If Miesha beats Ronda would you consider it an upset?

    Personally I don't think so because she's been giving up her back...

    The only way to beat Ronda is to knock her out or submit her. She is the most protected product in the UFC.

    Meisha wont beat Ronda, Ronda might lose in social-interactions but not in the cage

    yes for sure,considering meisha lost her title then nearly got knocked out by kedzie,then got stopped by kat,she is lucky not to be on a 3 fight losing streak going into a title fight.

    Of course it is, it's not like Miesha is an amazing fighter.

    Miesha understands quite well how to plan, let's see if she can execute against Rousey. If she can avoid an armbar it could be all hers for the taking.

    Yeah...I mean seeing as how Ronda basically broke her arm twice in one fight, hasn't lost, and Miesha is coming off a KO loss...I'd say it would be an upset..wtf is this thread?

    Upset of the year considering the fact that Ronda is -1100.

    That's a bit premature of a statement, considering she's had one fight in an entirely new division, no?

    I guess it's "giving up your back for 20 seconds" vs "breaking your opponents arm twice in the first round".

    Of course it would be an upset. Ronda will be a big favourite on the betting lines I think. 2-3 to 1. That said, I think Meisha has a good chance in the rematch, but I'd still favour the champ, 60/40.

    Of course, and I'm sure the betting lines confirm. That being said, I might put money on Tate just for fun and the big payoff if I win.

    You must be trolling. Ronda is way, WAY bigger of a favorite than that.

    Yeah and there are no legitimate threats in the division lol Ronda may not be likable but how can people already be saying she's protected when there are very little opponents to test her? When Carmouche was announced, people said that they were protecting her from a rematch with Tate and what do we have here?

    Yes it would be. I certainly wouldn't be upset about it though.

    Oh god,break out the tinfoil. This shit has been proven time and time again, the UFC has little to no control over the judges. Miesha winning only sets up an even bigger rubbermatch. This reminds me of the stupidity that ensued after the Anderson knockout.
