Jasmine Jasudavicius on Gabriella Fernandes “Basic but Obviously Talented”

Jasmine Jasudavicius tests skills with Gabriella Fernandes at UFC Fight Night: Krylov vs. Spann on February 25th. This flyweight fight is the featured prelim bout and emanates from UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Jasudavicius once again appeared on Bowks Talking Bouts and discussed the lessons learned from what feels like her first true pro-MMA loss, cross-training at American Top Team lately, and so much more. Excerpts from our chat are below.

The stylistic amendments needed when switching from opponents here from Cortney Casey to Gabriella Fernandes. Plus, Jasudavicius’ thoughts on Fernandes’ stylistic attributes

“Yeah you know obviously this chick, she’s a southpaw and my prior opponent wasn’t a southpaw. So obviously a little bit different there but I mean, nothing crazy…Last time, my opponent, we didn’t know anything. She hadn’t fought for two years or anything like that. So we knew nothing about her. Now it’s nice fighting this girl because there is tape on her. I get to see her last two fights and my coaches, they get to watch her and see her fight. It’s definitely good.”

“She’s a big kicker, a lot of head kicks… She’s a southpaw kicker. Pretty basic but obviously talented. Looks like she throws hard. But yeah I mean, if you’re breaking it down to the nuts and bolts, southpaw kicker.”

Jasudavicius’ experience working at American Top Team with Michelle Montague and Kayla Harrison relatively recently

“Yeah, I was just in Florida for the last like three and a half-four weeks, something like that. I was at ATT training there. So I supplemented my training there but now I’m home to fine-tune. To kind of dot all the I’s and cross all the T’s. Then right into fight week… That was an awesome experience. The room’s deep and they’ve got a ton of talented, talented women there. All around my same size. It’s nice because I can go with the ’15ers but then I can still go with the ’35ers too. Because you know being at ’25, it’s very good for me.”
