    Anyone think that Cat has a legit shot at winning? As discussed in another thread, my concern is her being such a slow starter in past fights. That spells disaster against Ronda, who will come out guns blazing. But if Cat can make it out of the first round, it gets interesting. The longer the fight goes, the better for Cat. Can she win? I personally don't think so...but hopefully we get to see a competitive 3-4-5 round fight.

    Thoughts?

    I hope Cat worked on her wrestling/td defense, cause she was taken down by Miesha fairly easy. But I think Ronda will stand more to show her improved striking.
    Clinch is Cat's strength but that's where Ronda gets her throws. I think Ronda has more tools in this one, but I hope Cat can make it 5 rounds.

    Rousey via TKO within the first 2 minutes.

    Yea I think she has a shot. The longer the fight goes the better it will be for Cat. She really turns it up in the 3rd round. Ronda slows down after the first and question Rondas conditioning.

    Cat is a tough chick. I think this is an interesting fight. No prediction by me, but I'll be watching for sure.

    I def dont think Ronda will TKO Cat but it could be an armbar fairly quickly

    i'm with you and song. it's going to be in the first, and i think it will be easy for her. i hope i'm surprised and cat wins, but i don't think she can. i'd love to see cat land a well placed shot, and drop ronda, but then we'd see another immediate rematch.

    Sadly I see clinch, throw, armbar. Cat will probably be too tough to tap and will end up injured.

    In my dream scenario she will avoid the toss dominate the clinch and give Ronda a new nose like the one Silva gave Rich.

    3rd round early stoppage by Herb Dean. Rhonda wins again and then retires over boredom.

    Be entertaining at first then once they clinch cats getn launched...only way I see cat winning is tiring ronda out in late rounds and tko her..but i got ronda in 2

    Haha I love Rich, one of my favorites, Cat loves the knees and that is the best example of destruction in the clinch I could think of , maybe Wand Rampage would be a better example. Either way fingers crossed for Rhonda Rhinoplasty.

    I'll never bet against RR but I'm really pulling for Cat here. Her last fight against Nunes was probably my favorite WMMA fight. They both worked so hard and had some great moves back and forth, Cats 2 throws were awesome. I'm a sucker for a good underdog with a great back story coming into a fight. Having said all that my see Cat being about 80% defensive in the first to weather the storm. If she can survive and get some momentum going she'll inflict some decent damage but will probably end up getting subbed late in the second. In a perfect world Cat would come in aggressive with strikes, avoid/reverse RR clinch and take her down and finish via GNP..... I can dream.

    Cat is a slow starter and RR brings fire from the jump.

    I like Cat but I don't think she gets out of the first.

    Maybe Honda is too eager to show her striking and gets caught? Maybe Cat survives the early onslaught and wins in the later rounds? Maybe Honda is busy and distracted and over looking Cat? Naaaahhh, Ronda ragdolls her then takes her arm home.

    Cat is too slow of a starter and that is exactly the opposite of what you want vs Ronda. Ronda dumps her on here head and submits her in the first rd.
