Will Taynara Conti’s judo moves ground the high-flying Lacey Lane?
Lane darts around the ring like Spider-Man slings through Queens, gliding quickly and totally unpredictably. That exact stick-and-move, high-flying strategy allowed Lane to keep veteran brawler Vanessa Kraven off-balance in the First Round. Black-belt judoka Conti, on the other hand, stays true to her strong suit, preferring to exploit opponents’ missteps and crush them with sweeping throws, as Jessie Elaban found out in round one.
Will Lane’s thrilling aerial attack propel her deeper into the 2018 Mae Young Classic, or can the endlessly confident Conti use Lane’s momentum against her en route to snaring another win?
