If Gina Carano vs Ronda Rousey is ever going to happen it needs to happen this year. The reason being is that both ladies have been getting a whole lot of media attentions lately so the timing would be perfect. They have already been making big waves so together they would create a tsunami. The fight would without a doubt be the biggest women’s MMA event to date and draw in tons of viewers. But as we haven’t heard any serious talks on the subject and seeing how Gina Carano is still unsure whether or not she will ever fight again, fight fans can only dream and speculate on who would win if they fought.
Fantasy Fight Predictions: Gina “Conviction” Carano vs Ronda “Rowdy” Rousey
This fight would be a classic striker (Carano) vs submission artist (Rousey). Gina would want to keep the fight standing up and try to keep Ronda at bay with long kicks and punches. Although Gina has a Muay Thai background, knees and elbows would be risky strikes as it would increase the chances of her getting taken down as Ronda prefers to keep the fight close so that she can take her opponents down. Ronda showed slightly improved striking in her fight against Meisha Tate but I still give the stand up advantage to Carano.
Each time Gina gets taken down by Ronda her chances of losing increases by around 33% as Rousey only needs 2-3 submission attempts to finish of an opponent. Now that she is training with the Diaz brothers Ronda will be even more dangerous on the floor. This fight most likely wouldn’t last 2 rounds and end either by a KO via Carano or a submission by Rousey. I would have to go with Rousey to win via submission as she has just been plowing through opponents. Gina has taken too much time off fighting for me to give her the benefit of the doubt.
