This might be the first women's title fight Dana doesn't have a horse in

I'm assuming Ronda, Cyborg did beat Gina.

If Gina won it'd make it seem the top female fighter is unsigned by the UFC.

Dana is IN love with Rousey.
He only loves Gina like a friend.

You do the math.

I don't think Dana cares. If Ronda wins, her star power continues to grow and the torch gets passed to her from Gina. However if Gina wins, no matter how she does it, they have the biggest rematch in women's history on their hands and a huge PPV buyrate.

Absolute win/win situation although Gina winning may be even better for business.

Lol at all you people gina will never make weight she never has made 135 before after 5 year lay off all of sudden she makes weight ? Only thing appearing about that fight is the weight in as this fight is not competitive or interesting.

Plenty of people said Lesnar was a sideshow, freak, and was only being brought in to sell tickets.....which he was....and he did.
His inexperience got him subbed in the first round. Not to mention most assumed Mir was damaged goods after the accident at that point. The first Mir fight was seen as a test of Lesnar's abilities.

Ronda is a dominate champ who happens to be tearing through her division, facing a fighter coming off a 5 year layoff. Make as many excuses as you want, but this fight is not being made based on the expectations that Gina is the best opponent possible. You can't possibly think a title shot is warranted after 5 years off. This is a desperate and cheap way to get PPV buys.
