MMA women - The big fight between Amanda Nunes and Holly Holm is taking place soon.  Place your bets! Amanda Nunes is undoubtedly the top female fighter in the world right now and is arguably the #2 pound-for-pound fighter in the world behind Jon Jones.

Holly Holm is facing the undisputed end boss of the division and is a significant underdog to win.

Sound familiar?

It wasn't that long ago when Holly Holm shocked the world after flattening then-Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey via a perfectly placed head kick.

Holly Holm will look to shock the world for a second time when she squares off against Amanda Nunes on Saturday night in the co-main event of UFC 239.

Amanda Nunes will try to do what she does best - put heavy leather on her opponent by utilizing her abnormally long reach. This is the reach that gave Cyborg and Rousey issues, and Nunes is hoping to use this combination of power and reach to floor Holm.

Holly Holm, however, is a very smart fighter that has one of the best camps in all of MMA on her side. There is no doubt that Holm will be well-prepared for this fight, and I wouldn't be surprised to see her utilize her kicks in order to try to keep Nunes off-balance.

Holm needs to survive the first round, as Nunes has a tendency of tiring out, while Holm has proven to be a cardio machine.
