    Default Knapp predicts Cris Cyborg fights Ronda Rousey in 2014

    http://www.mixedmartialarts.com/news...ousey-in-2014/

    Ronda Rousey has said she wants to keep busy in 2014, and she is, taking a fight with Olympic medalist in wrestling Sara McMann less than two months after a punishing title defense vs. Miesha Tate. Next in line after McMann is Cat Zingano, who was in line for a title shot before a knee injury forced her replacement by Tate.

    And if Invicta FC founder knows anything - and she knows more about women's MMA than anyone alive - the fight after that could be Cris 'Cyborg' Justinho.

    The new TUF strawweight show will break all the former TUF show records. @criscyborg will drop to 135lb & challenge Ronda.

    I don;t see it happening this year at all maybe in 2015 but even that's doubtful.

    They already have 2 names for Ronda to fight and I doubt she fights more then twice this year. Let alone the whole Cyborg not dropping to 135 debate

    Besides the source on this is also predicting the womens 115 tuf will set viewership records which shows she's pretty out of touch on things.

    I dont think that claim is too far out of touch. The female fights on last seasons TUF had much higher viewership ratings.. As well, you will have a few girls on the next season who love to play it up for the media and use their sex appeal to get the male viewers to tune in, such as, Felice and Carla.

    Yes the women outdrew the man this year... but they did so on a season that drew record low numbers for viewership. Episode 9 pulled in the worst numbers ever for a TUF show and that was a night there was a women's fight. In comparison to the TUF 17 season they averaged a about 450, 000 less viewers over the course of the season. The number of viewers jumped about 100-125k on the nights women were fighting but they still never topped the the 1 million viewer mark which TUF 17 did every night. and they still underperformed compared to TUF 16 as well.

    I just don't see a full season of women's matches topping some of the better season's of TUF much less fixing all the things that TUF has working against it at this point. The novelty of a few cute girls will pull in some viewers to but not a sustainable amount that will watch over the course of the season and they've already used up some of that novelty effect with TUF 18. You'll probably get a few more women that watch the show throughout the season that will offset the number of men that don't watch for various reasons. (And the women watching instead will actually be a downside to the lost male viewership)
