    Shes not booking any acting gigz. Shes going up against the best in the division. Nunes retired Miesha Tate basiically. Ronda had to have considered what it would be like to lose to Nunes

    If she loses she ain't getting any more acting gigs, hopes she realizes that.

    The only thing that can knock out Ronda is that shoulder of hers throwing the left. I think Ronda goes back to basics and gets a quick sub.

    While I do not know Ronda personally, it seems the media is mixed but paints her to be a bitch or a queen. She is tough, got kicked to fuck but can easily win quick, then again she can lose quick.

    Quick sub.

    lol No. She wants to get redemption and prove to everyone that they done forgot exactly who she was - the baddest female in MMA.

    Obviously she wants to get paid - that's how a business and our society works, you get paid for what you do - but the money isn't the only or even the main focus.

    I disagree that Nunes in the best in the Division, she has the best current streak in WBW but I still think she loses to Holm, Zingano, and Pena.

    Amanda better be working on her submission defense... Worth noting that Amanda tapped to an armbar eary in her career...

    Seeing how she avoided all media and how she reacted to her loss to Holly, I think that this fight is for closure.

    Win or lose, I think that she is done after this one.

    If she wanted to have one last big paycheck she would probably do all the media and not just basically step into the cage and fight.

    She needs to rehab her public image if she wants work in Hollywood. She can't act, so she has to be "UFC Champ and Baddest Woman on the Planet Ronda Rousey".

    Right now she's a figure of scorn and ridicule and very hard to market.

    Ronda made alot of money. I've never heard, or read that she blows money foolishly. As far as I know she has... No expensive toys. No big houses. No bad investments. No gambling problem.

    So I believe she should still have many millions. And isn't fighting because she " needs " the money. If money was the main motivation... I would have expected her to promo the fuck out of this fight.

    I have no idea how much of a drop in ppv will occur, because she did almost no promotion at all. But she might have thrown away millions by not selling this fight.

    So, it just doesn't make sense.
