    Damn, hated myself for saying that (considering how bad I wanted to see her lose), but Mr. Clean was right. Honda sells tickets. Her psychotic episodes and balls to the wall, fight attitude....really was exciting. WMMA was fun to watch with Honda dominating. Now it's just taking turns for holding the belt.

    I think that's why Cyborg didn't say much about the 135 belt after her UFC debut....Mr. Clean paid her some decent money to stay in Invicta forever and STFU in order to sooth Honda's fragile nerves so she'd squeeze back in for the future ticket sales.

    Honda was the best thing that happened to WMMA

    Im serious

    Wanting her to lose so badly made that division exciting

    I agree. I want to see more of Cyborg too.

    Ronda will hold the title by 2017.

    Ronda forgives you. It was inevitable.

    Ronda lost her aurora of invincibility, she's less marketable and mentally stable because of it

    We won't see her back

    Nobody can force her into the cage. I don't think it's a matter of convincing anyone except Ronda herself.

    You are right, the angry bitter teenage angst personality sells PPV's and creates a buzz around WMMA.

    She is a dominating fighter if she stops listening to her coaches, she could hold the belt again if she cut that weight and came back focused.

    Very polarizing figures always help sell fights.

    I want a Ronda reality show about her life with Hapa. Birhing his babies and shit. I'd be like going to the trailer park and peeping through the windows.

    Yeah Rousey losing and no longer fighting was always going to be very detrimental to WBW. Holm, Tate, etc. are just not compelling enough fighters to maintain what she started.

    I think its's pretty clear if Ronda took her time and didn't bum rush Holly she would have a good chance of winning. Her ground game is better then everyone she's faced and her takedown defense is horrible. I'd rather watch Ronda smash contenders in a minute then watch the title change hands a million times and they call it "a stacked competitive division".

    Basic assholes with basic attitudes, masquerading as complexity sell well to the basic masses of assholes that need to live vicariously through others, because they are watchers, not doers. There are some exceptions, but that is pretty much how it is.

    That $9.0 mil Ronda earned last year makes your trailer park scenario pretty unlikely
