    I give MMA fans more credit --- the dimebag fans are in the majority. Watching Cyborg smash girls with a quarter of the skill would still put asses in the seats.

    how about pay her six figures for the Rousey fight, and if she loses, she gets peanuts. If she wins she earns a bit more. If she keeps her streak alive outside the UFC, pretty soon Dana may decide it's worth it if the UFC can't find better challengers. Personally I think Sara was robbed of a chance to recover and maybe even upset Rousey. The first girl who can keep the fight standing and crack a little will beat Rousey.

    and then what? continue to pay her 6 figures to not fight for the title?

    heres Winklejohn (her coach on the situation)

    As Holly Holm looks to extend her professional MMA record to 6-0 Friday night, the question remains just how far "The Preacher's Daughter" is from fighting in the UFC.

    According to her long-time coach Mike Winkeljohn, the UFC has already offered her a deal.

    "We have talked to the UFC a few times already," Winkeljohn told MMAFighting.com. "We're just a little far apart on making the deal. We're just waiting for the UFC to make the right deal, and we're ready to go."
    and then her manager:

    hen speaking with Sherdog.com, Holm’s manager, Lenny Fresquez, was an open book when it came to his client’s sought-after UFC contract, which includes a six-figure deal and a title shot against Ronda Rousey.

    We’re just waiting for them to give us the right opportunity to fight Ronda Rousey because we want a title fight. We want to fight the best UFC fighter. …We’re looking for six figures, and there’s not too many fighters in the UFC that make six figures. Right now, Holly has probably earned more than about 80-percent of the male fighters in the UFC and probably earned more than 98-percent of the female fighters
    .
    lets all put up a show of hands who thinks Holm deserves 6 figures and a title shot right out the gate.....

    Exactly. Cyborg is not marketable for him.

    If Gina Carano woke up tomorrow and said "you know what? I wanna fight Rousey". We'd be hearing how great she is and what a threat she is to Rousey lol.

I'm not interested in a Tate rematch, McMann rematch, or a friggin Carmouche rematch. Zingano won't last a round with Rousey and neither will Davis. lets get real here.

    I heard that now GSP is out of the picture, Silva wants a super fight with Rousey.
