I would love to see her lose just to shake things up a bit, So tired of the UFC hype machine hanging out the back of her. if Carmouche was to win i doubt she would get half the publicity Rousey has recieved, i also think that Rousey would recieve an instant rematch regardless of the way she was defeated. Carmouche by Decision

Love her or hate her, but no Ronda = no women's MMA in the UFC.

Would you care to back up that statement with any proof? There are lots of extremely talented WMMA fighters out there, several of which have already signed with the UFC. Rousey is overrated

If she loses this fight, I feel it will truly ruin the womens division in UFC. That being said if it really is a good fight say FOTN; then maybe it can be salvaged. I feel UFC has put way too much emphasis on this; as it stands now any failure of the hand picked champion would ruin what credibility DW and UFC has surrounding MMA.
I am in agreement with the above statement that she needs to lose and eat some humble pie though... Just has to wait a couple more fights down the road.

There's a difference between talent and star power. She isn't the only talented fighter in the division but she combines talent and star power like no other.

It's impossible to actually prove her effect on the women's division, but Dana White has all but gone on record as being a Rousey nuthugger (heh.) And if that doesn't convince you - You've never started a giveaway thread for any other fighter's loss.

Rousey is the real deal as a fighter, and the most marketable woman in MMA. Deal with it.

I'm with this guy. If this was a different organization Ronda losing would probably hurt wmma. But I think in the UFC it would just show that there is some talent out there. I think a close fight with Liz winning in the championship rounds would work the best.

Deal with it? I'm content with the fact that she's marketable, but it does nothing to legitimize WMMA when you crown a champ who is largely untested in her career and then nuthug her to no end. All of the nuthugging is what has set the UFC up for hurting if she loses, they created the star power she has. I think the UFC will be just fine without her as champ.
