    Well Nunes destroyed Ronda with reaching punches. I think it’s hooks that you shouldn’t throw at Ronda; straight punches seem to be more effective against her.

    Also, Nunes isn’t some elite kick-boxer either and doesn’t have great footwork either.

    Hope she calls out that new tranny fighter and be the massive heel to the lgbtquicab[4%[email protected] community.

    Yes, nothing wrong with calling out a guy who hasn't fought in four years and has stated unequivocally that he will not come back. More like, you're butthurt because you don't get to see him lose in his old age

    That shows your ignorance right there. I wouldn’t mind seeing GSP beat Usman.

    I’ve been a fan of GSP but you assume because I want to see him fight Usman that I want to see him lose. I just don’t think he would win.

    I’m not a nut goblin like you. I’m more of a fan of the match-up and don’t underestimate GSP’s comeback ability.

    This is actually a fight Ronda may have a chance in! Pena is basically a slow starting ground specialist and Ronda is a fast starting beast on the ground. Of course she been off and given birth, probably no shot at all, but Prime R3 vs Pena is a winnable fight for Ronda.
    The styles make the fight.

    Conor v Cerrone wasn't a tune up?

    He was older, past his prime, but Cowboy is no one's "tune up" fight.

    Conor was the betting Favorite (-325), but it's only in hindsight, the way the fight played out, that you could suggest that it was a "tune-up" level matchup. The very next fight Conor LOST as the Favorite against Poirier (-310), and very similar betting Odds to Cowboy.

    Talking about Prime R3 belongs to the past...

    But Edmond is flotating the idea Sherbros¡¡¡


    Fun fact: Ronda called her daughter La’akea Makalapuaokalanipõ. No shit....

    Nunes beat/split with Valentina twice, she Headkicked Holly Holm, beat Germaine twice, blasted Cyborg. Nunes is a ferocious striker with better Muay Thai then Julianna (reminder: Styles make fights). Julianna is more deliberate with her striking, if you will. Her default setting is grappling.

    If she gotten over the PTSD of consecutive ass whoopings, she'll return. I've got my doubts.

    Julianna and Nunes both throw reaching punches and Ronda is the easiest fighter to hit in the division. Also Pēna and Nunes have the same reach and both hit really hard. I could see Pena beating Ronda the same way Amanda did

    But the question is, can she handle Ronda Rousey's inner beauty?

    Except no, because Peña has already said they are doing the Nunes rematch.

    I guess a fighter isn't allowed to talk about any other possible matchups they want without being called a duck
