An upset is definitely going to happen in one of the three main fights, but its hard to tell which one for sure.

Amanda Nunes is not that exciting of a fighter. If Megan can use her height correctly, along with her power, a win over Nunes is definitely possible.

Megan doesn't have a hope in hell against Amanda.

Way too dominant in every aspect of the game.

If Megan some how manages to win it will be one of the biggest upsets in mma history.

With greater height and reach, Megan might have puncher's luck and catch Amanda coming in, but I don't think it will happen. Megan's the one to bet on however; it's the only way you might make some money. If you're thinking of betting on Amanda, might as well keep your funds in your savings account.

The ML on Nunes isn't even worth a bet.

Megan comes in at +650, so a small risk with a W might payoff.

"A non-event" as Daniel Cormier summed it up.

Unfortunately Megan fell at the first hurdle. Many have been unable to get out of the first round against Nunes... Cyborg, Holly, Miesha, Ronda, all couldn't get out of the first.

There was a clear speed difference and I don't think Megan threw a meaningful shot. She just ended up looking like a deer caught in the headlights and was inferior in all aspects - striking, clinching and grappling.

I would love to see a rematch against Cyborg. Cris lost, on the surface, due to technical errors and reckless abandon. But at least she was fighting to win and throwing meaningful shots, going down swinging.

I still think that Cris, with a more technical, defensive (early on) approach. Building to a higher work rate if she can get into rounds 2, 3+ can cause Nunes a lot of problems.

Germaine de Randamie survived a dominant first round against Nunes, and went on to win the 2nd round with superior technical striking. But then unfortunately she ran out of gas herself and that allowed Nunes to lean on her grappling and get takedowns to win rounds 3, 4 & 5.

The most underrated aspect of Cyborg's game is her gas tank.

Nunes isn't untouchable and in a way, these quick routings don't help her evolve or learn as a fighter. She NEEDS to win some fights in the first round, otherwise it becomes a hard night at the office for her.

Holly showed Amanda the easiest way to beat Megan. Take her to the ground.

I found pretty cool the americana from the reverse triangle she finished the fight with.

Juliana Pena has called out Amanda for the 135 pound title. That might be an interesting one if it went to the mat. Juliana is big, strong and a good wrestler. I think Amanda would probably win, but I'd like to watch.
