    Part of her terms for this fight had to be minimal media -- she probably blames PR pretty hard for her lost to Holly -- She definelty focused on training hard and no distractions -- so that beatdown has to her hurt her ego and psyche about 100x worse than her face.

    Damn, i kind of feel bad for her -- that was the worst possible outcome; worse than a flash KO.

    Just bleed would be complaining about the division because of lack of KOs (what you are doing). Obviously different weight classes present different fights. A heavyweight fight is way different from bantamweight but to say the lighter guys are being less technical because the chance of being KOd is lower is crazy. They are very technical

    Did he leave that camp yet? I don't want to watch him fight again until he goes back to his old one

    I get that you are really reading into it for some reason, but I just don't give a shit about fights below 155 much

    Don't think so, maybe her shortly since the Ronda train is off the tracks

    Better question is how is Ed getting a license still?

    I think the promotion understands that too. You usually don't get those guys headlining ppvs, especially Johnson. I'm just saying your premise about the lack of KOs meaning they are somehow fighting reckless is silly.

    I wasn't commenting about recklessness, but if many of those manlets wanted they could go out and just rocky with little regard

    Some do. Swanson Choi just happened and there's farther back those Leonard Garcia fights. My point is those guys don't become champs from what I've seen. At heavyweight, you have a far likely chance going rocky and getting to the belt because like we mentioned, it's a different type of fight, different dangers / challenges etc.

    I said Cubson instead of Swanson. That made me laugh

    Pretty shocked Dom lost, and as badly as he did.

    Did not think Cody had the experience to figure Dom out. Very impressive. Excited for the TJ fight.

    I think she probably attributed the loss to distractions rather than massive technical flaws (head movement and footwork). On the one hand, she's young and talented enough to improve, but on the other she's a big star and established so I don't think it'll happen.

    Cody looked way better than I thought he would. Patient and intelligent in his approach. I thought he'd be catching air and gas, but he was brilliant. Happy to be wrong on that one (lost a little money, though) because we saw the emergence of a truly elite fighter.

    Made money on Dillashaw but lost money on Rousey. Shouldn't have made a second bet just to make one when I really wasn't sure about most of this card line wise. Dillashaw was the only thing that felt good especially for the line

    Why not Nunes? Line opened crazy, but IMO Nunes was undervalued to the end.

    I didn't really had an argument why she couldn't win. It didn't see how it would play out and just bet. I didn't want to bet on Cruz Gatbrandt and didn't like the undercard lines either. Should've just did one fight but did that one last minute

    Naw she's old in fighting years. Shes been competing at the highest levels of judo since a young teenager. Her knees, shoulders and elbows are shot. A while back on the JRE before her first loss Shaub said he couldn't see Ronda fighting for too much longer.

    Lost on Cruz and Lineker bets, but broke even from Nunes. TJ fought really smart and I totally underestimated how much a factor his wrestling would be in the fight. Cody surprised the hell out of me.
