UFC 207 will feature the long-awaited return of Ronda Rousey. Since Rousey lost the UFC bantamweight title to Holly Holm in UFC 193, the ring has been tossed around like a game of hot potato from Holm to Miesha Tate to Amanda Nunes. Rousey does not have a simple task to recover the title, as Nunes is a competitive finisher.
The co-main event features another title fight, as Dominick Cruz looks to defend his bantamweight title against heavy-hitting Cody Garbrandt. Together with Cruz and Garbrandt chirping every other contributing into the fight, you should 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 via stoppage. Through the early part of her career, she got by on her physical gifts but has been gaining the technical skills to go along with it. The largest leaps and bounds have come in the standup game, as she’s learning how to harness her span and electricity thanks to her job at American Top Team.
Nunes’ wrestling skills aren’t exactly stellar offensively, but she is great at maintaining the fight standing so she can utilize her normal power. If she is able to get into the clinch, she’s powerful and will frequently use this power as a faux wrestling game by minding her opponent to the floor with her strikes.
Best control is essential to Nunes on the floor, as any extra stress on her cardio is damning for your champion. If she can attain top position, she has brutal ground and pound that capitalizes on her ability and her long reach relative to the division. The Brazilian has a black belt in BJJ, but rarely uses it from the top unless she can find her opponent’s back.
There were two large knocks on Nunes throughout her career: one is cardio and the other is struggle IQ. To be quite frank, her cardio is bad. She gases early and she’s never been able to put forth much of an effort past the next round. Nunes has made some questionable decisions in the Octagon, but coaching at ATT and only having more experience in the cage have helped to temper this situation.
MMA is a what-have-you-done-for-me-lately sport. Rousey has been its biggest celebrity until her mystique-shattering loss to Holly Holm. Ever since, people are quick to discuss Rousey. However, occasionally a loss is exactly what a fighter needs to get back on track (*cough* Conor McGregor *cough*).
