Barao is so explosive, but IF he has a weekends I would assume it would probably be fighting off his back. McDonald is a good grappler that could keep him there.

Porier and Swanson both have similar styles and Swanson seems to have gotten his career back on track. This should be a damn good scrap.

This card lacks star power, but every matchup is very evenly matched.

It is a nice little free TV card. I guess UFC has signed more than 4 125 lbers now.

I didn't even realize she signed with UFC. She is doing everything she can to avoid fighting Rousey at 135

Yeah, she owed Strikeforce a couple of fights. I agree that she wants no part of Ronda.

Tito must be fricking or something. Why would anyone let that dumbass manage their career? Tank Abbott said it best the other week when he stated "tito can't even manage himself"

No way in Hell is Cyborg scared of Rousey. Cyborg is very good grappler with freakish strength (and looks), with awesome striking.

If they fought I'd have my money on Cyborg

Cyborg is afraid of getting off the juice in order to cut to 135

why should the champ have to move up to a weight class she has never fought at to challenge some cheater?

If CC wants Rousey's belt, she needs to go and get it, simple as that. And I agree that Cyborg would beat Rousey 9/10 times

there's no way that's close to healthy to do. there needs to be a rule about how much weight a fighter can cut.

Yea no way it can be. Kyle Bradley said he witnessed Gleison Tibau make weight at 155 and the next day he showed everyone that he weighed 185
