The fight is on a Friday.
I'd like for Ronda to box Nunes a little bit before trying to take her down...
Ronda cant box
Pretty sure UFC has had fights on NYE, but have they ever had one of these mega shows on NYE? I'm wondering if moving it to the 30th is to stay away from NYE or just to see what happens?
oh my bad
I hope Nunes bashes Rousey's face in and submits her brutally.
Excellent analysis and one I totally concur with. :bears:
I have a feeling Ronda is gonna get bashed up. Her heart isn't in it, with this recent retirement talk. One clean shot from Nunes is gonna give her flashbacks to last year and considering how long it's taken her to get over it, my guess is she won't be too eager to go through that again and she'll go quietly.
My guess is afterwards she'll be off to Holywood to try to make it as an action star. Doubt she'll succeed.
I agree. I don't think she has the heart in it or the confidence to be a fighter anymore. Her aura was destroyed right along with her fighting career. It's over and this will be her last payday and fight in the UFC.
Nunes Looked Like a Fucking ANIMAL Disposing of Meisha Tate...Ronda Won't WANT it to the Degree Nunes Does and 1nce the Going Gets Tough, Ronda will FOLD...
And NO, her "Action Hero" Career WON'T Go Faaaaaaaaaaar....Ronda's Attraction in Hollywood was Based on the BELIEF She was the "Baddest Woman on the Planet"...w/That Aura FOREVER Gone, the Appeal in Seeing Ronda Rousey On Screen Goes w/It...
Hollywood Likes WINNERS...
Womens MMA :slap:
Nunes looked tough against Tate, but Nunes has losses. This fight likely ends up on the ground and Ronda is able to do her thing.
I normally don't put much stock into internet psycho analysis, especially when it comes to pro athletes and everyone projecting how they might react in that person's shoes.
However, when it comes to Rousey, I guess I need to make an exception or join in with it. Rousey's words, actions, and basically everything outside the ring equal a fighter who isn't going to be as good from this point forward. While Tyson was the most appropriate comparison before, it sure does seem Hamed or Jeff Lacy, etc will be the most appropriate comparison moving forward.
But, I'm going to play both sides of this card and say Rousey wins against Nunes.
In her 1st Public Appearance Since the Loss, Rousey Composed Herself Like a Sexually Abused CHILD...Walking Thru the Airport Defeated, Face COVERED by a Fucking Pillow, w/Her Consoling Boyfriend By her Side...
Then the Whole "Shitting in the Woods" Article...
Gender Be Damned, That was Unbecoming of a FIGHTER, Period...Right Then and There, REED KNEW Rousey was DONE...
Granted, There's PLENTY Women She Could Beat, but Stylistically, Nunez is BAD For Her...& The Timing Just Ain't Right...You Don't Fight Nunez When Your Confidence has NEVER Been Lower...REED Wouldn't have Blamed Dana White @ All for FEEDING a "Gimme" to Rousey, Just to Get Her Back in the Swing of Things...
That screeching, screeching sleazebag Joe Rogan was to blame for this. :nono:
This alone is unbecoming of a fighter. Ronda is done.
Imagine if She were Staring Down Holly Holm Again???...
Snot Bubbles and Fetal Position...
Nunes gonna stomp dat....
I can't believe I will be able to make money on this fight. How is Rousey still a -140 favorite?
I got Nunes at +220. It's gotten much tighter this week but I just can't believe the lingering Rousey hype.
I will be absolute stunned into a coma if she isn't destroyed by Nunes.
Confidence at an all time LOW, Nunes on a high.
I dont see Ronda coming out victorious.
As long as Rousey doesn't think "being in shape" is all she needs to get back to form I think she'll be okay. She'll probably get hurt early and how she responds will be key.
It wasn't that long ago that McGregor got choked out and he still came back and won two fights.
I'm amazed by all the hate for Rousey since her loss. Because of this I'd like to see her beat that girls ass.
The difference is that Rousey has absolutely no stand up.
I would actually like Ronda to win this. I'm a fan of comebacks.
I just don't like the signs she's displayed since her loss. Just seems her mental state is not in a good place.
REED Never Minded Rousey's Arrogance, Until the Holly Holm Weigh-In...
Ronda MANUFACTURED Contempt for Holm, UNDERestimated her Soft Spoken, "Preacher's Daughter" Ways and ASSumed She Could BULLY Holly...It was FORCED and Completely Unnecessary...Sometimes a Fighter DESERVES to Lose, and Ronda Rousey Did, the Night Holm Whipped her Ass...
REED's Actually SCARED for Ronda Now, Though...Would Looooooooooooooooove to See Her Reclaim Her Spot Atop Women's MMA and UFC in General...Problem is, Ronda's Spirit Seems BROKEN...She's Never Looked, Spoken or Acted More VULNERABLE...& That's the LAST Attitude You Want to Exhibit Against a HARD Bitch Like Amanda Nunes...
REED HOPES Rousey Wins, but EXPECTS Nunes to PAINFULLY Usher Her Into Retirement, in 1 or 2 Rounds...
"I'm Still Grieving the Person that Could Have Won It All, Uuuuum, But...I Have to Live Up to the Fact that I'm NOT Her, That's Just Who I'd LIKE to Be. And Instead, I'm What I NEED to Be, for Myself and Everyone Else."
- Ronda Rousey, on the "Countdown to Nunes-Rousey"
She's Talking w/the Mindset of Someone that NEEDS a Confidence Builder, 1st...Amanda Nunes is Anything But and a VERY Bad Matchup, Especially for Someone Still TRAUMATIZED Over a Loss...
I hope Cruz bitchslaps Garbrandt. I want to see that little thug get embarrassed.
Well, not so surprising Rousey got routed. Despite what I said above, I did pick Nunes tonight, but I really thought Rousey would make a real effort at getting it to the ground.
I don't think Nunes is likely to be champ for long. She's looked dominant for two fights, maybe more, but 13-4 in women's mma just isn't a record that figures to be a dominant champ.
I like Garbrandt well enough, but I am surprised that he shut down Cruz so well. He didn't look like he had good defense, but I've never seen Cruz have so much trouble landing. Pretty much a shit fight, but sorta interesting to see a guy like Cruz get more or less outclassed. Garbrandt doesn't figure to make too many defenses before losing, but he may be around a while as a top challenger/champion.
I'd pick Dillashaw over both of them right now. Really giood fighter.
Rousey gut wrecked, that was kind of sad to watch. Nunes should be champ for a while, I guess that Shevchenko girl is next, and that should be a good fight. Not sure who else is a viable contender, maybe the Polish bitch could move up.
Separate names with a comma.
