    Wow, you sound like a really knowledgeable and totally productive human being. Everything you've said makes total sense and totally isn't at all something someone retarded would say. It sounds like the perfect business decision.

    Also, it's awesome because you are a dipshit.


    Anyway, I've got Rousey on this one. Women's MMA has a severe lack of Grappling ability (in america anyway, japanese women's mma is ridiculous) and I seriously doubt Tate has the takedown defense to stop a Olympic champion. It's science.

    I'm betting on Rousey. She's got the throwing and ground game to match up or out match anyone in her league. Only way I see Tate having a chance is if she can keep out of the takedown range and actualy force Ronda to participate in a stand up fight, something she really hasn't had to do yet. Even in a standing fight its hard to say who has a better chance. Tates past fights arn't that impressive in the stand up aspect either and she hasn't really shown much of a takedown defense either so again I'm betting on Rousey.

    Awww, come on guys, have some faith in the reigning champ!

    Its really tough for me to choose/pick which of these women will come out with the victory; I'm flip-flopping worse than Romney!

    I've been following Ronda since before this fight was even announced and following this particular fight since the beginning. One part of me wants to see Rowdy execute a beautiful throw straight into a submission. The other part of me wants nothing more than to see Ronda red-faced, exhausted and getting her face smashed in by Tate.

    Will that happen, not sure? Rousey is so explosive and aggressive and executes her Judo perfectly for the cage (and in all her nogi comps) its difficult to see how it could end any differently than all her other fights. But Tate is no slouch either (she is the fucking 135lbs champion after all) and has been wrestling since high school. Will it be enough to stop the freight train that is Ronda "Rowdy' Rousey? Your guess is as good as mine.

    I'm going for Tate on this one. But win or lose, this should be a damned good fight.

    I think Rhonda is going to walk through Tate. Looking forward to the event.

    Not trying to take anything away from Tate but at that age Rousey was competing in the 2004 Olympics...

    In terms of grappling I just can't see Tate having very much in her arsenal to bother Rousey...
