    Nunes finished McMann rather easily while Tate took a close decision against McMann. I also don't think Tate's fight with Eye proves much either, she still has nothing for Ronda. I would rather see Nunes get a crack at Rousey.

    Tate deserves it more but Nunes is the more dangerous opponent because of her freakish power.

    Beating Eye proves plenty though.
     
  3. I'd much rather see Nunes face Ronda next than Tate.

    More deserving? No. Tate is on a 4 fight win streak and has gone through the top fighters.

    More intriguing? Yes. Nunes vs Rousey automatically is more interesting than Rousey vs Tate 3. Novelty > 3rd time around, especially when the first two were decisive losses.

  6. Arguments could be made that Nunes is more deserving because of the fact that she is one of the few Girls in top 10 that HASNT faced Ronda yet. I think she would beat Eye as well.
     
  7. More deserving? Yes. Tate is on a 2 fight losing streak against Ronda. Truth is they don't want Ronda fighting another Brazilian next.

    We should know by now the UFC doesn't go by more deserving but by what will make them the most $$$. Hopefully nunes is next but Holm or cyborg might cause her to have to wait . Nunes vs Holm should be made next but I don't see the UFC making that fight as they wouldn't want one of them to lose.

    She isn't more deserving but most people will be more interested in her getting the shot because its new.

    I actually want her to win another even if only for herself, she looks good but I'm not sure it is right for her right now.
    I think she could take out Davis in a rematch and earn the shot that way.

    This three peat seems far to soon - I'd rather see Nunes get a shot.

    ....let's hope we don't have to sit through another season of TUF before the fight.

    I think Ronda said she would never do TUF again

    Tate probably deserves it more, but I think Nunes is the more interesting match up.

    but I don't think Nunes should be rushed into a title shot, give her a few more warm up fights, a few more challengers and give her time to improve even more.

    While that sounds good I kind of disagree. I mostly disagree as I'm not sure how long Ronda will do mma for. If you give Nunes a couple more fights, she could lose one and never get a fight with Ronda before she retires.

    Nunes should fight Alexis Davis or Holly Holm

    I think they want Holm's VS Rousey at Madison Square Garden as a part of a supercard. I believe New York breaks early 2016.

    More deserving, maybe not. More interesting, yes.

    Nunes vs. Davis would allow her to avenge a loss. If they want Holm to fight Ronda eventually a fight of Holm vs. Bethe would be good.

    Tate deserves it more, but I'd rather see Nunes. If Nunes wins one more (maybe a rematch with Alexis Davis), she deserves the shot.
