    Nunes is of course extremely dangerous, shes aggressive, good bjj, and goes for the kill, not to mention has good power for 135, but I think Ronda will win (dont want her to though because ronda will probably do some dramatic shit after the fight and the hype train will be back on).

    I see Ronda winning by 3 possibly ways:
    1. Nunes comes out aggressive, makes a mistake or over commits and Ronda takes her down and subs her
    2. Or possibly lands a power shot if nunes gets careless(unlikely, but still possible since ronda has power)
    3. Ronda weathers the early storm and comes back to finish nunes by sub like the 2nd or 3rd (nunes notoriously starts fast and fades).

    The way Nunes wins:
    1. Come out aggressive (but don't get sloppy) and pick Ronda apart like holm did and wait for the finish.

    I think Ronda is extremely dangerous though and just because i dislike her doesn't mean I dont think she can win this.

    I think you'd be surprised.

    It can go either way. I expect Ronda to win.

    I'm 50/50 on this one. Rooting for Nunes but could definitely see Ronda winning.

    My reputation as the Ronda white knight is important to me.

    Nunes ktfo Honda round 1.

    Honda tries a couple of hip-tosses, fails, folds mentally, gets lit up like a Christmas tree, turns into a panic judoka, Nunes gets on top and pounds her into retirement.

    No idea.

    If Ronda is really as weak as well all seem to believe, I think Nunes breaks her with striking and gets an early finish.

    If Ronda is back to her best form, she'll probably win by armbar.

    The reality is that she's probably somewhere in between. I honestly want her to lose, but wishing it to happen doesn't mean it will.

    I think you were right when you said she pops Nunes and swarms for the finish, likely a sub. I think Nunes thinks this is gonna be easier than she should. I think she will be too aggressive and get clipped and be finished.

    My second scenario, which could be thought of as more likely, would be that they clinch up standing and rousey gets her down, and eventually subs her.

    Maybe I'm missing something about Nunes, but aside from her fight against Tate, I've never been overly impressed with what I've seen. I don't even like Rousey, but I can't see how she loses this. I guess the only question is the mental side, but I don't think it will be a factor when she's in the cage.

    I really think Nunes tko early round one.

    Ronda is shook and this is the 2nd actual striker she's faced. and this isn't a point fighter like Holly.

    Nunes is clearly dangerous but your right, I haven't been ultra impressed.
    She faded against Alexis Davis, Shevchenko, Cat Zingano. Shes dangerous early but Ronda can catch her if she gets sloppy or ronda can try and weather the storm (Nunes has paid the price for being sloppy before and for gassing)

    Has ronda ever faced a black belt or good jits player othe3 than davis? Davis' lack of striking made her jits irrelevant... i wanna see how rinda does from her back... she is always looking goodmon ground because her throws put her in dominant positions that she has drilled the finish for over and over.. imagine amanda winning by key lock or kimura from top. I would love that

    I honestly think Ronda will close the distance, not try and stand with her at all and take her down and control the match.

    We over at the Nine 2 Fivers did another fight picks video for the main event fights. Check it out here:
