Maybe she's the badest women on the planet and will kick Nunes ass or maybe she is overrated.

The fact is that she is unproven so we don't know what she value. Maybe she has no striking like Roussey, maybe she has a glass chin like Pico, we don't know. kaufman is top 20 pound for pound so even if she gives the weight advantage, I favor her to win this.

I'm like, a month late... But. I had an idea that I couldn't ignore, or I'd forget for another month. 
Someone said they need to change the way the playoffs are scored. Which I do agree with. The 2 Rd deal is fine. The Rd 1 winner is the auto winner of any draw. ←That rule should go out the window. What if they instead did kinda what ONE does, and score the fight as a whole, instead of rounds... But only bring that into play, in the event of a draw. Does that make sense?

@Brad  I was moaning about the dumb scoring system! Having draws defeats the purpose of a tournament! I like your idea of using Pride scoring which judges the fight on a whole, much better than the 1st round winner wins! There were fights where a guy barely won the 1st clearly lost the 2nd and is judged winner? That's not right. I hope they've changed it

Harrison vs. Pacheco
Kayla Harrison, SUB, R1
Does Larissa Pachecco make for a better fight...... who the **** knows. Who knows who the **** these chicks are except for the 3 obvious women ppl heard of. Who ******* knows.

Cooper III vs. Kamaka
Ray Cooper III, TKO, R1
What a ******* crazy way to start the season. let's lock the cousins in the cage and see who KO's who 1st. My only wonder. Just how savage is Cooper? Ya know how tight family is in Hawaii, sooo will he NOT try to murder his cousin like he would someone else? that is what I wanna know?

Kaufman vs. Frier
Sarah Kaufman, SUB, R1
Again who the hell knows who these unknowns are... They're about to be the well known, unknowns

Fabian vs. Dalziel
Bobbi-Jo Dalziel, DEC
Some more of the finest most well known, unknowns.....

Fialho vs. Curtis
Chris Curtis, DEC
Other than Handesson vs. Bojan... THIS IS THE FIGHT you gotta watch. Both these guys can make things interesting this season..

All MMA fights should be scored as a whole not round by round. We'd avoid a lot of questionable decisions that way.

I really like the One rules all around , with scoring fight as a whole and kneeing the opponents on the ground...  but can’t have that obviously , but could score fight as a whole.
 But also, it kind of sucks that elbows are illegal, although with the quick turnaround these fighters have to make, I kind of understand. But still makes it seem kind of amateurish to me

That said, I really enjoyed the PFL last year, and thought it was a pretty big success. Maybe not viewership wise, because of being on NBCS.. hopefully it will do better on ESPN. 
But I think the more BIG legit organizations the better. For awhile the UFC looked like it was going to be the ONLY promotion that could lure good fighters, due to bigger $ and exposure they offer. 
But that’s not the case anymore... and I think it’s GREAT for the sport! Especially in order for it to be an actual Olympic sport in the next 20 years. Hopefully sooner.
