    MMA math doesn't work, but Nunes literally beat everyone Holms has ever lost to in mma

    Great post. I wouldn't be surprised if Nunes gets a bit too aggressive and walks into a high kick from Holly. Nunes does get a bit wild from time to time, but she does have great accuracy and power in her shots. Should be an interesting fight. If Holly can use her range effectively, I see her taking a decision win.

    Holm has never been beatdown or outclassed in a fight. She has great technique and I could see her simply outboxing Nunes and imposing her game.

    Whilst I can see this happening... I don't think it will happen.

    It's hilarious the way the UFC manipulates their rankings. Holly mysteriously moved up and Randamie down two spots this week, plus other fuckery going on.

    Nope, just like any other in your face fight, Holly will loose the decision.

    You will see ... ISH ISH Holly again :(

    I like Holly. She is the better technical boxer/kickboxer. But Amanda isn't far behind her technique and has both faster hands and way more power. Holly would have to fight a perfect fight (ie not take any big power shots) to win this one. She will wear it on her face at the end.

    Holm winning definitely could happen. Holm winning by sub is incredibly unlikely given she's never subbed anybody in her career.

    Nope. It’s gonna be the same ol same ol. UFC will air the Ronda KO 55 times and constantly tell you how decorated holly is. They’ll bring up her successful boxing career another hundred times to convince you too but in all reality it’ll be similar to the GDR fight. Holly will move around and come in with the “ ISH ISH ISH “ Malignaggi like shots that miss and she’ll end with a light leg kick. She’ll land maybe a nice shot here and there but Amanda will land a significant strike or two that looks better and has more impact which’ll just negate whatever holly just did

    Holly can maybe make it interesting if she uses more of that wrestling against the cage. Not to necessarily get Amanda down but to keep her locked up so she has less chances of landing that impactful strike that’ll bank her a round since holly most likely won’t land anything crazy. Amanda by boring decision but I’m still excited for the fight and Holly’s booty brah

    I'd rather hear about her tangibles, if you know what I'm saying. Huh - huh?
    [<cena1}


    She did hang with Cyborg, but obviously Cyborg got wrekt hard by Nunes's speed. Not sure if Holly's faced that kind of challenge before. Because I barely watch WMMA. I do like Holly, though, relative to the others. Hopefully her defense serves her well. I view her as facing maybe her biggest challenge and assume she probably won't win.

    Anyway, I can't really comment on WMMA

    Holly beat the fuck out of Ronda for 9 straight minutes. So with this sentence you lose all credibility, and you can’t be taken seriously. Grow up son. Have a nice day.

    Holly's strong. She looked excellent in the clinch versus Cyborg. Her footwork / counter striking are difficult for opponents to read. She can lull them to complacency then boom! with the head kick.

    Nunes won't give her much distance. She'll pressure her, make her uncomfortable. It may take some time for Nunes to get the rhythm. But she'll figure it out. Nunes via RNC.

    Holly tends to get hit quite a bit and starts slow. Against Honda, Holly was ultra sharp though.

    What put Honda down?
    Wasn’t Honda being THE aggressor until the HK?
    Did you watch the fight?

    “Getting beat the fuck down “is something like what Nunes did to her.
    Did you watch the fight??

    Holm was playing the counter game playing safe at distance,avoiding being tossed down, she even got tossed once.

    DID YOU WATCH THE FIGHT??

    Go whiteknight somewhere else,Holly doesn’t need it.

    I’ve got a weird feeling Nunes is gonna have a difficult weight cut which will affect her in the fight causing holly to capitalise in a TKO..
