    He should at least try to pounce holmes jk. Holms vs nunes-zingano is fine.

    It makes sense but Holm has way more promotional juice being undefeated and a boxing champ so I think they will protect her until she gets a title shot. Then she will lose and leave mma.

    Maybe they want to set up separate fights for them so that they can keep both contenders going? Having them fight each other just guarantees that one of them will have a set-back, but having them both fight other fighter could potentially keep both hype trains moving forward.

    If he wants a serious contender, he has to be patient.

    Nunes or Holm could be a threat to Rousey, but they aint just yet.
    they both need at least one more year 2-3 more fights.

    Dana can feed them to Rousey whenever he wants. just depends on if he actually wants a fight to last more than 30 secs.

    I think that Nunes would beat Holly fairly easily, just by how lackluster Holly has looked in the UFC.

    Nah, don't make them fight until one loses or beats Ron. Can't kill a contender.

    Holm or Nunes vs Pena/Eye winner then the other vs Kaufman.

    Great idea.....take the only two names being forwarded for title shots and eliminate one of them, instead of just giving them both gimme fights, so that you can at least have two non rematches for Rondas belt any time in the near future....

    I just don't understand why these girls aren't announced yet, we could have a series of these two going best out of three, we've had that in mens MMA we should be able to have it in female.

    Cause both of them are potential million dollar PPVs for retarded brainwashed Rousey casuals and Joe the company man Rogan. Holm has that "best female pro boxer" BS hype that the UFC could use. Nunes has some decent can crushing footage.

    Much better off having them fight cans who would never get another shot at Rousey (Davis, Kaufman). Holm vs. Nunes is too risky of a fight. Holms is backed by C-level boxing and Greg Jackson's anti-fighting pro-judging system. She could easily eek out a boring ass decision that makes both look bad.

    Now I'm confused. Ronda has a fight set up already. They could set up both Holm and Nunes for fights around that same time as Ronda's next fight against Tate and then whoever looks more impressive at the time could be Ronda's next match-up (assuming Cyborg isn't ready).

    Why does everyone just want to feed rousey instead of letting these girls take time and get better

    Exactly. Maybe this way some of these opponents for Rousey might actually start giving her some competition (probably not, but maybe).

    For nunes i agree but holly is what she is, an extra fight will make fuck all difference.

    Might as well have her fight the champ and see what she can do, best case she pulls of an upset and a big rematch can be done.

    Feed? We want to beat Rousey! I won't be able to stand listening to her talk smack for the rest of my years on this planet.

    Completely disagree. Holm is a boxer that just transitioned a few years ago. I see no reason why she wouldn't get better over the next 8-12 months.

    I actually agree, Nunez has more to loose. I'm looking forward to Holly Holm and Honda, we will surely see a quick armbar, but Holm is good enough to keep our show going.

    You are correct. I will sleep well this evening.
