All three punches that landed.It will be interesting to see if a striking strategy (and by striking strategy I don't mean closing your eyes and wailing forward) can keep Rhonda at bay. Sarah has a lot of decisions on her record in the big leagues. That's a lot of time to fend off an Olympic judo champ with 3 first round subs. And do I need to mention Sarah has a loss to an armbar? Big fan of Sarah but I gotta go with Rousey on this one.Train Judo!

I dont know about a KO because Ronda has a strong neck but you could pick her apart from the outside ala running like Condit because you know shes coming forward like a unstoppable frate trane looking to clinchHope you got that footwork ready to stay away. And if she does get you PLEASE just tap. Miesha looks like a idiot for not tapping & is losing alot of money sitting on the shelf because she couldnt swallowBest of luck & im not a kissass like everyone that sees a pro post. I'm a fan but i wont pucker up.

 I like being the underdog. I hope the best Rousey shows up so there are no excuses when I get the KO/win!
