    While I think that it's highly unlikely that Tate will be able to knockout Holm, I do see a possible TKO if Tate is able to take her down.

    It's technically possible, but I don't see it happening.

    Meisha will need to work her ground game or she'll follow Rousey to claim a place on Holm's LHK reel.

    I've seen better striking while watching Bumfights, so nah, probably won't happen.
    I also think her fight IQ is...very questionable at times.

    Cupcake power has been improving. That said, even if she is capable of hurting Holm I doubt she manages to set it up. Holm's movement is very very good.

    Some people like to bullshit for bullshit's sakes. Holly is going to Wonderboy Tate's tight, hard, juicy, delicious looking ass. Tate's aggression will get her caught with something. If she's not aggressive, she'll just get picked apart from the outside.

    Ronda has a better chance of KO'ing Holly just because she has fairly heavy hands, their striking is equally terrible, Miesha pillow fists KO'ing an elite striker? Nah. She's never finished an opponent in the UFC whether it be submission or (T)KO. Miesha is getting starched into retirement.

    I'd hate her to be Champion because there's barely any threat of her finishing a fight. She makes Fitch look like Manhoef.

    Change your thread title.

    Martinez is not a part of Tate's camp.

    It's possible, just not probable. Holly has good length and great movement (fast as hell too). Holly also has the advantage of a decade's worth of experience in boxing.

    Would not be smart to engage her in a stand-up striking contest and trying to go for a KO.

    Sounds like Meisha needs a new head coach. If this is their gameplan then he's no better of a coach than Edmond is.

    Tate is a better striker than Ronda is, but not to the point where she presents any type of threat to Holly Holm. That's suicide.

    Her nickname used to be Takedown. She needs to go back to that because K-1 Cupcake is gonna get slept.
