stupid fight, tate just got F'd up by Cat.. why is she fighting for the title?

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Its not that Misha cant win but she is not the fighter id predict to be dictating the fight. She could pop Ronda with something that puts Ronda on her ass but do you follow her down if she's not basically finished already? Id say probably not.

She has to stuff Ronda's TD game for 5 rounds and find a way to win rounds at the same time, thats a tall order. I think she needs to find a way to stop Ronda and thats probably not going to happen. I favor Ronda to win by TKO or sub but I guess I might be less surprised than most if Ronda decides to stand and strike more than she should or cant take Misha down right away in the early rounds and gets into trouble.

Ronda didn't utilize a full fight camp for this fight and IMO that's a bad idea that could play a role if this fight goes long.

If Misha is going to beat Ronda its now or never IMO Ronda will do nothing but improve as she matures as a fighter.

I honestly think Randa isn't just better on the ground, I think even her stand-up is now better than Tate. I don't expect her to win by KO, but I do expect her to make this fight look even sillier than their first meeting.

Also, armbar round 1.

I think Tate wins if she can keep space between herself and Rousey.

Its just hard for me to see her pulling that off for five rounds, Ronda only needs one mistake and she has you in deep water.


Also I see nothing that would lead me to assume her stand up has surpassed Tate's. She has shown she can use her stand up effectively enough to set up her judo and that in turn sets up her BJJ but I dont think she could go in and out point Misha. If anything she could possibly hurt her with a well placed shot but I dont think Ronda's striking more refined.

The girl to beat Ronda is not Tate. I can't see this going any other way besides the first fight.

Cat has a good chance at beating her but IMO she is still the underdog.

Cat definitely has the biggest chance to take the title from Rousey. Tate won't even come close to taking that belt.
