Who do you like in this fight?

I trust your expertise since you are the same height and weight as these fighters.

I am taller and weigh more than them. I picked Frankie to beat Faber. He still has some gas left in his tank.

i see your point but i think you're over-estimating the effect.

most HW's with a combat weight under 265 barely have to worry about the upward limit. that's an incredible luxury that the other weight classes have little or no idea about. the two champions cain and werdum are WELL under 265 combat weight, so it's a hardship that doesn't have the smallest hold on them. it's only the reems / lesnars / nelsons / bigfoot that have to stress and struggle like the rest.

i've gotten over the fact that jones is a huge a-hole and gamer of the system. he's also that guy with subpar KO power who brilliantly humiliates people... the legend of his division and potential UFC GOAT even at his young age.

but, the steroids. a titanic issue that must be cleared up before the GOAT issue can ever be properly discussed. across all of the divisions.

Good win by Benson Henderson after being robbed in the Donald Cerrone fight.

Damn, that was quick. VERY quick.

I can see Rousey retiring as an undefeated champion now.

now? took you this long? there comes a point when you stop making excuses for her opponents and just start realizing how superb her grappling, general strength and balance is. i was convinced after her mcmann assault. she's now won her last three fights in 96 seconds...and her striking improves in the meantime.

that was a horrible gameplan by cat though. i know she wants to avoid starting slow but charging ronda isn't the smartest thing. it's what caught meisha as well in a clinch. i don't see anyone touching her in that division. holm has striking ability but is too tentative and had to go to a decision vs. a barely top 15 fighter. ronda would hip toss holm and it would be game over. she owns that division and everyone else is fighting for second best

Rousey hasn't face Cyborg Santos or Gina Carano yet. But yeah I don't think anyone would believe either have a good chance against her at this point. Maybe there is one in the next 5 years.

I don't really understand her last 3 opponents' game plans though when you almost guarantee Rousey is gonna jump at you right off.
