    I really really like Holly so Wholesome and Sweet. Heart wants her to win but head says Ronda finishes things 2 minutes into the second.

    I really wanted to see Holly Step up in comp before she got her shot... But and the + Side she has not shown a whole lot in her last fights so there may be a couple suprises for RRR
    well at least I hope there are. More Hyped for the Joanna V Claudia fight tbh

    Holly is so much nicer than Bethe, who needs another good humbling. I'm rooting for her in this one.

    January 2 is so far away, I feel like Holm will get injured and Miesha will step in.

    Do you think mma's version of Tonya Harding/Nancy Kerrigan could happen? Now that would be some shit.

    I hope not. Otherwise Miesha may claim that she did not have time to prepare for the fight properly, thus making way for Ronda x Miesha IV.

    Holly seems very Scientific in her Approach and does not seem to over do it. She is also very Durable (on a side note I feel like Women Fighters in general seem to train alot smarter then men. Anyone else notice that? )

    What else is Holly supposed to say. The UFC pressured the fight with money but she is not ready. Ronda dick riders are rejoicing.

    Huh?

    "Excited"? "Happy"?

    She didn't say she wasn't ready & the UFC forced her to accept the biggest fight of her career?

    Sherdog told me this was the case, so she's obviously a liar.

    Edit: ...like clockwork, Diggem joins to set us all straight.

    Holm should have had at least one more fight against a grappler like McMahon before she fought Rousey. Like Justin Trudeau, Holm is just not ready.

    McMann's on a 2-fight losing skid, but beating her would prove Holm is ready for a grappler (To some degree), though it wouldn't look good for her to get a title shot from that win.

    Being 3-0 in the UFC would still look better than being 2-0 against two fighters who aren't known for their grappling. Beating a 0-2 McMann still looks better than the embarrassing performance Holm put on in her last fight against a 38 year old gym teacher.

    I really like the matchup, but it would have been nice to see how Holm does against a really good grappler before getting the shot. Regardless, I think this will be the most interesting fight Ronda has had thus far, unless she manages to get a hold of Holm early and do her thing.

    I like what you did there. (great anti-Trudeau slogan put out there by the Conservatives)

    The anti-Trudeau ads really are great. Trudeau does have great hair though.

    Actually, Renau is BJJ Brown Belt, known for her grappling.

    Holm should be training nothing but takedown defense and keeping the fight at a distance.
