Holly Holms vs Ronda Rousey is not PPV Worthy

UFC could of had the biggest fight to start next year if they somehow agreed to book bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey to a fight with Invicta's Cris "Cyborg" Justino.  But nooo, the UFC is scared of Justino so they went with a boring fight in matching Rousey with former boxer Holly Holms.  Look, Holms may be 9-0 in her MMA career, but she's still raw and has no ground game.  Rousey will finish her with a submission in less than a minute.  Remember at UFC 118 when Randy Couture embarrassed James Toney?  Couture got Toney to the ground easily and made sure Toney couldn't get up nor land a single punch.
An agreement to a catchweight 140 lb non-title fight is all it would take to have the best female MMA fighters compete for superiority rights.  But UFC wanted to stand firm at 135, even though Rousey has fought at 145 initially before she moved down to 135.  I guess Dana White wants to protect Rousey.  He said there's no featherweight division because there's not enough depth.  The bantamweight division isn't going anywhere either if Rousey is finishing everyone off in less than a minute.  Rousey is on a whole another level compared to her peers and Justino is the only fighter out there that can match her skill level.
