This shouldn't be the main event just because it could end so quickly.



Thats like saying JDS vs Cain shouldnt be main event because that can end quickly too

I personally think Rousey on PPV will do awesome I for one will be ordering this event

WAR ROUSEY

Cyborg vs rousey I wanted
Rousey vs Liz I don't.

Wish they could have put this as a fox or fuel main event
And had bantam or fly weight title as ppv main event

I honesty thing some of my friends probably will not go now to live event which may actually benefit me now so I can stay in la Friday night and not drive both days to Honda center

Excited to see Rousey fight, even though I know it'll be over in the blink of an eye. I wonder how the odds are going to open up on that one. RR will be a *huge* favourite.

I don't really know who Carmouche is... I'm still a newbie to women's MMA. It sounds like she's just another arm to add to Ronda's collection, but it'll still be exciting to kickstart the division.

I don't know if it was the best idea to make it the main event but I can understand why UFC is trying to throw its weight behind this bout to get people talking and excited.

I'd definitely be looking forward to Rousey v Cyborg. Hope that one isn't too far off.

Pretty much. A showcase fight to introduce her to the world from the "big" stage.

True. It will definitely build Ronda some fans for those that don't know who she is. And also validate why they handed her the belt to start things off.

What a farce. I'd be pissed if I were Benson or Nate....or any other one of those guys. Or Hendo and Machida.

as Shawn said earlier, i don't think Hendo will mind it being a 3 round fight.

i think hendo vs machida will help sell people that are on the fence about buying the ppv. not sure how much it will help though

Anyone else notice how engaged Shogun was to that conversation? Shogun know's how to get with a lady.



I feel bad for Liz, she's a tough fighter n all but, Ronda Round 1 armbar.

Same guys bitching about Hendricks getting passed on WARing Rousey vs some chick I've never heard of. In a main event. On PPV.

I'd buy Barao McDonald way before I'd buy Rousey vs anyone.

There's only one good female fight out there. After that, zero.

I bet the odds on the PG will be Rousey -900 at least.

My thoughts as well.


Wouldnt it be something of she were to come out and lose!!! Oh man that'd be some funny shit.

Nothing against Rousey but I hope she loses. It's easy to be the best when your virtually the only one in a division.

Of course ratings will probably be high the first few events with a female . Just because its so new. But once people see just how un-technical the females are ratings will likely drop with a female main event

Yeah, you apparently haven't watched much WMMA lately. They're catching up, bro.
