UFC 184 Preview and Predictions: Rousey vs. Zingano Highlight WBC Bout At Staples


[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]With UFC 184 this weekend, live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, Hollywood and MMA fans are in for a real treat.

Headlining the UFC Women’s Bantamweight Championship is current champion Ronda Rousey and top contender Cat Zingano. Rousey has become one of the most marketable athletes in the entire sports world. She is the female version of a young Mike Tyson.

A fighter who dominates every person who gets in her way. She has never lost as her records stands at 10–0, with only one of those fights getting out of the first round. She has finished all ten fights by either arm bar submission or knockout, she is widely considered one of the most dominant athletes of the 21st century.

Look for her to continue this dominance with another quick win over Cat Zigano. Despite the 9–0 record of Zigano, she still doesn’t match up well with Rousey. Zigano will provide a tough challenge, but this reporter sees it being only a matter of time before she is tapping out with her arm stretched flat out.

The lack of competition Zigano has had will not help her cause as well, her only opponent of name value as been Miesha Tate. A woman Rousey disposed of twice with no issues.

The main card will also feature a bout between highly-touted newcomer Holly Holm and Raquel Pennington. This match was originally booked for UFC 181 and ultimately scrapped due to Holm being injured.

Holm may be a newcomer to the UFC, but not too the sport as she brings in a record of 33-2-3, and also has a long background in pro boxing. Look for Holm to destroy Pennington, who is only 5–4 in MMA, and 1-1 in the UFC.

In another fight that will more than likely come with a quick knockout, look for Josh Koscheck and Jake Ellenberger to provide highlights with some furious action. Both men are coming off of a three fight losing streak and desperate for a win, a loss to either one may seem them getting cut by Dana White and the UFC.

Both men can hit hard and have never shown the ability to get out of the way of hard punches either. It pains me to say this as a huge Josh Koscheck fan, but I believe the sun is setting on his career and I look for Ellenberger to end it early and violently.

It should be a night packed with highlights and lights out!

Until next time fight fans! No Blood : No Foul[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
