UFC 205 is the most stacked and audacious card ever built! From the main event down to the prelims, each fight has meaning and each fighter is a contender or former champion. One of the three title fights taking place at Madison Square Garden is a truly brilliant match up between two scorching Polish Pistolas!
UFC 205 - Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs Karolina Kowalkiewicz
The champion, Joanna Jedrzejczyk is a devastating whirlwind of attrition and tenacity. 'JJ' is not only quick and precise, but she flutters in and out so effortlessly that opponents can hardly keep an eye on her let alone strike her. This Muay Thai specialist is a 12-0 undefeated champion, a merit that no other reigning champion can attest to... Stylistically, she has had hard match-ups on the road to the top, but her ability to stay off the cage all the while launching kicks and array of combination punches nullifies grapplers and strikers alike.
The challenger, Karolina Kowalkiewicz is a brooding and calculated machine, a woman who only gets stronger as the fight continues... With a wink and a thumbs up, she seals her opponent's fate and smiles to the camera. With heavy hands and constant feints, Karolina deters the takedown and forces opponents to stand and trade with her. The in and out movement does not stop, she always stays light on her feet and can deliver a head kick as fast a one-two down the middle.
'KK's' herky jerky style creates problems for counter strikers as she is practically un-hittable from outside the pocket. Her 1, 2 down the middle is devastating as she has rocked many opponents with her leaping right cross. With wins over Inoue and Namajunas, Karolina has cemented herself as one of the best straw weight fighters in the world. It would also be a mistake to forget her amazing composition on the ground and that sneaky submission game in her back pocket..
'KK' is the immovable object to 'JJ's' unstoppable force; this will be a magnificent match up of pure striking, mental fortitude, and attrition. Joanna Champion's best tools come in her front kicks to the body and head, her volume punching to the body, and her truly limitless gas tank. 'JJ's' forward pressure comes from her incredible mental fortitude, but Karolina will gladly oblige in standing and trading all night.
These are two kickboxing queens bred from Muay Thai, 'JJ' utilizes elbows, but they are not a huge weapon in either's arsenal. Joanna has shown weakness when getting pressured against the cage, and although Karolina is no wrestler, she will force the fight on to Joanna and push her into the cage to attain her lethal Thai plum. Karolina has arguably the best clinch knees in the UFC, once she attains the plum her strikes come quick and violently. At times it seems her fights are being sped up when she works in the clinch because her knees are so fast and terrifying.
These are two incredibly strong women, both physically and mentally. On paper, 'JJ' seems to be the upgraded and more experienced version of Karolina, but what Karolina lacks in experience she makes up for in heart and intransigence. Both women have shown they can not be held down, and they both use aggression and fierce emotion to make fights personal. With this fight we get a civil war, Poland divides to find their goddess of war! When all is said and done, I pick the Polish girl.
Support SteemSports Ultimate Vote Betting … together we all can win!
How to Play
Vote on the main post to enter the bet (main post rewards will also be added to the Stake Pool).
Cast your Vote Bet on ONLY ONE outcome for which you bet on for the win (Multiple comment votes will be automatically disqualified by the script, unvote and revote counts as multiple votes and will be disqualified).
After 24 hours, the post and related game comments payout to the pool; remember 25% voters rewards are deducted from the total post payout value first as per Steem curation rules. Voters are rewarded in standard fashion in proportion to their Steem Power holdings.
The Stake Pool:
The remaining 75% of the total payout is paid out in 50% Steem Power and 50% in liquid currencies, the latter now varies in payout ratio after the new fork. To make the process less complicated, we have decided to use all paid out SBD to buy Steem in the internal market to create a grand total Steem Stake Pool.
30% of the Stake Pool will be retained, of which 15% will go to the writer/sports presenter of the post, and the 15% balance towards editing, development and advertising.
70% of the Stake Pool will be held until the event/game outcome is determined.
Once the winning outcome is determined, we will execute a proprietary developed script that will divide and pay out the Steem rewards equally, using the Power Up method, to Mass Distribute SP to all participants that voted on the main post as the entrance fee as well as voted on the correct comment representing the winning outcome.
Only participants with a Reputation of 35 or more will qualify to earn SP rewards, but non-qualifiers can still vote and comment in support of the redistribution initiative.
Entry cut-off time is the earlier of the post payout or the start of the event.

@steemsports is not a traditional betting platform and no fiat currency is used as rewards or in casting bets; as such does not fall under any gaming and gambling jurisdictions; but even so, users are urged to first consult with the laws and age restrictions of their countries.
@steemsports in the unlikely event that when the Stake Pool is divided up between the winners and the nomenclature resolution goes below the third decimal place (example: 0.0001), then Steem decimal restrictions won’t allow a payout and the pool will carry over to the next game.
Please vote responsibly :).
