Always like rocky. I hope she pulls this off but I don't like her chances.

Maybe Brian Kelleher vs Lineker if Brian can get cleared in time. He wants that fight and UFC 224 seems like the right place to do it.

I was going to gripe/piss/moan about other contenders. But when I looked at the rankings, the fight makes sense. No other viable contenders. Rocky is the best option barring a rematch with Holm. This division is shallow as all hell. Shevchenko you might argue has the title shot but she left the division. Right now, the queen of excuses has none.

If Amanda Nunes fights the same way she did against Schevchenko the second time then she is practically unbeatable.
