In the context of the thread it comes off as an insult. Perhaps I rushed to judgement here, but it seemed like instead of analyzing thoer weaknesses in the context of the match up, you chose to simply point out a flaw they both share. I apologize.

Jayelectra, is one of the few posters here I respect. He's very fair in his opinions and posts

Rousey's biggest weakness is striking, I don't know how anyone could list something before that. In every fight we've seen, Rousey has shown no interest in standing and trading whatsoever. Granted, that's because her bread and butter is her judo and ground game and she has yet to meet anyone that has been able to consistently stop her from taking them down. The fact remains though, that Rousey has horrible standup. Miesha's not much of a striker either but she's better than Rousey.

Seasonal, I like it.


And on topic, as far as this fight goes, I'll have to go with striking and elbow/upper arm/shoulder respectively.

I'd say that's Ronda's weakness. Ronda can't box with Tate

Tate's biggest weakness is her strength and ground game

She is but it hasn't mattered yet and it wont matter Saturday. Rousey subs Tate again. I think Tate will take her past the first though.

I agree I'm hoping for a longer fight than just 1 round. Hopefully some damage is occurred besides just an arm broken.
