Holly Hype Holm does probably have more technical striking than most men... it's the other stuff that's the problem.

Karo does NOT do the same thing as Ronda. He is a high level judoka who trained with Ronda but Ronda's mom had her focus quite a bit on mat work ... especially submissions, ...

Karo has had some fantastic throws, but then looks around to see if he can ground and pound or maybe pull a sub.

Ronda is like a sub machine. Takedown leads almost immediately to mount, and as quick as mount is attained the attack on an arm comes, ...

Very few judo players who have entered MMA, male or female, have displayed this type of finish focus such as Ronda has displayed.

Ronda's game isn't even a popular style for Olympic Judoka's. She's very unique.

What makes you think a better judoka would beat her?

Conor's reach doesn't extend beyond those who already pay for the product.

(GSP) has established himself as #1. Over Anderson and everyone else. Including Fedor.

Like I said, I am interested to see how Cyborg performs in her 135 debut this year. If she performs well, the real fight fans will be happy!

All these mma and bjj based women's fighters seem to think they have that secret ingredient to beat Ronda, but I think it's going to have to be a fighter that can beat Ronda at her own game.
You are looking at it the wrong way.
A female judoka likely to beat Rousey in MMA would not have or need a better judo resume than Rousey.

She would need to simply be better at MMA.
Good wrestlers neutralize great wrestlers in MMA all the time because of better striking, better transitions, better application, better fight IQ or all of the above.
