    December still has options. But they all want a new deal/more money. Conor, Stipe, Cyborg, & Max. Woodley & Nunes could be available for DEC 30th. Worse comes to worse, Whittaker may have to defend his interim vs Rockhold/Branch lol

    JJ via UD. I'm not counting out Rose though, I'm actually very excited for this one than I have been for some of Joanna's other fights.

    If Joanna beats Rose then that's 4/5 of the Top 5 (Tecia's the only one left) and 5/10 of the Top 10 (Esparza who's #7). JJ's starting to slowly clear the division out. I'm expecting whoever wins the Tecia vs. Michelle fight to challenge the champ after this one next (That is if they do Torres v. Waterson, which they should). If they don't go with Torres vs. Waterson then set Torres up with the winner of Herrig vs. Casey.

    Wouldn't be surprised if Joanna moves up to 125 soon, the 115 division is running out of contenders.

    Rose may be much better at clinching now, than she was against Karolina, after doing so much training with Valentina Shevchenko.

    Looking forward to Joanna's interactions with "Patrick" - both graduates of Team Perfect.

    I like them both as far as watching wmma should of been on 218 Detroit is gonna get shit on like Edmonton.

    Greedy pricks ... there is no need for 2 ppvs in December with one sandwiched between MSG and Year end Vegas.

    Joanna wants to be a mainstream star, not merely a regional one.

    Rose is skilled but she doesn't have the cardio to contest JJ, nowhere near it actually

    I'm calling for an upset here where styles make for a good fight and we're seeing a focused and confident Rose.
    If JJ looks past Rose, she will lose ....and at juicy odds

    Rose lives and trains at high altitude in Colorado. Her cardio won't be an issue, imo.

    It pretty much was a for gone conclusion that
    they would end up meeting do to the fact Rose
    was the #1 contender after UFC On Fox in
    April and Joanna beat Jessica Andrade in the
    month of May in Dallas.

    Waterson fight was a career turner for me.
    #statement

    She might lose but it'll be competitive

    wouldn't count Rose out. She looked like a beast In her last fight. She's also been training with Valentina for the last year and Is 25 years old..she hasn't even hit anywhere near her peak yet and Is getting better Insanely fast.

    On paper Joanna should win this but It's silly to count Rose out.

    She might surprise everyone and just win.

    she certainly has the right training partner for It, who knows Joanna quite well.

    At the very least this fight will be competitive.

    If rose loses this fight, she'll come back and beat her In the future.
