Andrews: The focus now shifts to the #5 and #12 fighters.

31-year-old #12 Angela Magana (11-6-0) has overcome a lot of adversity to make it into the TUF 20 house. She comes across as confident and determined, because, well, when you’ve broken your back and suffered the death of your fiancee, you probably feel you can overcome anything.

But #5 Aisling Daly (14-5-0) is no pushover. There is something about the Irish fighters. From Joanne Calderwood to Conor McGregor, they seem to have the fighting enthusiasm locked down.

She said she suffers from anxiety and depression and I think that will help so many people who suffer in silence to seek treatment.

She also thinks she’s going to win. Surprise, surprise.

Round One went to Magana. She took Daly down, took the back, went for submissions and yet the referee decided to stand them up after the failed armbar attempts.

Daly benefited from that standup as she could have been finished. Instead, she survives to turn the tables on Magana in Round Two.

That leaves Round Three and sudden victory, but the starch is gone. Daly flattens her out on the ground and the referee stops it.

It’s 6-0 for Team Pettis and Gilbert Melendez is privately blowing his stack.

He has a legitimate beef with the ref standing Magana’s dominant position in the first round.

But now he has to prepare #7 Rose Namajunas (Pat Barry’s fiancee) against Team Pettis #10 Alex Chambers. I personally think Rose has what it takes to beat Alex and it will come down to those fine details.
