    UFC dropped the ball on this.
    Holly was so hot after beating RR.
    Media loved her.
    Tate is also very media friendly.
    UFC had two people that have shown a willingness to promote and did nothing outside of that initial press conference.

    The UFC couldn't care less about Wmma without ronda at the helm. They haven't promoted holly 1/10 of what they promoted ronda.

    I agree but at the same time all eyes are on McGregor

    They let go of that division IMO. They showed repeated clips of Ronda getting put on the canvas during the card last Saturday and the title fight is playing second fiddle to a non-title fight in a weight class that neither fighters are in.

    Bro the UFC is using this as a tune-up fight so Holly can have a fight before UFC 200

    Promotion for the entire event has been lacklustre, but I am really surprised that they haven't pushed Holly more given that she did beat their biggest draw. They should have had her on some big talk show this week and Conor on the other one (I believe he's doing Conan)

    I agree, but then again, how do you promote Holly when you can be promoting Conor.

    Given that Conor has been in Ireland for most of his training camp, she seemed like an obvious person to do some of the promotion whilst he was over there in the last couple of weeks, and then have him do his thing in the last week.

    There's nothing to promote, honestly, a casual can do a quick google search.

    can give you all the MMA Casual math you'll need.

    (Tate lost to Ronda x2) + (Holly beat Ronda) =
    Holly wins

    Hell, i've gone through the ringer destroying Ronda nutthuggers with 193 pics, but even I would admit, UFC should save their marketing dollars $$$ and just promo
    Four leaf clover vs. Canabis leaf

    or even, who has the best WaG?
    [​IMG] vs.[​IMG]

    I mean you would really get more mileage out of that, than trying to Promo Holly v. Tate.

    Hopefully Tate can put up some kind of fight, maybe Holly can get a FoTN bonus.

    Less competition for when either of their men inevitably fumbles IMO.

    It does not need to be either/or.

    That took a day and has nothing to do with UFC's promotional department.
    You think it is a one man office?

    I noticed that, and I dont get it either??

    Ronda is neither more skilled, or more attractive.

    Holly is a good American girl, the preacher's daughter, etc...

    Seems like UFC is really only interested to push the disrespectful and crass.
