Theres no way in hell she wants to fight Holly again. That headkick fucked her up so bad.
That's a good theory on how to beat Ronda but how many fighters in the division can do what Holly did? Maybe Valentina or Nunes, assuming Ronda learned nothing about having the same game plan for every fight.
If you want to talk about being exposed, let's discuss Holly getting exposed as a 1 dimensional fighter who only looks effective when someone else is taking the lead. Let's discuss how Miesha's stand up got exposed AGAIN and how her sloppy take downs got exposed AGAIN. Let's discuss how many times Nunes's cardio has been exposed. Let's discuss how ridiculously 1 dimensional Pena is and how she's not a threat at all if she can't take someone down. Let's discuss how Cat still needs to get back in fight shape after sitting out for 14 months and how her stand up is still atrocious. Let's discuss how Valentina is too small for the the division and her ground game is questionable, as evidence by Nunes being able to lay on top of her at will.
All the talk about Ronda losing her passion for fighting as soon as she lost is nothing more than fantasy. I think she lost the passion for fighting long before that, hence all the talk about taking a long time off and wanting to retire soon and losing the way she did is what is going to help her find the passion again. The rest of what you said is just point blank dumb as fuck.
Mentally weak? Olympian's are the most mentally strong athletes in the world. You also can't be mentally weak and be a UFC champion and defend the title 6 times in any division, while being the face of wmma and really mma in general.
Champion's heart? She defended the title 6 times, never ducked anyone in the division and always looked to finish her opponents and not just ride comfortably to a decision. When she got hurt early in the 1st round against Holly, she kept coming and she never backed off and gave up. So she got knocked out. Big deal. Happens to almost every champion eventually.
Bully mentality? What the fuck does that even mean lol? These are trained adult fighters were talking about not some punk ass kids on a fuckin playground trying to impress their friends. People are trying to hurt each other for money and fame. Aren't they all trying to be bullies and impose their will on each other? They're not getting together to knit sweaters and enjoy a nice cup of hot chocolate.
One of the most well reasoned posts on RR and female bantamweight I have read. It is a darn shame for Valentina that there is not a 125 division. She is so fun to watch but just not a true 135lber.
Titleshot I don't think she can handle right now. She should fight a top-5 BW.
You can't be exposed to people without the appropriate skillset like Nunes, Pena, Shevchenko, Tate etc. Nunes might be a decent striker but she has no evasive movement to keep Rousey at bay.
She's never coming back and if she does for some reason she's never fighting Holly
The title. Although I feel she probably wants to avenge her loss to Holly directly as well, or so she says. When Holm was still the champion and getting set to defend it against Miesha, Ronda told the media she wanted Holly to win because she wanted to be the first one to beat her.
Still trying to have her man's babies.
What makes you think she's going to return?
If she does come back she wants Tate for the belt so if they think they can get away with it UFC will find a way to make that happen.
