    Is Megan Anderson the shadow Holly Holm going into the Nunes fight?
    Holly Holm was a huge underdog against Rousey and was expected to lose that fight.
    But something unexpected happened.........

    History is repeating itself again, and now Megan Anderson is where Holly Holm used to be.

    Are we gonna expect the unexpected once again?

    It's way more likely that Nunes will do what Holly did to Megan rather than what Holly did to Ronda.

    No, because unlike Ronda, Nunes is not a product of hype.

    Megan has a chance, if she doesn't clip her toenails.

    Lmao this.

    Megan sucks. She's slow as heck, only kod that last girl because she basically lunged right into the punch.

    Amanda is better everywhere. Ground, wrestling, stamina, speed, power, boxing.

    Anderson has luck, and sharp toenails, on her side.

    Only getting this TS because it's an empty division.

    Holm had the TDD to kept Ronda at bay, so she could frustrate and KO her with her vastly superior striking. Meanwhile, Megan has zero TDD, a very limited ground game and doesn't even have a striking advantage outside of her longer reach.

    That was before my time, but wasn’t Holly undefeated in mma when that fight happened? Plus she was an ex world champion pro boxer that used that experience to beat someone that was not very good on the feet.

    I don’t see any parallels except that both Holly and Megan were huge underdogs.
