    A matchup with one of the TUF contestants from this season would be a good matchup for Holm's UFC debut

    Does anyone else think she could win gold?

    Also, which women from TUF do you think will make it to the UFC?

    Isn't Holm a 145er?

    If they ever do want to make that weightclass her vs. Cyborg would be a good first title fight.

    I made a thread earlier about it, but I was wrong. Her striking is by far the best in WMMA.

    Ha my reason for starting this thread.

    I think her next fight will be in the UFC for sure, the Legacy FC presidents said he wouldn't stand in the way of a UFC offer, and surely the UFC has taken notice by now.

    That girl is a beast standing. The funny thing is she is doing most of her damage with her legs and feet. I still want to see how she does on the ground but wouldn't mind seeing her in the UFC.

    If Bellator are smart they'd build up a fight between Cyborg and Holm. Holm is technically one of the best strikers in mma hands down. Better than Cyborg, although Cyborg is stronger and more aggressive. Makes for an interesting match up.

    If WMMA generates more popularity outside the 135 div, maybe the UFC will get there shit together and include the extra weight division in there roster.

    I think Vitor flopped to get it to the ground more than having it really drop him

    Except Holm is a 135er.

    and Bellator dropped their women's divisions, Cyborg is in Invicta

    If Jessica Rakoczy doesn't make the finals she would be a fun fight for Holly.

    Holm vs Rousey is intriguing, although she should get a welcome fight first. Standup wise I agree, she's got the sharpest striking I've seen in WMMA.

    How is her takedown defense? Grappling? That would really determine if she has a chance against Rousey, although her standup likes good enough to where she might be able to land something devastating in the clinch or during a blitz.

    Perhaps Baszler would be a good matchup, she is an accomplished MMA grappler

    Bellator no longer have a woman division. Plus both gals never showed any interest in Bellator.

    It was followed up with an axe kick to the body once Vitor was on his back.

    Underutilized technique
