    Both the Cyborg and Holm fights would've done mid-1,000,000 PPV buys.

    Rousey-Nunes probably does 800,000. Nobody knows who Nunes is, and Rousey's media firewall disadvantaged this card. But the marquee value of the Cyborg and Holm fights would've carried the event on their own.

    Nunes has looked phenomenal, but suffers from "the Brazilian problem": she'll never be a star. Wasting a rare Rousey fight on Nunes is something the UFC will regret.

    The UFC did not goof. Rousey wanted nothing to do with either one of those fights.

  6. Cyborg would have murdered her and they knew it from the moment they handed Ronda the belt before she even fought in the UFC. Cyborg would have beaten rousey faster than she beat Gina

    Cyborg is also the Josh Barnett of women's doping.
