Nathiely de Jesus | Performance of the Week


Nathiely De Jesus was a big underdog against Gabi Garcia and while they were civil and mutually respectful leading up to the match Garcia was fired up and frustrated by comments from rivals. 

That meant Nathi had to bear the brunt of Garcia's frustration, but she weathered the storm and had an answer for every attack and was able to hit various counter attacks oh her own and even secure key positions en route to a unanimous judge’s decision. Not many people can hope to last even a few minutes with Garcia, let alone face off with her for 15 mins when she’s in a fury.
