Daniel Cormier, Kenny Florian and Miesha Tate made their predictions for Amanda Nunes vs. Ronda Rousey on the latest “UFC Tonight”, and there was not a consensus opinion.

The three were asked to weigh-in on the bout, which will headline UFC 207 tomorrow night in Las Vegas, Nevada. Cormier and Florian believe Rousey is going to reclaim the 135 title, while Tate predicts Nunes will defeat her longtime rival. Here is some of what they had to say about the fight (quotes via FOX Sports 1 press release):

Cormier: “Nunes is very tough. Nunes is a skilled and dynamic striker, but in a transition, Ronda will catch an arm and get the submission.”

Tate: “I fought both of them. I’ve never been hit so hard in my career as I was by Nunes. It just takes one right hand to rattle anyone. I’m going with Amanda.”

Florian: “Because Nunes gets tired in fights and she hasn’t been in a fight this big, I’m going with Rousey.”
