    I can't imagine she does any genuine non cooperative sparring. She looked a lot worse than she'd ever done before

    seriously is that it? all his fighters look like they dont spar at all . how can you adjust to unusual movement if all you do is follow patterns.

    pretty disgraceful coaching

    im serious though i dont think they bring in sparring partners it looks that way anyway.

    i honestly dont know what her coach is thinking. you can create a fighter from padwork.

    It's fucking embarrassing because there are so many good coaches in the Glendale area who aren't Edmund. I have been in the same gym as Ronda multiple times (not at GFC). She knows who the good coaches are and they would bend over backwards to train her. I don't fucking get it.

    Of course she does. I have it on good authority that she routinely drops world boxing champ with body shots.

    its mental. im speculating she doesnt spar but looking at her on the pads to the ring it looks like someone who cant translate from lack of sparring if any at all.

    youd have to be a complete arrogant ignorant moron as a coach to think you could give her the same sparring as other female professionals. even id he has her sparring men theyre going to go half arsed with her anyway.

    Her boxing is obnoxious, when getting hit in the face she extends both of her hands out.

    Edmond must have paid those boxing champs to act being KOed so that he can brainwash Rhonda and keep her.

    The way she held her chin sky high? That is a good question.

    Right before the fight I had this same conversation with a friends. I think it's clear she doesn't.

    From what I have seen all of her movements look to be from just hitting pads and not reacting to what a opponent will do. In her best striking efforts in the ring she just unleashed a fury of punches. Never set much up or moved well on the defensive .

    She didn't have the defensive technique or the mind set to reset or recover.

    When she came out her body language and they way she was holding her hands didn't look like she was even ready to engage, she got closer and was lit up while posing.

    On top of everything I think she was mentally shook!

    Its an ego thing. When you are "The best female in the world". It would be embarrassing for you to get pieced up in standup sparring by literally everyone. They are probably paid by Edmond to get beat up
