Pena, Nunes, Cat, Correia, and a Mcmann rematch.

Stop worrying about marketing. Youre a fan so just enjoy the fights. Leave the marketing and buy rate crap to people who get paid for that.

I dont understand this obsession with mma fans and promotional crap. You dont see fans in other sports saying "yes we have good players, but we really need to sign more marketable guys to get the ratings up" who the hell cares

I hate how people who know jack shit latch onto a popular name and think she's a world beater. Exact same shit happens w/ Holly Holm who's opponents have been hand picked.

Frankly I think Miesha Tate can probably beat Carano and everybody knows what I think of Miesha.
i really dont think your opinions are that important around here to where people chronicle your individual takes on fighters

Ronda is close to obtaining Floyd status. Once she beats Zingano, and if Holm can't land a strike early; people will lose interest in paying for her.

The only reason Cyborg would choose Bellator over the UFC is because she fails to make BW. She is attempting to make 135 so that she can get into the UFC to fight Rousey. Rousey is the fight she wants and she has to go to the UFC to get that. She has already beat Carano and Coenen, so there would be no need to follow them to Bellator. As long as she makes weight and wins her next fight, I'm sure she will be UFC bound.

the jaguars and Bucs do that sometimes, but they have other issues too.
