    We all know ronda hasn't had a father figure for most of her life. She has also stayed with Edmond following her loss to Holly who is one of the worst cornermen/coaches ever.

    Could her reluctance to leave edmond be due to him being like a father she never had?

    Discuss.

    Edmond is a figure head, if ronda loses shes got an excuse she never trained in a proper camp. If she wins its amazing because she did it with out a proper camp. Win Win situation for her.

    You could be right TS. She's emotionally fragile, and one way or another, Edmond has her sold on him hook, line and sinker.

    She isn't with him for his looks or his quality of training / cornering.

    She has only one loss training under him. I don't think he is doing that bad.

    She had a father. He passed away 1995. Ronda is born 87.

    Stay classy, Sherdog.

    It's this. My guess is it's less Edmund's fault and more of an incredibly demanding schedule that lead to the loss of Holly. Problem now is that her psyche could be permanently damaged so we'll never know.

    looks like the type of dude who keeps Ronda's sister chained to a bed somewhere Yerevan in order to get Ronda to succumb to his will.

    I would love to hear the opinion of a psychologist or someone like Robin Black, because I think there's some truth to this.

    Father figure/Cult leader. Whats really odd is she damn near begged to train with him and he rejected her many times until he found out how popular she was becoming.

    How does someone as proud as Ronda let another man treat her like shit, then come running to him at the drop of a hat. That really is like some mind control, peer pressure bull shit.

    Some Need to Keep some things Private...so sometimes we need to keep SomeOne closer than others. Dump Edmund and???
    Who Knows what private shit becomes public........... HE is not known as a standup dude..

    De Mars holds more credibility than the average mom, of course, considering she’s a former world champion in Judo and presumably understands what makes a great MMA coach and what doesn’t.

    "The difference between me and these other fighters’ moms is that I actually was a world champion," De Mars told Submission Radio. "So when someone is talking about coaching I know if it’s bulls— and this guy is a complete fraud. It didn’t surprise me for a second. I don’t claim to know everything but I know what it takes to win a world championship."

    Among other things, De Mars say she hopes Tarverdyan "loses his license or goes to jail, because either of those is a possibility."

    On a visit with Submission Radio, De Mars went off on Tarverdyan and said she wasn’t surprised at all that Rousey got knocked out by Holly Holm. She actually predicted it.


    "I predicted it in advance," De Mars said of the Holm knockout. "Ronda trained with an idiot. She trained with an idiot and a fraud

    She is tired of the 24/7 training and criticism her Mom use to beat judo into her over the years. She is too weak to pick a coach that will truly train her to learn something new and tell her when she stinks at something.

    Also what y'all are saying about Edmundo's Charles Manson thing. She isn't comfortable with herself so she chose a gym that wasn't comfortable with her at first. If you hate yourself, you can't accept being loved.
