    I don't know if he was kicked out but he left on bad terms anyway.

    Worth noting that Pat Barry has blamed the stress he has put on Rose via his substance abuse problems for every less-than-great performance Rose has had in the UFC. With Pat having finally cleaned up his act with respect to substance abuse, and taking that mental stress off of Rose, we may see a much more mentally-on-game Rose than we've ever seen before!

    3 or so months of training over 2 training camps isn't going to make up for 10 years of training & experience at the world championship level. It helps a lot and it's probably the best training she can get, but it's not enough, not even close. You do not make up many years worth of battle tested skills & experience in a year of training camps.

    Put it this way, in Muay Thai the fighters spend an hour or 2 every day just training the clinch. Joanna's been doing that for around 10 years, for Valentina it's probably 20. Rose would literally have to spend 10 hours a day just clinching to catch up with JJ in that department, and that still doesn't give her the live fight experience that Joanna has from dozens of fights at the highest levels.

    It can play a big factor, but being a great fighter / the superior fighter can be more than just experience my friend.

    Just speaking generally here, but some people are born to be great. There are things that all the experience In the world cannot teach.

    way too much of an oversimplification, sorry.

    and also, the girl's been training martial arts since she was 5. Has 2 black belt and Is a solid brown belt In jits. Let's not pretend that Isn't experience.

    Remeber she doesn't have experience fighting vs someone with reach advantage. I don't think she fought oponnent bigger than her.

    Rose is not a transcendental talent like Jon Jones or Pride Shogun. Seriously. Stop. She's not "once in a lifetime".

    I pretty clearly said "speaking generally here" It wasn't directed at rose.

    Just trying to say that, experience Isn't always everything.

    I know I am a bastard, but I hope JJ fucking demolishes Rose because Rose was fucking hot until she got that stupid River Phoenix haircut and it makes her look like a butch-bo..

    They should make bet.
    JJ wins: Rose back to previous haircut.
    JJ lost: Whatever. I don't have ideas.

    The only way I see Rose winning is by rolling leg lock. Rose is a tough chick but she can't strike with JJ and she isn't going to be able to take her down. She needs to go for broke in this fight....

    I anticipate Rose diving face first into some strawberry pie.

    I actually hope Rose wins because she is more exciting and likeable than Joanna.

    JJ wins and then immediately fights the TUF winner at 125 and wins that belt too.

    I believe this'll be Joanna's easiest title defense.
