    So just food for thought. In my mind I have always seen Rousey as the WMMA version of Mark Coleman. Completely dominant with a single skill set over fighters who just weren't complete. Coleman ran through every opponent he faced en route to the first UFC HW title.

    When Maurice Smith beat him by taking advantage of a fighter who had never been deep in a fight or had his one skill set neutralized it was a HUGE upset that threatened to change the game and define an era.

    Today fans remember Coleman but Smith is largely forgotten as he never cemented his place in the sport with the same dominance Coleman did.

    So I ask, if Holm loses to Tate, does she become the proverbial Smith to Ronda's Coleman? Opinions?

    Both were classic grappler vs striker match-ups where the grappler lost.. Thats really the only similarity I see..

    You may be onto something if Ronda goes on to win some kind of GP in a new promotion...

    I was hoping your thread was about Holm joining Maurice Smith for kickboxing lessons.
