    Scary as fuck. She throws down like a man.

    I seriously don't know how she ever lost to Cat Zingano but she moves like a man.

    In fact, she looking like a bantamweight Vitor Belfort with that hair cut.

    Holy crap what a beast. Ronda about to get KOed with the quickness.

    I have been in the boxing gym for a long long time and seen people come and go and I have never seen a women hit the pads like that. That's a man baby.
     
  2. The greatest bet I ever made was Nunes vs Tate. I couldn't believe how big of an underdog she was.

    She gets sloppy like a man too...that's how she lost to Cat and almost lost to gun-tattoo.

    I just posted in the embedded vlog thread saying that Nunes is looking sharp on the mitts. Especially the snap on her high kick. For a woman fighter, its rare to see that type of coordination...(I say without sounding male chauvinistic)

    To me this one comes down to fight IQ. Ronda is not someone that you rush and clinch with. Still can't believe how dumb Miesha fought in her last fight with Ronda.

    She lost to Zingano because Cat was able to survive the early onslaught. That's the thing about Nunes, she is scary as fuck for the first round but if she can't get the finish she slows down a lot and has trouble staying in the fight.

    That was so frustrating to watch, Miesha would do well in a striking exchange then shoot for a takedown and get completely manhandled.

    I remember the exchanges being super sloppy where neither did to much followed by miesha trying a take down only to get tossed

    Same goes for Ronda as well. It's like 2 unstoppable forces colliding. Ronda is probably more athletic and has the judo throws and Nunes is the more natural striker.

    It will be a fun fight for the 1 or 2 minutes it lasts

    Ronda will wreck Nunes and I dislike Ronda strongly

    Nunes's striking is seriously overrated

    Clinch. Arm bar. 1st Round

    Hurts me to say it but its true

    Spars, talks, looks, dresses and most likely wishes she was a man.

    It was. But Tate was still doing well during those exchanges. Honestly it seemed like she at least had a 50/50 chance on the feet with how it was playing out. But she kept trying to take Ronda down and was clearly losing that aspect but kept pushing it.

    Best striker in Wmma. Scariest finisher next to Cyborg.
