Miesha Tate believes that she is mentally far stronger than Amanda Nunes and consequently can not see their fight ending in anything but a successful title defence.
Unless she scores an all-time great knockout or finish against seventh-ranked Valentina Shevchenko in a couple weeks at UFC Fight Night Chicago, Holm likely won't jump over Rousey for a shot at the title with a win.
Nunes tagged Tate with several punches to the head early in the first round. She bloodied Tate's face with a series of stiff jabs and overhand rights before taking her back on the ground and securing a rear-naked choke.
The bantamweight fighter said she trains with her girlfriend, UFC strawweight fighter Nina Ansaroff, who she fully expects to be the next out competitor to grab a title. I think she thinks she likes to get it, but I don't think she does.
Miesha Tate's reign as UFC women's bantamweight champions lasted just one fight.
Former Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) heavyweight champion and current World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) fighter, Brock Lesnar returns to the Octagon for the first time in nearly five years for a one-off fight on 9 July.
Pro wrestler Lesnar - returning to the sport where he won and lost the heavyweight title and was among UFC's biggest pay-per-view draws - earned his first mixed martial arts victory since July 2010.
UFC 200 is a done deal, and not only has Brock Lesnar returned to the win column, he's done so by defeating one of the most risky men on the planet...
Next in line could be the mouth-watering third fight with Rousey but that will fall to pieces if Nunes can upset the champion.
All three judges socred the Las Vegas fight 29-27 for Lesnar. Nunes also credits a lot of her development to training partner - and girlfriend - Nina Ansaroff, who fights in the UFC's women's strawweight division.
When asked if he would return to the octagon, Lesnar said he wasn't sure.
The defeat put an end to Edgar's five-fight win streak that stretches back to his previous defeat to Aldo in February 2013, which also was a unanimous decision.
