Will the UFC193 catfish really fill a 70,000 seat stadium?

    C'mon Dana, we lose a 15 minute welterweight war with two top fives for a 15 second armbar clinic. Ronda is hot, particularly on the scales at weigh-ins, but Aussies wanna see fights.

    Please stick Ronda up against Nunes or Cyborg instead or chuck Reem-JDS in to sweeten the deal, my stupid accommodation is non-refundable.

    Two things wrong with op.

    1. Lawler vs Condit being 15 minutes
    2. Ron being hot

    I don't think ronda's super hot but at the weigh ins, dang she look pretty fine.

    I think holly's the best girl to go the distance with ronda. Holly can really keep her distance and drag fights. I'm not gonna count her out. And she's got some vicious kicks.

    I keep responding to people on this, but I'll do it again (and again after, I'm sure):

    Melbourne is a city with a sporting culture unlike any other. The locals will pack a stadium to watch nearly anything. Women fighting will excite rabid Melbournites and Etihad (a great stadium) will be full of raucus men and women seeking a spectacle.

    Yes, it will be full. They turn up to watch State of Origin (a football game in a code they do not understand and which is a battle between two states which does not even include Victoria, of which Melbourne is the capitol) and pack a stadium then. They'll show up for this.

    Not hot at any weight...does look better at weigh ins though, but that is 3 days a year, and her butt only gets flatter then despite her saying she has the best butt in MMA, it is pretty bad.

    Shut up Australia and be happy you get anything.

    You're lucky you get more than a Bisping - Whittaker FN

    Maybe you'll get lucky and someone will get injured and they won't have a main event and the card will fold and you'll get your money back.

    This is kind of my point, Aussies will be delerious with this card, there is zero need for complaint. I went to UFC FN Hunt vs BF and it was bloody awesome! Even with the list of no-name locals.

    But Ronda is a bigger star than I dreamed we get, just amazing.

    Ronda is a bigger draw than Lawler-Condit.

    It's not even debatable.

    Not to some of the hardcore fans, no. If you're an elitist, I see why you would be bummed. But for the question at hand, the Rousey fight is bigger than the Lawler one.

    You get the biggest star in the UFC; unfortunately you also get the most predictable outcome in the UFC.

    Hopefully Bigfoot - Hunt will be as entertaining as their first fight.

    I don't think they can fit 70,000 in there. Big concerts only get around 60k I think

    Ronda is pretty popular here among women. I had doubts about Robbie and Carlos filling the stadium but Ronda will for sure.

    Ronda is hot. You guys probably never got anything better.

    "Bigger" for who? Chicks, and newbs?

    Bigger why? Cause Dana and Rogan say so?

    I'm willing to bet it's not bigger for 99% of the posters here, or for anyone who's followed the sport for a while.

    You would lose that bet, obviously.

    But in general you're right. The fight IS bigger, but moreso for the casuals, the mainstream. Less so for the avid fight fans.

    Which was what I previously stated.

    Well by you saying it's bigger it sounds like you yourself are buying the hype.

    We both know it's not "bigger" than Lawler/Condit in any way that actually matters to the sport, or a true fan. It's only bigger for Zuffa because more sheep will buy it.

    Etihad's capacity is 56,000. So NO
