    Is it just me or is this going to be the new dream fight in WMMA? Honda vs Holmes was going to be it, but Housey & Edmund went and fracked that up so now...

    Honestly I think Holmes would smash Nooonez and would look damn good doing it. Yes Holmes lost to Valentina via decision whom Nunes beat via decision also but she has the ability to rebound.

    John Holmes was huge. Big reach. Good ground and pound.

    Holm is moving up a division. Nunes vs Holm is not going to happen in the near future.

    If she is moving up she can easily move back down. No Biggie.

    I'm thinking Nunes wants no part of Holmes and his parts.

    Nunes can win if she closes the distance and gets the clinch.

    Holmes could take her out with kicks, not just punches.

    Being a boxer Holmes has it in her to go the distance not just crash in 48 secs. It's not a coincidence so many of her fights last 5 rounds.

    There's about 6 female FW's on the planet, and one of them is gonna be out for a while. Holm will be back down to BW soon enough id say

    Most logical would be Pennington or Penna maybe.

    I really dont think so. Holly will use her movement to make Nunes miss and gas.

    Yeah, Holly comes from Boxing. An experience grappler and/or Judoka theoratically would be a tougher match up for her; against another striker she has the advantage. Ofcourse, Noooones has her BJJ, but then Holly has her reach advantage, stamina, footwork, and also importantly her kicks.
