Vieira vs Tate UFC
Former UFC women's bantamweight champion Miesha Tate got most of the attention all week but in the end Ketlen Vieira got the victory turning in a solid, workman-like performance to decision Tate in Saturday's UFC Fight Night main event from Las Vegas. Known primarily as a grappler, since returning to the octagon from a near five-year layoff Tate's supposedly reinvented herself adding improved striking skills. But she still appeared awkward in the stand-up often fighting with her hands wide apart which left her vulnerable to Vieira's stiff jabs.

Tate had trouble with Vieira's superior height and reach all fight, frequently having to leap forward to throw her strikes. Though she landed some, Vieira punished her with hard counter shots. Ignoring her corner's advice to bring the fight to Tate, Vieira allowed the former title holder to come forward throughout. But it was Vieira who consistently landed the more damaging blows. She hit Tate with a big knee to the body in the final round and followed up with a right hand that had blood gushing from Tate's nose. By the end of the fight Tate's face was a crimson mask as Vieira took the unanimous decision.

One can argue that left-handedness is a phenomena to which science is still trying to find its cause. It is estimated that there are around 10-14% of left-handed people in today's world, men being double in number than women. Science hasn't yet found the cause that makes a person left-handed, i.e. we still don't know what makes a person to be born left-handed or right-handed. Some research points to an anomaly in brain structure, whereas some other research and theories talk about genetic inheritance as well as the influence of the hormone testosterone. This would explain why there are so many more left-handed men in comparison to women. Recently, in 2007, scientists from Oxford University have identified the gene which rises the chances of a person to become left-handed.
