UFC 207 Tonight: Rousey's Return
How are you guys feeling about this one?

I don't know how to call this one but I'm leaning Nunes.

RE: UFC 207 Tonight: Rousey's Return
Nunes definitely has the edge in striking. She as a good 1-2 combo and unlike Ronda, can change angles and throw kicks, if if it's not done well.

Watching clips of Nunes, she gets takedowns but her shots are sloppy. Not Meisha Tate sloppy, but enough for Ronda to capitalize on. I imagine she's going to keep at medium range most of the fight and not go for any takedowns.

Ground Positioning has yet to be seen, but I suspect Nunes has a slight edge.
Submissions, Ronda definitely has the ability to end fights in an instant. This hasn't been seen from Nunes.

I think Nunez is tougher and will pound her senseless. If she can avoid the one trick pony armbar she wins.

Although Ronda is definitely hotter.

Nunes has a cute blonde girlfriend.

^ Very doubtful she basically got called a CHild Murderer last time for reposting the "We Need to talk about Sandy Hook" video.

This vid lays out a lot of Nunes' flaws:





Rousey may have a broken spirit, but there is plenty of opportunity for her to win this one.

Nunes' sloppy takedown led to Osoto Gaeshi by a European Kickboxer.

Tate also threw her with an all-too-easy technically flawed Yoko Guruma (Lateral Throw). @5:10 in the video posted above.

Watching the embeddeds now. Cruz got into Gabrant's head way too easily.

if, and I mean IF Ronda improved her footwork and can shell/avoid the right hand of Nunes and counter with a left hook.. Should make the striking aspect interesting.

The number one thing that actually worries me in this fight will be whether Nunes throws hard leg kicks throughout the fight, esp in the first round when she has the most power. Her brutal low kicks will take the spring out of Anyone's step.

Ronda has the edge in the clinch and if she can capitalize in the scramble like she has beautifully shown in the past she will hold the edge she has on the ground.

I'd say she's a 6.58 to 6.89 but you have to factor the 2 she is standing next to.. <You know that will always trick the eyes, it's just science my friend!

That would imply that Rousey would pivot off the centerline.
We both know that's not happening.

Ronda is too tiger-style to counter-strike. All of her skills involve rushing her opponent.

I used to think Robin Black was really fruity, but he's kind of grown on me.
