Got to bet on Ronda. She's not the great striker that some would have us believe but she will trade with anyone, she likes brawling to create a clinch.

Problem for McMann is that her strengths are on the mat too, and she will want to beat Ronda there. I don't think she can, and the earlier in the fight she takes Ronda down, the worse it'll be for her.

Olympic wrestling > Olympic judo.

McMann by stoppage round 2. I'm surprised people are treating McMann as "just another victim of the armbar" and not seeing what exactly her credentials are. I sure wouldn't be shocked if Ronda did armbar her, but it will be far more difficult than doing it to Tate or Carmouche. I just can't wait for the day we all get to see Ronda leave the octagon with her shitty attitude, and penis tucked between her legs.

Normally I would agree with Olympic Wrestling > Olympic Judo however I think Rousey has the much better grappling once the fight gets to the ground and her stand up is slightly above McManns. I do believe McMann will be able to take her down but then I think Rousey will be able to counter and get the submission victory.

McMann with the win after Vince McMahon interferes. After the bout, Vince reveals that Sara McMann is actually Sara McMahon, and that this was all an orchestrated plot to cost Rousey - UFC's "biggest star" ever - her title, thereby costing UFC hundreds of millions of dollars. In the aftermath, the UFC succumbs to WWE in ratings and PPV buys and eventually folds.

For Mens, yes, for Womens, no. Womens wrestling is relatively new and not nearly as competitive on an international level as Judo is. So while there is no doubt behind McManns wrestling ability, the level of competition she faced is not the same as Rousey. I would, and am, picking a bronze judo winner over a silver wrestling winner.

If this was Mens then it would be the complete opposite as both internally in the US and nationally wrestling competition level is insane.

'dem arms.

This is going to be a great ******* fight. Sara's the biggest test to Ronda's belt. That wrestling is seriously good, but she's never faced a savage like Rousey. Ronda is in such good shape coming in off a fight just a few weeks ago too, and that could be a huge factor in this fight. It's been 10 months since McMann fought, so she's not going to have the cage exposure that Ronda has. I'd love to see Ronda take the win, but this is going to be a great fight. I can't wait!

Also, it's not as simple as Wrestling vs Judo. The BJJ is the key to this fight. They're both capable of taking eachother down, but will McMann be able to handle Ronda's jiu jitsu. She's never been in a guard as dangerous as Ronda's, and the key to the fight for McMann will be neutralising that. I don't think she's going to be able to though.

I dont believe she can; her strength is to take the fight into Rousey's world, the longer the fight is on the ground the higher the probability of McMann being subbed, regardless of who is on top. Also, I believe the striking is even at best (I slightly favor Rousey), and Rousey's high level judo will be a more than capable counter to McMann's high level wrestling.....

The closer we get, the more I wonder if McMann will be quick enough to take Ronda down, without Ronda having time to think of a counter throw herself. Then Rousey's brute strength could be the key factor.
