    I haven't looked at this fight much, but I'm a fan of Ronda and the UFC's wmma in general so far. It's provided some pretty entertaining fights.

    Tate obviously gave Ronda her best fight so far, then McMann was taken care of with relative ease. Zingano will obviously be a stiff test eventually, based on her win over Tate.

    What is the deal with Alexis Davis? Does she have any real shot in this fight?

    Davis would beat Mayweather in a street fight

    Nope, but there isn't anyone else to fight Ronda.

    Her grappling seems super legit which could certainly give Ronda fits.

    I feel confident she will lose soundly. she might manage to make it to the 2nd or 3rd though

    Alexis Davis is a great all-around fighter. Unfortunately, she stands no chance in taking this one. The only ones with a legit shots are superior strikers (Cyborg, Carano, Holm). Davis is gritty, but that's not enough in this one.

    Carano has exactly a 0% chance of beating Rousey. Davis would own Carano if they ever fought

    Carano was a former Muay Thai Champion. If she can keep it on the feet, she would give Rousey trouble. My point is that styles make fights. A superior striker is the only type of person that will take out Rousey, not an overall balanced MMA fighter.

    Ronda is def 15lbs bigger than her.

    Maybe we can see a RNC victory for Davis.

    I think she has more of a chance than you guys giving her, everyone in the divisioon been training for Ronda for a couple years now and most have high level coaches and gyms now.

    I dont have any evidence to back this up but eventually these girls got to catch up to Ronda.

    Ronda may not be 100% focused also, she is doing a lot of hollywood shyt these days.

    Yes I believe she is, the one thing anyone who has to fight rousey needs to do is keep the distance at all cost. Carano I believe poses a major threat. The thing is with brand new dominating champ in awhole new division WMMA in the UFC Is they lack quality opponents . I think they should of held a tournament once the division filled up a bit but im not involved with financial decisions for the UFC. That said Rousey wont be champ for long and will be remembered like a gracie Maybe? If the UFC has anything to do with it she might. That said I think theres great prospect for WMMA in the UFC.

    Ronda could get triangle choked. That's her only chance, to me.

    She's okay, but she will be a big underdog to Ronda.

    Easily Ronda's toughest fight. She will present many problems for Rousey. Listen to those who know (not the majority of Sherdog)

    This.

    world class judo at 135 pounds is far more effective than at 170, 185 or 260 pounds.

    LMAO, this. Any female MMA fighter would beat the best boxer in the world in a no rules street fight.
