    Do you think she will just try and box with Holm to prove her striking in this fight? We all know that she could just grapple Holm to a quick sub. Is this some sort of test of her hands? I mean, seriously, we all know this fight just doesn't make sense.

    We'll get confirmation in the rematch.

    of course this fight doesn't make sense, but unless Cyborg stops preventing this fight from happening, this is the best we'll get. Or we could have her beat Tate third time

    Cyborg needs to stop ducking Ronda and cut to 135.

    The world wants to see a championship fight.

    it depends. Idk how holm's striking defense is. She has a pretty high output but im not sure how well her defense is if ronda pushes the pace and starts backing her down, hopefully she can handle pressure. I just wan't to see an interesting fight, but if ronda clinches its probably over.

    Love the name man. Just started Skyrim 2 weeks ago for the first time. :cool:


    Actually Holm could chip away, keeping distance from Rousey. Jack Slack wrote an interesting article "Killing The Queen."

    Connor Ruebusch is terrific. If you don't read his Bloody Elbow articles you should.

    No. She will go back to going for an armbar.

    It would be stupid of her not to.

    She is massively overrated. All this bullshit about world championship titles in boxing. She only had 3 fights outside of New Mexico in her entire boxing career, and she failed to win 2 of those.

    Another ease win for Honda is what this is. Anyone who believed Holm has a chance is out of their mind.
