It has always been my gut that Rousey would win the first, and McMann would win the rematch. And hopefully Ronda does a third before retiring to Lollaland Hollywood

which is funny, because Ronda is just a better talent, if she trained wrestling she would probably be as good at McMann at it, maybe better, who knows.

just look at all the UFC champs with wrestling backgrounds....ovder half of the mens champs have wrestling base. one judo champ, especially in the weakest UFC division, doesnt mean jacksquat

I'm a die hard Ronda fan and I'll never root against her, but I like McMann, she's a sweet heart, and a legitimate fighter in the women's division.

You clearly underestimate Ronda's BJJ - even from the bottom. And yeah, Rousey WILL get McMann down. I'll bump this when the fight is over, to see which one of us was correct...

Rousey makes McMann tap due to arm bar. In the second round.

I chuckle at the people who think that wrestling is somehow superior to judo. It isn't. Not when you have a world class judoka such as Rousey. And please talk about that Silver medal in wrestling that McMann won. Exactly how many participants from how many different countries participated in the first ever women's wrestling at the Olympics where McMann went 2-2 to win a silver medal? I thought so. She went 1-1 to GET to the semis FFS. Ronda is simply on another level with respect to Judo, a sport that had a LOT more countries participating - so her Bronze Medal is far more impressive. At least if you understand how each woman got there...

Lifelong Judoka beats Wrestler since High school.

How close can Ronda get with an armbar or any sub from buttom? Close back and forth fight can McMann win 3 of 5? Split? Drama? Boards blowing up? oh my
