This. If Amanda beats a top 5 person, especially by TKO, she moves to the short line of potential challengers. But so far, the biggest win of her career is probably Julia Budd.
Would she stand a chance against Ronda? Hmmm...she has KO power and so, has a puncher`s chance. But look at Nunes's losses - Alexis Davis, Sarah D`Alelio. These are fighters that are known as good grapplers with a suffocating style. This seems to be Nunes's weak area...and it happens to be the area where Ronda is the best. So, I think Nunes would get a swing or two and then get taken down and...y`know, armbarred. I`d still rather see this fight than Rousey-Carano.
