I met and spoke to Davis several times. She did express discontent when Rhonda got a strikeforce title fight over her. In her eyes it was only due to trash talk. This was years ago though and I don't remember who Ronda was fighting.

There are a few ladies still fighting today that have been around back then and quite frankly they should be happy that now because of Ronda (sort of), they're actually starting to get a proper pay even if it's still not champ money.
No need for resentment though that makes for good beef too . Take Baszler as an example, she clearly worded her pleasure on TUF of the wmma world finally getting exposure. I think for most of them it's bittersweet.
I do get your point though.
