    The ufc made this match to take advantage of the headline "RR to fight boxing champion" before holm lost - which they know is gonna happen.

    They know Tate will still be there for the trilogy 6 months from now.

    Ronda even tried to clinch with Bethe, so for sure she will try to clinch with Holm.

    Ronda will probably test the waters standing.. She'll go for the clinch if the fight isn't going her way. I remember the idiotic "lol Ronda will get wrecked if she tries to trade with Bethe" comments after someone made a thread about how Ronda will keep it standing

    Ronda will do what she does best. She doesn't need to prove anything

    Just because she did it with Bethe doesn't mean she'd try it with Holly. IMO she Couture's Holly's Toney.

    It will stay standing, but only because she will knock Holm out before she has a chance to get ahold of her.

    It will always be her safety net and most people won't care that her striking is still atrocious. Let's hope Holm doesn't have a Zingano moment and fall for Ronda's request to keep things exciting.

    She will trade for about 2 seconds and move in for the judo throw.

    Ronda via armbar - 3.8 seconds.

    I think she will tentatively stand and trade for a bit, but the moment she gets tagged she is clinching for that throw

    Holm doesn't have much punching power and she always takes a shitload of time to find her range. Her best weapon is her kicks but Ronda will always be too close and aggressive to allow her to throw even one. Ronda can perfectly well keep it standing and win by first round stoppage, despite Holm's credentials.

    That man-jaw on Holm is just a target for Ronda, isn't it?

    Ronda by KO (Uppercut), 0:43 of Round 1.

    It's not her style or her personality, but it'd be lulzy if Ronda took a couple of moves out of old mate Nick Diaz's playbook:

    ronda is not stupid,she won't stand and trade,why should she? she'll throw a couple to get the clinch,then its straight to the ground. its either an armbar or rear naked,this won't go past 1 round.

    doubt it....Ronda will just move in like a rabid pitbull eating shots while throwing a bunch of random sloppy swings ..if Holm's chin can hold up to that power Ronda will most certainly clinch up and drop her
