Ronda Rousey vs Gina Carano UFC Fight prediction

Gina Carano is rumored to be competing against Ronda Rousey in the UFC, and that is definitely a massive money-making adventure for the organization. Rousey is a big draw, has made her way into mainstream consciousness, as as Carano. Both are beautiful and talented fighters. One element which does not add  more spice to the equation is there is no heat between them, they have intense respect for one another.

Striking-wise Carano would have an edge on paper, being a Muay Thai kickboxer in the past and having stand up as her bread and butter. But Rousey has improved her boxing vastly and her knees to the body have become a very strong tool.

On the ground it is a big edge to Rousey, who is able to toss and tap every one of her opponents, save Sara McMann, who was TKO'd via a knee in just over a minute.

This fight would be  tough one for Gina in any circumstance, but coming off a layoff makes it all the more difficult. Carano can outpoint Rousey on the feet, but will have a hard time finishing her in that realm of the game. Which means ultimately Rousey will likely get a judo throw and transition into her strong suit - the armbar, and get the W from there.
