    Sorry on mobile so can't post gifs or pics.

    Just rewatched Bethe vs Shayna and I noticed how Bethe stands so upright when stalking, still has her chin decently tucked, but upright none the less. And her being rather short compared to most the top 10 that's a bad habit to have IMO

    What I'm curious about is if this upright stance will aide or hinder Rondas judo in anyway?

    I know next to nothing about Judo so keep the burners turned down, Sherdog.

    i would prefer you posted gifs but the fact that you acknowledged it and explained why you couldnt, is enough for me to accept your apology

    The higher the hips, the easier to throw in general.

    Man she's going to get lit up like a christmas tree with sparklers in a room full of strobe lights. RR won't even need her ground game.

    Aside from the finish, nearly all of the fight, when standing, she was very upright.

    The fight is temporarily free on YouTube.

    Rousey doesn't slip and dodge too well either if you catch my drift.
