UFC 207: Nunes VS Rousey – See who fellow UFC and MMA stars think will win

This Friday UFC 207 takes place from the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada. The event will be headlined by a bantamweight championship bout between current champion Amanda “Lioness” Nunes (13-4-0), and the former champ who will be making her return after being brutally knocked out November 2015, “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey (12-1-0).

Female MMA stars have made predictions on who they believe will win the fight.


Killastina Makihele
Number 1 Welterweight in the world
I’m going to go with Rousey, for she has been training extra hard for this fight. I don’t like or care for her attitude much but she held the belt longer then anyone. I’m very excited for this fight and can’t wait to to see Rousey take her belt back.

Tatiana Suarez
UFC strawweight, TUF 23 winner
I think Ronda will win via arm bar.

Jennifer Maia
Invicta FC flyweight champion, Number 1 flyweight in the world
I’m betting on Amanda Nunes to win this one.

Ayaka Hamasaki
Invicta FC atomweight champion, Number 1 atomweight in the world
Ronda will win this fight.

Destanie Yarbrough
Number 2 heavyweight in the world
Ronda, 2nd round win via a vicious submission! “She’s back!” statements will be heard.

Erica Grover
Number 3 heavyweight in the world
My prediction for the Rousey VS Nunes fight is that Nunes will get the win. A large part of this sport is mental and mentally Rousey has been worked over. She’s hungry and wants to be vindicated so she could pull it off but ultimately I’m giving this one to Nunes. Either way it’ll be one hell of a fight!

Cortney Casey
UFC strawweight
I’m going with Amanda 2nd round TKO.

Jozette Cotton
Number 3 lightweight in the world
Ronda with an armbar in the first round. And the NEW! Armbar queen is back!

Brittney Elkin
Number 4 lightweight in the world
I want to say Rousey but I believe Nunes will be aggressive and either walk into a Ronda trap or beat the crap out of her… hmm… Nunes 2nd round TKO.

Katya Kavaleva
Kickboxing world champion, Blackzillians team member
I think in this particular fight Ronda has a huge huge burden on her shoulders a lot of people are doubting her because of the way she got beat last time. I think that she is fighting probably the second or third toughest female fighter in all of MMA. I think it’s going to be a very very difficult fight but I think if she can stick to her game plan I think that Ronda can beat her I think it’s going to be a phenomenal fight my prediction is that Ronda will win the fight second round submission.

Kola Shippentower
Top ten welterweight
For once I’m hoping Ronda wins, just so she’ll have to fight Cyborg but I think Amanda has got it. So TKO in the 2nd, Nunes.

Latoya Walker
Invicta FC star, Top ten featherweight
I’m gonna go for Nunes.

Gabrielle Holloway
Bellator star, Number 5 lightweight in the world
I’m excited to see Ronda back in action but I’m going with Amanda by unanimous decision.

Felicia Spencer
Invicta FC lightweight, number 9 lightweight in the world
I see Ronda winning, but really who knows? It is an interesting fight for sure. Ronda seems motivated.


7 votes for Ronda, 7 votes for Amanda. It seems fellow Pro MMA Fighters are split on who’s going to get the victory this week. The oddsmakers feel the same way, for the first time ever in Rousey’s UFC career she is less than the 2 to 1 favourite to win, there really is not much in it.

It could go either way according to the pros and the oddsmakers, but who do you think will win? Let us know in the comments below.
