WTF are you talking about, 'then a few contender fights'....??

One tune-up fight... then Ronda.

If Gina just gets close to what she was before, it's probably the best fight out there, other than Cyborg.

If you have a small contract UFC will smother you with tune up fights
, and you will be a huge favorite.

If you have a big contract you will be the underdog in every fight. and if you lose two you will renegotiate that contract or be cut.

ufc doesnt pay big money to give you a tune up fight

And what an incredible arse it is that she will have to bust.

I feel like this is more about publicity than winning a belt for Gina. If she wins great, but whatever

It is foolish for any fighter who has been on the daidelines for a year plus to come back and fight a top contender. If she fights rousey immediate i think its more of a pay day than an actual competition. Rousey mops her in the first. Holm and Cyborg are the only viable opponents.
