so yeah...now its going to be rousey vs holm in jan....

I think its another easy w for rousey.....

the only way holm wins is if she can get ronda early with a big ko punch while rousey is testing out her striking....otherwise if ronda gets hit and doesn't like it....its going to the ground via crazy judo toss and easy sub for rousey

holm has pillow fists. she has absolutely no chance of beating ronda. this may even beat the 14 second cat fight. what a waste of money people will spend to watch this..

brock lesnar put it best- ronda is a man amongst women.

its not even competitive and if they dont make interesting fights that whole ronda rousey flame will burn out imo

Different opponent, same result.

Ronda wins in 22 seconds via, I don't know.......lets go with TKO via ripping Holm's heart clean out of her chest or something else totally normal like that by Rousey standards as of late.

Agreed easy fight for Rousey. The UFC will be able to hype Holm as the best striker Ronda has ever faced, etc, but she will get crushed.

So apparently it wasn't even a Tate injury or anything. They just said "Nevermind, let's do Holm vs Rousey instead of a 3rd fight with Tate".
Here's Ronda selling it, and selling it hard.

Holm wins... so long as they are in boxing gloves and no grappling is allowed.

The problem here is that they pulled Miesha because there percievably is more fan interest in a holm fight. That's all well and good, but what happens if (when) Rousey beats Holm? Does Tate then get the shot that she justifiably earned? I find it hard to believe that there won't be even less fan interest at that point! So then what? Pass Tate over again for the next Bethe Correia that managed to talk her way into another likely 30 second mud hole stomping??

Remember that point we knew we'd eventually get to when there is nobody left in the UFC that we'd like to see fight Rousey? I think we're just about there....

Outside of Jessica Eye, there really is no one that I can think of that I would like to see Ronda fight. But Eye just can't seem to put a few together to get that shot, so.....

this holm fight is promoters doing what they do best. holm a "boxing legend" undefeated MMA fighter who gets washed up in 12 seconds from the UFC golden girl. now there is more hype for ronda to be promoted to fight cyborg. ufc is really milking ronda way too hard and in some way i feel like it is going to backfire on them. how i dont know but you cant place the entire company on 1 or 2 peoples backs. that will never work for longevity.

they just cant seem to bud new stars and thats scary.

I agree, but I would have a lot less problem with Tate not getting the shot she earned if she hadnt been destroyed by her twice already.

After watching that video i am now convinced that Rousey will tap out Holms even quicker than i was originally thinking. lol!

i agree. it was hard to watch that highlight footage. holm is awkward as a fighter and for ger being such a stand out boxer her mma striking seems to be shit.

there is absolutely no way holm wins this fight.

rousey has to be 50-1 odds here

What am I missing? I still think Ronda will kill her, but I thought that was an impressive enough highlight clip. Her kicks were much more effective than I would expect from a boxer MMA Purist

different strokes i guess.

that highlight clip is shit to me. i think it shows her technique is sloppy and predictable and it repeats that over and over again. terrible video imo. doesnt show world class anything.

i know that sounds harsh but that is just what i see when i watch that clip. holm will be destroyed by ronda

I'm drainbamage on this. Her highlight reel looked very predictable and will be easy for Rhonda to read and implement her game with ease.

For what it's worth, Im with FistK. I saw the "lol" smilies from you guys before I watched the video and as I was watching it I kept expecting something funny to happen, because otherwise it looked pretty good to me.
It's easy to say her technique looks predictable when you're only seeing 5 to 10 seconds of a fight at a time, but all those girls getting headkick KO'd and and doubled over by body shots didn't seem like they were doing such a hot job of predicting her technique! lol!!!

With that said (and FistK probably agrees 100%);
Her level of competition was shit.
She's still not in Ronda's league.
She's still gonna get absolutely throttled by Ronda.

Lol oh yeah I completely agree. I think ronda will kill her. In a few previous fights I have thought before hand "man this chick might give her a hard time" but I dont feel that at all with Holm.

I was just saying when I was reading the comments about how pathetic she was and how terrible she looked I opened the video expecting to see a bumbling idiot and I saw her snapping off leg kicks that were hurting me as I watched and I thought "I don't get it" lol

Think that might be a bit of a stretch. I dont really think any one on here thinks she is pathetic. She wouldn't be in the UFC if she didnt have some solid talent. It's just as you said we feel she is not even close to Rhonda's level and a pure striker i wouldn't give to much of a chance with Rhonda. Plus like the obvious was stated before Holms level of talent that she fought is no where near what Rhonda has been fighting and Rhonda has made most of her fights look easy compared to Holms who had to work a lot harder to achieve her wins against lesser competition.
