Smith recounts the finish…
MMAjunkie spoke with UFC women's bantamweight fighter Leslie Smith following her first round knockout over Jessamyn Duke at UFC Fight Night 45 last night. Below are some highlights.
Smith on what she was thinking to finish the fight: "I think – here's as best as I can remember. Maybe if I watch it, I'll do a little bit better. But, I feel like I hit her, and I was ‘OK, be patient for the next one.' And then I was like ‘Wait! It's now. This is the time.' And then I hit her, and I was like ‘Dude! Is it happening?' And she was covering up, and I was like ‘I think it's happening!' I was like ‘More! More!' And then she went down, and I was like ‘Yes!'"
Smith recounting the finish for the fight: "I was punching her in the face, and then I threw a right, and I moved over to the side, and I threw a left high kick to her head. That kind of brought her up top, and then I hit the body after that, and that bent her over, and I was looking for the knee to the body as she went down."
