    "Cat Zingano is an extremely unique fighter, not only is she undefeated, but she's shown an amazing ability to deal with a lot of adversity. There's been a lot of times in her fights where she's been down but she's never been out. There's been times when she's close to losing, but there's never been a time when she didn't come back. That makes her an extremely dangerous opponent. I have to entirely put her away to the very end. She's the most risky opponent I've ever had. I'm keeping an eye on Bethe Correia. She's undefeated right now. And Holly Holm, I'm looking forward to her debut. I wouldn't be surprised to see Jessica Eye do well this year too. So all three - I'm very interested to see how year plays out for them."

    Zingano always starts slowly and Rousey always starts fast. It's like a lock and a key, they just match each other(in a bad way for Zingano) .

    I have yet to hear Ronda say how easy a fight will be for her. It's her job to claim each contender is worthy.

    Wow Ronda Rousey actually is being nice and gracious about her opponents. If she had said this is a carnival sideshow fight and I'm just gonna tie her up in my hands like a child playing with a slinky and I'm gonna damage her limbs without any real effort, well, that would have just been candor on her part.

    Fortunately, when you finish a fight, that really doesn't amount to much. See also Sonnen vs Silva 1, Carter vs Serra, Couture vs Rodriguez

    Cat probably won't even last a minute, she's a horrible starter.

    How many fights did she lose?

    Rounds don't mean that much in comparison.

    If Ronda put away Cat in the first round, she could go on and beat Bethe and Holly in the same night. Not hyperbole. Cat might hurt her, cut her, give her some trouble, but Ronda would destroy Correia and Holm in under two minutes. That`s how dominant she is: she could wipe out all of her contenders in a single evening. But, I like how Ronda is being humble here and giving credit to each potential opponent (before she terminates them). :icon_chee

    I wonder if she would be as nice if Tate III was being discussed? :p

    I think a lot of here mean image came from her feud with Tate.

    Can;t really argue that here. We've seen nothing from Holm that shows she's even remotely capable of stopping Rousey from bringing it to the ground. And Bethe, like most WMMA fighters unfortunately, really is a lower level athlete as well.

    Anyone looking at this objectively can see that Ronda could finish Cat, Bethe and Holly all in one night with a combined time of under 5 minutes. It is totally reasonable to predict that and so you didn't even need to bolden the same night part and specify that it is not hyperbole. By now it's common knowledge.

    Ronda makes a good but worrisome point. Cat has yet to give up in a fight.

    I firmly believe Ronda will win and it seems most people would agree. However, I also like Cat and the fact that she hasn't given up in a fight worries me that she won't tap.

    I think we all know what Ronda does when somebody doesn't tap.

    None of Rowsey's opponents have been close to her skill level so far, and Zigano barely got by Mischa Taint

    Ronda's really only ever talked crap about Meisha, and Meisha is probably even more guilty than Ronda for stirring up crap.

    Meisha's already talking crap about the female TUF fighters.

    Been on dat Zingano hypetrain since the beginning. With that said, I'll root for Cat but I wouldn't even bet vCash on her winning this fight.
