I like that fight. Obviously, Rousey will be the favorite, as usual, but Nunes is a good opponent. She has power in her hands and is aggressive. She is well versed in judo and BJJ, and even if she can't match Rousey's judo, she is probably more well equipped to deal with it than most others in the division. She may be competent enough on the ground to defend Ronda's sub attempts a little better than most others. If her defensive grappling and offensive striking are good enough, she could make for a tough opponent.

If she fights and beats Kaufman, or maybe the Duke/Correira winner plus Someone else. Maybe Andrade?

Aaaaaand now it's time for me to shamelessly self-promote my band, Audio Impulse.

Yeah the chick who got decisioned by D'Alelio and TKOd by Davis is right now arguably her toughest test.

Rousey nuthuggers are post-by-post the dumbest fanbase in Sherdog.

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.


Three suns and one star watch over me.

May be her injury will heal before Holm and White could come to terms.

I survived TPF 10 - "Let the streams fail".

Rousey would kill her.

We're on an express elevator to hell, going down
