    It wouldn't take much.

    I know that Amanda is a sweetheart and has been very respectful so far but as I've said before: this is a 50/50 fight. Getting a mental edge could make a difference here.

    Ronda has spent months trying to move past what Holly did to her. If Nunes just (very gently) tips her over the edge, Ronda might fall into that bad, bad place again...

  2. The UFC should force Nunes to hide behind a pillow during the staredown. Give her a bonus if you have to.

    I'd bring a purple pillow and offer it to her.

    Yes. She should give Ronda a purple pillow.

    Absolutely. Ronda seems on the verge of mental collapse.

    Nunes shold bring an apple and hand it to her. Tell her it's her "last chance to eat one for a while."

    Ronda is such a psycho. The innocent, childlike expression on her face after Holly temporarily beat the crazy out of her always makes me laugh.

    I think Ronda would lose her mind if Nunes did that. Maybe even throw a pillow at Ronda to make her even more upset.

    Ronda would go berserker and fight with emotions on Friday which is what Nunes wants.

    But I think Nunes is a good respectful girl, she will keep it classy as long as Ronda does it too. Can't remember Nunes doing anything disrespectful inside or outside of the cage.

    Holly was the same. The only reason they scuffled was because Ronda charged at her, huffing and puffing, which a real tough chick like Holly would not stand for.

    But Ronda will try to protect her own feelings this time and keep her distance. I am sure of it. Amanda would have to be the one to cross the line.. just a little bit... *sigh* I really do wish she would channel a little bit of the ole Cobra Kai here.

    If she wanted to do anything possible to ensure victory...Amanda should do the pillow thing. Although it would be very classless, most fans in the arena would support her and I think the scene would give Amanda the edge. You would literally have the whole arena laughing at your opponent in unison.

    It would be classless and it would be funny to watch people give Amanda a pass for doing it.

    That's what gets me, you see here Rousey getting all bent out of shape at the weigh ins against Holm (who I can't remember being disrespectful to Rousey prior to that)

    But here we got Correira screaming in her face, but she does nothing . . .

    If Amanda wants to gain fans. She will play it classy. If she doesn't give a fuck about popularity, or making more money. Then go full douche. I don't really give a fuck.

    BTW: It took me a good 5 minutes to dig up that ATG faceoff in gif form, which I find very odd considering that I'm a GoogleSearch Platinum Belt. Did Dana have this gif suppressed? hmm...
     
  15. Damn, that's a good idea too. We should do a poll...

    A. Nunes hands Rousey a purple pillow.

    B. Nunes mocks Rousey by burying her face in a purple pillow at the staredown.

    She should bring a purple pillow with a massive bumper sticker of Holly on it and lob it at Ronda's face.

    Yes Amanda should really try to piss Ronda off like the last opponent who tried doing that.
