    That's all it took? Really? Amanda was throwing 1,2's and shoving her off. That's all it took to take her out? Anyone that's ever watched an MMA fight could have done a better job coaching Ronda than the Turd. Terrible.

    Quit putting this on her trainer. He actually had decent advice for this fight while it lasted. He was telling Ronda to clinch and ahe didn't. It would have been more satisfying had Ronda actually attempted some judo and Nunes stuff it.
     
  7. Ronda was rocked, she could barely keep her feet let alone get a strong grip (and for some reason decided to throw a kick, not the best idea when your legs are wobbly), the writing was on the wall from the first punch, she has no survival instincts to speak of except for the infamous "panic wrestle" but that's hard to do when your chin is getting checked every half second

    Anyone on this forum could beat Pillowface. Just spam haymakers. She has no head movement so you're sure to land a KO punch on her weak fat chin.
     
  9. Is this what he was shouting through the cage or the gameplan beforehand?

    She has zero striking fundamentals. It looks like she has never trained footwork or head movement EVER. How is this possible? I've literally seen better progress by guys with one week of training.

    Through the cage. He was calling for head movement and for her to clinch.
     
  12. This should have been her gameplan from the outset but honestly it's hard to tell what it was, because she looked like a shot fighter, once she was tagged on the chin and wobbled a few seconds in all of that fire or whatever was left of it, just escaped her and she was like a little girl lost.

    Clinches don't just happen against a good fighter.

    It has to be set up, which requires enough of a grasp of footwork, head movement and feints to get inside without getting lit up.

    People aren't exaggerating about her lack on fundamentals. It's quite frankly shocking to see at the top level.

    ZERO head movement after all these years and after the Holm fight.

    She needs to retire or change camps. She has squandered five years of improved striking at a vital age to really get good. I would say the window has closed, but who knows.

    He can call for whatever he wants, but she won't do that if he doesn't teach her those things. Ronda never showed any head movement in her time training at Glendale. As for clinching, she was never afraid to take one to get there and never displayed any striking/feint setup. It could often work for women and lighter weights. However, it's the type of strategy that has been proven time and time again to fail once you face someone who can crack you with one shot or doesn't stand still in front of you.

    That first jab sealed the deal.
