If Nunes beats Ronda in a impressive fashion, will she also become a huge star like Holly Holm?

    Remember how Holly Holm was a around the world doing interviews on talk shows, meeting celebrities and went from a star overnight? Can the same thing happen for Nunes?

    Nunes will get only 10 minutes compared to Holly's 15 min.

    holm's big thing was her nice chick, preachers daughter, no sht talk, country home goodness appeal - nunes, not so much - not sure why anyone would get behind her - i think brazilians really have to stand out in order to get any following in an american / english-speaking based promotion - dont see nunes being that person

    No. First she's not American. Second she's a lesbian, not gonna go over as well as "the Preachers Daughter" among the general populace here in the USA.

    Biggest star potential on this card is Kobe Garbryant. The cameras will be manipulated to make him look like bane, just you watch.

  13. Holly Holm gave Ronda her first loss and did it at the height of her fame with a spectacular head kick. If Nunes wins she'll get scraps in comparison.

    Possibly...

    But she talks too much shit to be loved like Holly.

    And her record does not justify her shit talk. Ronda could talk massive shit. She was undefeated. The only champion in UFC history. And she won all of her fights by finish... All but 1 of her wins came in the very first round. IIRC, in a 3 fight span. Ronda's fights lasted an average of 30 seconds.

    I don't think Nunes has the natural appeal Holly did. But with some good PR advice. She could be a star.

    Nope there isn't the same hype around Ronda like there was before, and it's not going to transfer to a Brazilian that isn't getting the push from the UFC.

    A gay latin chick that have average looks and have a white american GF but doesn't speak good english.

    Can't see how she can became a huge success with anything outside the lefties SJWs crowd.
