    Just another case of Dana blatantly stating something then going back on his word, not that it's anything to be surprised about. Who do you think Tate will get next, I'm thinking a Zingano rematch or Amanda Nunes.

    Miesha might be pissed. I doubt many other people are.

    It seems the UFC/Dana recently has just been throwing out match ups and gauging the reaction from the fans

    I actually like it if that is what they are doing, just really hoping for Werdum vs Cain to be pulled

    Yes, but now they can do Meisha vs Davis and Nunes vs Eye/Pena winner

    Well, she looks like she just smelled some piss.

    That said, she had earned the shot, but I guess they may as well get Holm in there while she's still undefeated. And then she might be a live contender again if she can win a few in the aftermath of getting armbarred in 30 seconds.

    They should give Tate something winnable to tide her over though, not a world beater. No sense ending her win streak and losing her as a contender.

    She probably got Cyborg, so she's probably not pissed.

    >huge if true

    Agreed. People put pressure on Dana for matchmaking before the fvcking decision of a fight is even officially announced. What do people expect. In this case, like others, they probably used social media to gauge the level of excitement about a trilogy bout, and saw it wasn't worth it.

    Who the hell wants to see Meisha get armbarred...a-fvcking-gain? I think it would be more interesting to see if Holly Holm can keep distance for 5 rounds and jab Rousey in the nose. Even winning a boring fight like that would be impressive in its execution, though I doubt that's going to happen. It is, at least, intriguing.

    Also, F women's mma, anyways.

    Strange. Announce a fight and declare a number one contender and change up last-minute.

    Makes sense....Ronda just beat a can so give her another can, Meisha just had a tough fight against a contender so give her Cyborg....

    Wait a sec. Isn't the main complaint that Rousey has been fighting cans? As in cleared out the division of cans?

    If that's the case, then isn't Miesha having "tough fights" against cans as well? Or are they only cans against Rousey and tough when fighting Miesha?

    If Rousey is beating cans, then wouldn't Miesha's beating cans gives her no more claim to a title shot than Holm.

    Just asking...

    Best way to get a title shot is to only win lackluster decisions and not be an actual threat. Otherwise Ronda will duck you..

    Holm is getting thrown and armbarred in the first round.

    I just hope they change their mind on Cain rematch since they are in the "ungiving" mood.

    I too dont care for this match up. Holly hasn't looked good in her fights and she doesnt look good.

    Thats right.
