The Stare Down

Don't let this rather peaceful stare down confuse you. Though this match up proves to be less "personal" and both fighters express mutual respect, there is nothing peaceful in what is about to unfold... It is worth noticing that Ronda is the first to break eye contact in this stare down... perhaps a sign of weakness?

Not a Quicky this time around

Actually according to our count this stare down was longer than Ronda's fight against Cat Zingano... But we bet this one isn't going to be that short.
