Do we all agree that if Ronda beats Nunes she'll just be another paper champ like Aldo and Cormier?

    Seriously, how am I supposed to take this sport seriously? We might have a third paper champ on our hands come Friday night. Ronda will never be a true champ until she beats Holly Holm. This goes for Aldo beating Conner and Cormier beating Jones.

    Three wasted divisions. Might as well call it the Ultimate Paper Championship.

    Not her fault Holly couldn't hold onto the belt. She's still beating the official champion, so it's all good. More specifically, she's beating the woman who beat the woman who beat the woman who beat her, so she's still unofficially beating Holm. :)

    People don't understand how lineage works, there is no lineage to Aldos and DCs titles and they both lost to the previous champions hence them being paper champs.

    no fool she would be the actual champ. if she wins, she would have beat one that beat the one that beat the one that beat her, thus making her more than a paper champion, she would be a lineal champion of herself pretty much.

    But she'd be beating the champion. How is this comparable to Aldo or Cormier? If anything it's comparable to Conor McGregor since she was gifted a title shot. It's not perfect, but it's a step above Aldo and Cormier who are complete jokes as champions.

    She'd be the lineal and undisputed champ; as well as the undisputed female GOAT.

    And I can't stand her, for more legitimate reasons than most of you sad haters.

    if they get the belt because someone else has to give it up, then they are technically a paper champ. i didn't think it was that hard to understand.

    GTFO!! Ronda was a dominant champ that actually defended and kept the belt 6x. Unlike the poster of Mcg on your bedroom wall, who never defended once and was gifted title shots and favorable matches.

    Crap. If she wins she's the champion. I hope she doesn't though, the prima donna behaviour is annoying.
