As the OP says, could a Jackson-esque cornerman have delivered advice that could have changed the result? Edmund's idiotic 'you're doing great champ' just had Ronda doing more of the same. Lets look at it objectively; - Ronda would have trained cardio for at least 3 rounds, the fact that she was tired was due to bull charging and getting lit up, the tank wasn't empty and she could have recovered fine had she taken her foot off the gas for the first half of round 2 (that's under the condition that Holly wasn't able to pour it on as much as she was in Round 1). - Ronda had mild success in the clinch, her strength and raw power has shown its effectiveness in other fights, turn the fight dirty in the clinch with dirty boxing and heavy knees. - Ronda at one point had the back, this is something that keeps getting overlooked. Really had she not jumped on the armbar and just laid on the heavy GnP she might have been able to end the fight there. So with that in mind and how Ronda was at the end of round one, could a more competent coach have given advice that would have changed the result? With something along the lines of; 'Champ youre getting lit up out there, I need you to recover, stick and move, keep her away with the jab, sideways/lateral movement. When you're feeling it I need you to press when she throws, if she throws the kick or the cross, close the distance, clinch, throw heavy, get her down, set up the armbar and throw hard.' Not a Ronda fan, glad she lost, but there's that 'what if' there for me, wondering what you guys think.
