    Nunes is a legit champ or a tomato can with luck (like Eddie Alvarez).?

    Tell me now, not after Ronda win in the first round.

    I'm no hater but she held a title in the UFC so to me that makes her or anyone to ever hold a title in the UFC legit. Some title holders are obviously more legit than others but they are all legit.

    Yes Eddie Alvarez was on the right side of decisions against really fantastic fighter but that doesnt mean he is a tomato. Dispatching RDA like he did ensures he goes down as one of the all time great LWs. So TS, stfu.

    Nunes has 0 title defenses and the person she beat just retired.

    For the record, I was saying back in the strikeforce days, before Ronda even dropped to 135, that Amanda Nunes was the most interesting fight for her. Moreso even that Cyborg who remains a volume TKO artist without the ability deliver real KO blows. So I will maintain that Nunes is one of the most legit opponents with the most problematic skill sets Ronda has ever faced. Even moreso than Holly who, in retrospect, appears more a function of Ronda burnout than her own worth.

    nunes has legit talent, her punches have speed and power, the best at 135

    for me this fight will end quick one way or another via arm bar or ko

    anything else and i will be surprised

    Nunes is ok. Wmma still has a long way to go. I'd say she semi legit.

    It would be Ronda's biggest win, imo, even over Miesha and Cat. Nunes is one of the very best.

    nick diaz said eddie alvarez doesn't train like a champ.
    if he trained like he did in RDA for every fight, than he would be relevant.
    i dont think it is fair to say he will go down as one of the all time greats just because of one win. (it should also be mentioned that RDA got knocked out cold right literally before the Alvarez fight when he was warming up)

    Were on earth did you get this bullshit from.

    First, how did Nick even know how Eddie trained like?
    Secondly, how did you know he trained harder for RDA than for Conor?
    Thirdly, Alvarez has fought in so many different organisations and became champ in most of em. He for sure will go down as one of the great LWs. Miss me with this shit.

    Nunes is a legit champion. She beat the legit champion. Of course there is more credibility in being able to defend a title. If she loses to Ronda it just means she wasn't good enough on that day. I've always thought Ronda was better than Amanda but also believed Amanda had the skills to be a champion. Maybe after Ronda retires she could work her way back up the ladder and be a champion again.

    Nunes is a legit fighter, but that's not really important or interesting, it's just a cheap soundbite.

    The important part is HOW Nunes fights and how Ronda wins if she beats her. If Nunes pulls a Cat flying knee and gets taken right down and submitted it really doesn't say anything beyond the fact that Amanda can't deal with pressure and went full retard. If Nunes fights her usual patient but aggressive way and Ronda can overcome that and find a way to win then we can say that yes, Ronda is indeed a special fighter who deserves her rep.

    Anybody willing to go and get there faces punched and necks choked for my amusement is legit enough. Rousey is a superstar and Nunes won the title in impressive fashion against a tough opponent, anybody who says otherwise is a fuggin moron of epic proportion....
