Miranda Granger


No-shows loss in Vegas
November 14, 2020
Granger lost to Ashley Yoder via unanimous decision (26-30, 27-29, 27-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
This was a strange, strange fight. The one constant throughout the course of the 15-minute bout was Granger's inability to generate any offense whatsoever. She and Yoder spent nearly the entirety of the first ten minutes of the fight rolling around on the mat accomplishing nothing. The difference between the two women was that Yoder picked up the paced in Round 3 while Granger remained stationary. It's a bad look for a fighter who entered as a hefty -165 favorite. Yoder had really struggled of late and Granger had nothing for her. There's not much to get excited about here.
