    Both were extremely cocky before the said fights and had an aura of invincibility about them. I think JJ acted even worse than Ronda pre fight but Ronda definitely reacted worse to the loss. What you think sherbros?

    Ronda went from finishing everyone in round 1 with quickness to getting completely outclassed.

    JJ didn't have the same level of dominance against her peers prior to the fight, and wasn't as completely outclassed.

    Pretty easily Ronda. Higher peak. Lower valley. Greater fall.

    Ronda by far. Biggest hype job in MMA history.

    Ronda. Joanna got tagged and went down, sure, but Ronda went from "best ever, beating UFC heavyweights and anyone in boxing" to "how could they sanction a fight between a trained professional and someone who has never put on gloves in her life."

    Ronda was a 1M+ PPV drawing hype machine who got KOed in the main event in front of 55000 people.

    JJ got merked in the 1st of 3 title fights that had some decent hype in a smaller arena (albeit more famous).

    I think it's Ronda and it's not particularly close

    Definitely Honda. Epic fall from grace. And then just when you thought she had hit rock bottom, along comes Nunes to move the bottom even lower for her.

    Joanna has made 100x more excuses, but part of that is Ronda won't allow anyone to ask her about her losses. Ronda's image took a massive hit that wiped out her championship, undefeated record, and Hollywood career.

    Joanna, She tapped to strikes, Ronda bang to death. fact.

    Also, Rose doensn´t even sweat to beat the crap out of Joanna.

    People who said Ronda are just haters.

    Joanna, at least Ronda fought to the bitter end and didn’t tap to strikes.

    Ronda got her head kicked off.

    As obnoxious as Joanna can be, Ronda was worse. She seems to be humbled now though. Getting KTFO can do that.

    JJ might've been more disrespectful (even though that could be debated), but the main difference is JJ's talk seems fake as fuck, Ronda seemed like a legit bully and evil person. So in that regard Ronda's loss was more embarrassing.

    Also: Joe Rogan.

    My initial though was JJ because she got outstruck by a BJJ specialist, knocked down twice and tapped to strikes. That was Rose's first TKO, even if it should have been a submission. Ronda outworked by the fighter with probably the best footwork in the division and KO'd via head kick from a person who's known to KO people with kicks. I can see the argument for higher peak and lower valley, though.

    As it stands right now, though, JJ's loss to Rose is sort of like GSP's loss to Serra. People that were giving the underdogs a chance thought they'd have to get it to the mat and win via submission. Both fights end with a first round TKO and the favorite tapping to strikes. That's pretty embarrassing.

    Boggiewoman bullshit is 1000 times more ridiculous, embarrassing and cringeworthy than anything Ronda has ever done. Plus she tapped to strikes.

    Plus Ronda could be hot under the right lights.

    I love all 3 Kos, Holly, Amanda and THUG ROSE.

    (Whatever, WMMA sucks).

    With the hype surrounding Ronda. It’s not even close.

    How is this even a question ?

    JJ/Rose was a somewhat competitive fight. Ronda got beat down from the opening bell to getting KO'ed, and she looked like a complete amateur. And Holly Holm's not even that good. Ronda's loss was far more embarrassing.

    One of them showed up at the presser afterwards. The other hid behind a purple pillow...

    You tell me.

    I don't see anything embarrassing at neither scenario. It's not easy to fall from top to the gutter. Both fighters are legends, real champions with defenses and should have way more respect.
