really anyone with the ability of picking her off with strikes and using foot work
is that bechee?
Look whos laughing now! :icon_lol: Holm who you claimed has no power put Rousey to sleep. :icon_chee
So you think its that easy? Watch her early fights, her opponents tried that and got subbed for it.
I was right on everything I said.
And how do you pronounce her name, anyway? Someone explain it to me, please.
B-e-th-e - Beth. Right?
Where does Rogan get Bet-ch-e from?
Anybody can beat Lebraun just get the ball into the basket
none of her opponents had good footwork or competent use of reach
Portuguese pronunciation. Renzo is pronounced Henzo etc. Those Brazilians! They have different words for everything!
Oh this thread again.
This is Bethe's fight to lose, lots of circling and jabbing could ward off the inevitable for maybe a round or two though.
I think Holm would be the best opponent to try that gameplan out on Rousey, keep her at bay with jabs and quick low kicks while avoiding the clinch at all cost. Even then though there is a good chance Rousey eventually ties her opponent up and does what she does.
Someone with good striking and a killer TDD.
As far as the takedown defense goes, strength is a given. However, a good strafe or a sidestep out of her clinch like Machida used to do when he used strategy. I guess that requires quickness and excellent footing.
All that adds up to fighter that doesn't exist. I would say Cyborg but her grappling remains a mystery for the most part.
It's not very good, Carano had her back but just gave it up for some reason.
the portuguese have no problem pronouncing 't' and 'd'
It's gonna take a lot more than jabs, obliques, and circling. Holm lacks power, her fights look like a sparring session, and couldn't keep out of Pennington's clinch. Without better grappling to defend in the clinch or legit power the jab and run tactic simply won't work. Plus, Ronda has worked solid power punches and knees into her attack.
Ronda is big, strong, and athletic and packs serious heat in her right hand. It's not as simple as running away. You have to deal with her hands, knees, and sociopathic forward aggression-- Rousey is a predator always on the attack.
just train 1k times how to avoid the clinch so that baby
Yeah I'm aware, didn't say it would work just said that Holm has the best skillset to go for a gameplan like that, Ronda still eventually does her thing though.
holms 9-0 proves her lack of power to be irrelevant
since when does running away constitute as foot work
Yeah plus that Jackson-Wink MMA oblique based attack, that's their thing. Jesus even Reem uses them now.
Irrelevant against the fighters that she has faced, but Ronda, Tate and Zingano all wreck Holm IMO.
It takes the right circumstances.
Not literally running, guy. Constant circling out and sidestepping to avoid clinching.. Holm got clinched the fuck up badly by Pennington. Have you watched boxing? Clinching is beyond commonplace and Holm was no exception. Seeing that boxing is her vase discipline that is a huge hole to close. Holm is unimpressive as fuck and at her age with ~45 pro fights she's not getting any better.
