Wait hadnt Dana all but confirmed it was gona be Miesha tate again ? And why in the heck would they give it to Holy Holmes when they couldve given it to Amanda Nunes who at least might last more than 5 seconds, Holy is a boxer primarely Rhonda will arm bar her before the fight even starts.

You are giving too much credit to the people of the webs. They only understand "/joke".

I'll say it will last 30 seconds with Ronda TKOing Holly. In my opinion, Holly should fight a few more times before fighting Rowdy. As far as Tate goes, she's already had 2 shots at Rowdy, other fighters should have a crack at Ronda.

Like I said, Holm is a world class striker and has too good of a fight IQ to come rushing towards Rousey allowing her to get caught in a flurry or quick throw. She will use her striking to try staying at a distance, avoid the clinch and pick Rousey apart.

Rousey will most likely win, perhaps in the first round but I don't see it being another 30 second finish.

Hmm. Ronda is alot more aggressive than most MMA fighters and forces others to fight at close range. I'm sure the majority of the fighters she fought had the same game plan to fight. Holly will have a chance at beating Ronda if Rousey decides to keep the fight standing which she's been doing in the last couple of fights. 

I believe that Holly would be better off training to fight at close range/clinch and countering Ronda's throws over banking on keeping her distance from Ronda.

Ronda won't KO Holly standing Zero chance, she wins by sub in under 1 min.



The worst part is that Dana wants Tate vs Nunes great logic in putting the the only real title contenders in a fight.



With only 2 fights in the UFC (one split and one close decision), it's too soon for Holm's title shot, but apparently she was prepared to fight Rousey after the Tate III rematch.

I haven't seen anything from Holm that convinces me she's the type of counter puncher who can knock out someone with Rousey's chin as she moves to clinch. Holm's strongest coming forward aggressively, leading with the hands and typically finishing combos with a high kick. Backing up, she's not nearly as dangerous. Despite her professional boxer roots, she has really taken to a kick boxer style with a fair amount of knees and elbows thrown into the mix, but again most of this is best displayed as the aggressor.

Her take down defense is largely untested, which is key if she plans on playing to her best shot at winning.

The perfunctory prediction is a round one submission via arm bar. Holm won't rush Rousey since she'll be weary of the take down and Rousey isn't going to blitz Holm so this one stands a good chance of extending beyond the first minute.

Tate is getting Nunes, which is no consolation prize, but a strong performance strengthens her cause for another rematch. Given that she was supposed to get this rematch after winning her last fight, one can't help but consider this to be unfair, but... the UFC is simply going with what they can most easily promote rather than giving any fighters who aren't box office draws their due.

Tate put up a way better fight than Nunes did but Tate has lost to Ronda twice already. Both should be "trial by fire" fighters to test the up and comers.



Holly Holm reacts to Ronda Rousey title fight: 'UFC wants to test me out'

"Maybe it's one of those things where they just want to test me out, kind of throw me out there," Holm said Friday on FOX Sports 1's "America's Pregame" (via MMA Fighting). "Maybe it's because they really feel I'm ready. I don't really care too much of the why. I just want to make the best of the situation."

"I think she knows that in beating me that even says more about her stand up," said Holm. "For a long time so many people were always just talking about her armbar. I think that she wanted to prove to them she has more than that, which she has done just that. So this is a big opportunity for her to really show people what she's made of."
