Ronda Rousey Will Continue Her Dominance Against Alexis Davis at UFC 175

No women's competitor in the world can beat Ronda Rousey.

Not even Alexis Davis, Rousey's opponent at UFC 175. Rousey-Davis will co-headline the event along with the bout between Chris Weidman and Lyoto Machida. For those looking for a back-and-forth contest from Rousey and Davis, you'll be left wanting more by the time the match is over.

Rousey is going to dominate.

It appears as if she's already attempting to intimidate Davis, as pointed out by Damon Martin of UFC.com:

Rousey's latest display of perfection came at UFC 170 against Olympic medalist Sara McMann. McMann was dismantled in just 66 seconds, and Rousey remained undefeated in her career.

Davis has been on quite the roll lately, though. She has five consecutive victories under her belt, three of which have come within the Octagon. The jiu-jitsu black belt will certainly be looking to upset the champion, but her chances of doing so are slim.

Who will win?

Rousey simply excels in nearly every aspect of fighting. While her strengths come on the ground, she has become a much better stand-up fighter recently. Her improvements in the gym translated to success in the cage, as evidenced by her match against McMann.

While Rousey will certainly look to execute on her feet, she will inevitably look to get Davis on the ground at some point early in the match. This is her bread and butter, as the only woman who can match her grappling skills is McMann, an Olympic wrestler.

Rousey is also superior in terms of athleticism. Also an Olympic athlete, Rousey has competed at the highest possible level. You don't get there on skill alone. Olympic athletes are truly gifted.

By comparison, Davis is a more technically sound fighter. She doesn't rely on athleticism, but rather on well-timed strikes and combinations to do damage. Against most other fighters, this strategy would be successful.

It won't be against Rousey.

Despite her underdog status, Davis will look to have fun during the match. This will be a big opportunity for her to showcase her talents, but she isn't letting the pressure get to her, via Kevin Iole of Yahoo Sports:

"Just because now I'm fighting for the title and facing a very popular and high-visibility opponent, I didn't want to lose sight of the fact that I got into this sport for fun and I did what I have done because I love it."

Having fun and being loose might help her start off strong against the champion, but it won't help her in the end. Rousey is too well-rounded as a fighter to lose at UFC 175. She is physically superior to nearly all competitors in the women's portion of UFC, and that will work to her advantage.

I think Rousey wins this fight quickly, possibly in the first round.
