kelly hassles her around the ring and threatens to blow up with more aerial efforts. She takes the round wide and most experts believe she will take it from here with ease!
Kaia tries to respond immediately but eats too many crisp punches up the middle and has to drop back into mid-range which allows Kelly to score artistic impression marks as she peppers the brunette's high-guard and makes her look spooked out there. The teenager's slugging effort goes away and while she avoids true punishment, she's unable to dictate the pace in mid-range and gives evidence that counter-punching is not her forte at all. Meanwhile Kelly keeps her poise and doesn't rush her attacks; she prefers to outbox the fellow model with that knockdown firmly in her back pocket. In fact coach Claudia Schiffer is a little upset about Kelly not pressing ahead but the Connecticut native claims "I know what I'm doing!" during the interval.
Here comes Gerber... she resumes the slugging drill and forces Rohrbach to respond in equally ruthless fashion but this time the blonde meets her match and skims off the top of Kaia's forehead before eating a nasty uppercut combo that wobbles her to the side. Kaia fakes the switch downstairs and bounces into the blonde's face again to trigger a proper head-hunting rush that overwhelms the older model and pancakes her onto the ropes somewhat against the script! Huh! Kaia drives her mitts into Kelly's rack thereafter and traps her on the turnbuckle before dropping that harpoon blast on the exposed ribcage after all. Kelly lands a couple of uppercuts in response but fails to tame the teenager's charge and slumps into loud spasms when Gerber whacks her on the solar plexus for a good measure.
Kelly misfires on the head-hunting approach and eats more uppercut fury as Kaia suddenly snaps her head back & forth before crushing a left hook on the ear that DROPS THE BLONDE ONTO HER KNEES literally twenty seconds into the sixth! You just can't overlook that youthful exuberance no matter what! Lanky Kaia dances on her toes and high-fives her mother as the Lioness entourage stares down the come-from-behind drama. Kelly puffs her swollen lips and wisely takes the count all the way until eight... she gets up and throws a proper death stare at the GBS corner... "Want some more, bytch?", oh Kaia is sooo ready to clean up the blonde bimbo! And she races clear to connect with Kelly's face... RIGHT HAND OVER THE TOP GETS THERE FIRST!!! Kelly beats the charging brunette for the punch and NAILS her with an uppercut double that even Cindy Crawford didn't see coming. Kaia drops on her heels with eyes closed and doesn't even notice a brutal right hook on the ear THAT PUTS HER AWAY on the spot. DOWN GOES GERBER!!! And she's been rendered unconcious by that wicked last punch! All over!!! KO6 Kelly Rohrbach!!!
AFTER: Wild scenes in the ring as Cindy has totally lost her temper after seeing her daughter knocked the hell out! She wants a piece of Kelly but flinches when the blonde threatens to send her tumbling over and thinks better off it. She signals for the GBS medical crew to attend to the fallen teenager but the reality bites the upstart contender hard tonight! Kaia thought she had this won after decking Rohrbach seconds in the sixth and somehow got carried away and lost it all in the end. Kelly points to her numerous sparring sessions with Hannah Ferguson who admittedly "punches way harder than Kaia will ever be able to do" hwoever she quickly turns her attentions to a mouth-watering VIX PPV meeting with one Nina Agdal: "Look, Kaia was fun but she was never a real threat. The fact VIX chose Nina Agdal over me is the original crime that needs to get punished! Watch out, Stevie boy, I'm coming to ruin your creampuff doll... AGAIN!!!"
Official Result: Kelly Rohrbach def. Kaia Gerber KO6.
