#2 Sara McMann vs. Amanda Nunes
This is a hard match to predict as it is not clear where they actually are in their respective MMA careers. McMann, who often shows good striking and offensive wrestling looks really horrible when someone takes the fight to her, while Nunes, who look like a world beater in initial rounds just fades quickly in later rounds and tends to lose the important fights.
I fully expect Nunes to take the fight to McMann, who will look to take the fight on the ground as early as possible. Nunes is very powerful and a good striker who likes to overwhelm her opponents with her ferocious approach. McMann’s game is more simple - take the fight on the ground and control the top position, strike only if you can't get the fight on the ground. Though picking McMann via a decision is logical here, I am still unsure on McMann and her ability to respond to her oppositions aggression, thus I'll pick Nunes for the upset.
