UFC 207 will comprise the long-awaited yield of Ronda Rousey. Since Rousey lost the UFC bantamweight title to Holly Holm at UFC 193, the strap has been tossed around like a game of hot potato from Holm to Miesha Tate into Amanda Nunes. Rousey doesn’t have an easy task to reclaim the title, as Nunes is a competitive finisher.
The co-main occasion features another title fight, as Dominick Cruz seems to shield his bantamweight title against heavy-hitting Cody Garbrandt. With Cruz and Garbrandt chirping each other leading into the struggle, you need to expect some fireworks.
Amanda Nunes vs Ronda Rousey
Nunes is among the best finishers in MMA now, as 12 of her 13 successes have come through stoppage. Throughout the early part of her career, she got by on her physical presents but has been gaining the technical skills to cooperate with it. The biggest leaps and bounds have come from the standup game, as she’s learning how to exploit her span and electricity thanks to her work at American Top Team.
Nunes’ wrestling skills are not exactly stellar offensively, but she’s great at maintaining the battle standing so that she can utilize her natural power. If she is able to get in the clinch, she is strong and will routinely use this ability as a faux wrestling game by knocking her opponent to the ground with her strikes.
Top controller is vital to Nunes around the floor, as any extra stress on her cardio is damning for your winner. If she can attain top position, she’s brutal ground and pound that capitalizes on her power and her long achieve relative to the branch. The Brazilian has a black belt in BJJ, but rarely uses it from the very best unless she can get hold of her opponent’s back.
There have been two big knocks on Nunes during her career: one is cardio and the other one is fight IQ. To be very frank, her cardio is bad. She parts ancient and she’s never been in a position to put forth much of an effort beyond the second round. Nunes has made some questionable decisions in the Octagon, but training at ATT and simply having more expertise in the cage have helped to temper this issue.
MMA is a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately sport. Rousey was its main star until her mystique-shattering loss to Holly Holm. Ever since, people are quick to talk down Rousey. However, occasionally a loss is just what a fighter should get back on track (*cough* Conor McGregor *cough*).
