yeah, ronda has this. kaufman's stand up is, while very solid by wmma standards, still very limited. basic combos without real power. her tdd isnt great, and her ground game is awful... alexis-freakin-davis controlled her with ease in the third round of their fight. shes tough but shes not highly skilled.

basically shes about as perfect style match up for ronda as shes gonna get.

at 1/6 on tho (1.16 or -600 for the americans) that isnt a good value bet

Congrats on Mexico!

I'm seriously considering putting up to £1,000 on Ronda FTW.

I can't understand why Davis stood and traded with Kaufman. If she'd have taken her down asap, I'm sure she'd have subbed her. IMHO Nunes has got a better punch than Sarah.

Damn dude, anything can happen, that is way over my head to risk.
I'm fine with (and expecting to) losing my $50, and can only gain a nice chunk of change in the event of upset.
You must feel to have everything under control, which you probably have judging by that fireplace pic

There is no way Ronda can lose. All it takes is one simple takedown. All-in on Ronda would make sense to me. She is first of a new breed of women fighters. After this one she should think about a mixed match.

Ronda is definitely a favorite in this one. The girl is just amazing on the ground, and it is almost impossible to prevent her from taking you down.

However, she has never been seriously hit (kicked or punched). If that happens, and, sooner or later, probably will, we'll see how tough she really is. A true test would be against Cyborg. If it ever happens, I would love to see Ronda demolish Cyborg, but I'm not sure it would be the case.
