StrikeForce . . . Tate / Rousey
Sat., March 3, 2012, at 10 pm ET on Showtime
Prelims at 8pm ET on Showtime Extreme
Main card (Showtime):
Tate / Rousey -- ROUSEY --- ROUSEY by Submission - ARMBAR, BITCHES --- This was a very difficult pick for me. I WANT TATE TO WIN, but Rousey seems to have some very important items on her side -- Intimidation & ARMBAR.
Rousey needs to earn her stripes. I mean this, by time AND by playing in the big leagues. The Olympics is pretty big time, but Tate is better all around and has the biggest medal of all.
It's not going to be easy for Tate. This fight will be one of her toughest, trying to stay away from that gruesome arm bar.
I love love love watching Rousey's arm bar, but I think, if TATE stays focused and not get intimidated right away, she might escape and stay away from this horrible ending.
You all know how much I adore trash talk, HOWEVER, Rousey's trash talk needs some help!! She's not funny. She trash talks in a derogatory, twelve-yr-old kind of way, that makes me feel embarrassed for her.
In the beginning, I liked the way she was stepping up, being different and marketing herself and being incredible in front of a camera, but then she started getting popular. Power/popularity often hurts people who get it too fast. Rousey is dangerous.
Thomson / Noons -- THOMSON ---- THOMSON by Unanimous Decision --- not ONLY because he has a wonderful ass and beautiful face, geeeeeeesh
Daley / Misaki -- DALEY --- MISAKI by Split Decision --- He will destroy Misaki. Daley is a BEAST and he will not cave in ANY way.
Souza / Marunde -- SOUZA --- SOUZA by Sumission --- This fight is going to be FUN!!!
Smith / Sayers -- SAYERS --- SAYERS by Submission --- Guillotine Choke
