Tonight 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 exclusively told us their predictions on who they believe will win the fight.
Number 1 lightweight in the world
I’m going to go with Amanda on this, knowing Ronda has the skills to beat her if she sticks to her game. I think Amanda has been getting sharper and with her confidence going in as champ, she will be looking to hit hard and Ronda isn’t used to that. If Ronda comes in smart and clinches up and does her usual hip toss and arm bar we can be worried, but I’m assuming Amanda’s team has her ready for that war so I’m going with Amanda on this.
UFC strawweight, TUF 23 winner
I think Ronda will win via arm bar.
UFC strawweight, number 6 in the world
The fight is timing, and Amanda has a good time, she’s growing and she’s the champion, we need to respect a champion. But, Ronda is Ronda! She was incredible! I really do not know, but I believe in Amanda and the power of the Brazilian woman.
Invicta FC flyweight champion, Number 1 flyweight in the world
I’m betting on Amanda Nunes to win this one.
Invicta FC atomweight champion, Number 1 atomweight in the world
Ronda will win this fight.
UFC bantamweight, former title challenger
I think Amanda will win, even though Ronda has more hype as a fighter than Amanda, but I think now is Amanda’s best moment.
Number 2 heavyweight in the world
Ronda, 2nd round win via a vicious submission! “She’s back!” statements will be heard.
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!
I’m going with Amanda 2nd round TKO.
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.
Number 3 lightweight in the world
Ronda with an armbar in the first round. And the NEW! Armbar queen is back!
Top 5 middleweight fighter, former TNA pro-wrestler
I think that Ronda is going to show a lot of heart, but Amanda is going to win that fight.
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.
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.
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.
Invicta FC star, Top ten featherweight
I’m gonna go for Nunes.
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.
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.
