Say what you will about Ronda, but she’s doing something incredible with her current situation.
No other fight in the women’s BW division (short of Cristiano Justino dropping and getting signed to the UFC) is going to generate any interest in the casual fan, if she were playing the face.

I’m super stoked for the McMann fight, but your average deep-v-wearing Brock Lesnar fan won’t give two shits unless the other chick is hot.
