That's what the UFC 193 weigh ins sparked yesterday (Fri., Nov. 13, 2015) when undefeated women's Bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey and No. 7-ranked challenger Holly Holm stood nose-to-nose on the stage inside Etihad Stadium in Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

"Rowdy" heads into her sixth straight title defense amid anger and chaos -- as she somewhat did prior to her last Octagon jaunt in August against Bethe Correia -- looking to expose "The Preacher's Daughter."
From her conversation with FOX Sports:
"Well, all I really noticed about her was at the staredowns and during the weigh ins, she likes to have her hand on the outside. So I just wanted to place my hand on the outside that was it and I could tell that she got really frustrated and didn't like that and actually put her fist on my face and I didn't think that was called for at all. All I wanted to do was have my hand to the outside and I was already frustrating her and I really felt like all that sweetness and respect leading up to this point was really fake and I saw it in that moment. I'm gonna show her what's up on Sunday; I'm done with all of this."
The 28-year-old mixed martial arts (MMA) dynamo couldn't be restrained by her boss, UFC President Dana White, but helps bolster a card with lofty goals already within reach.
Rousey is pegged to win by a landslide and has plans of disappearing to film a slew of movies in 2016 after dominating the likes of past title challengers Cat Zingano and Correia already in 2015.
Holm, meanwhile, is 2-0 in UFC and has a bright training staff behind her, Jackson-Winkeljohn MMA, as well as former pound-for-pound brute Jon Jones giving her nuggets of wisdom.
Also on the colossal card is a women's Strawweight title romp in the co-main event between 115-pound ruler Joanna Jedrzejczyk and No. 8-ranked Valerie Letourneau.
