So Miesha Tate and Julia Budd let their elbows get destroyed for a bonus check? How about Davis? Did she fake getting knocked out?

Let's just forget that.
6'1, 210lb male judo black belt vs 5'6, 155lb female judo black belt. Hmm. I wonder who will have the advantage.

Right. Fighters only take dives in the UFC. Nowhere else.

Don't even bother. Save it up for when Ronda demolishes Cris Cyborg and the "Cyborg took a dive" people come out in droves.

no, i didn't say that ... im saying the ufc is getting shadier and shadier imo .. they are hurting and doing stupid things ... i wouldn't put it past them to fix fights ... so they can build up fighters ... i just don't see why they are building up rousey .. she could be a draw, but she's not going to draw huge numbers they need .. but if she loses, they are screwed

Maybe it would have had she not been brain crushed by a temple shot.

You know that will be the first response if Ronda finishes Cyborg. Along with Cyborg being overrated and never that good.

How is Rousey not a draw? She's probably more popular than many of the champs put together.

Alexis said her Jitz would counter Rousey's throws or submission attempts. Said she's not the type of fighter that can be like Chael and just shows her talents through her fighting. Her fighting to me is just like her personality not that exciting.

Cupcake Miesha Tate said she'd already fought Rousey once. Nothing surprises her. Said she improved on her judo etc., She also said something along the lines of mentally Rousey was broken and that would affect her fighting. In the fight it seemed like Tate didn't even know how to move. Mentally broken not sure about that must have been thinking about herself there.
You aren't reporting some of that very faithfully.
