    Let's do this. What the fuck happened?

    My vote - psychological damage...from the moment Holly touched Rondas cranium with that big toe she knew she didn't want to do this anymore, the reality of it is she forgot what it felt like to get hurt and that feeling came back about 5 seconds into her comeback fight.

    All of the above. Mentally broken by Holm, clearly not taught by Edmond, was always a one-dimensional judoka that only outstruck bummy non-strikers, and up against a solid, trained striker.

    She didn't get a tune-up fight first.

    She is being coached by someone who shaves his arms!

  9. Just not good enough.
    Ronda's 6 title defenses(Carmouche, Tate, McMann, Davis, Zingano, Bethe) and none of those women have the power and striking skills that Amanda has, Zingano the only one who is even on the same stratosphere.

    Women's mma has evolved.

    All of the above

    Coming off a devastating loss after having destroyed everyone else you faced, Edmond has absolutely no idea what he's doing, her striking isn't on Nunes' level, Nunes looked like a killer

    I'm a really big Ronda fan, but I've been seen this whole mentally broken thing and it kind of irks me. She came in in incredible shape, she just got tagged and rocked early by a knockout artist

    Holly stole Ronda's soul, never gave it back

    Nunes just performing janitorial duties

    If you notice the first left that landed hit her square in the nose an she simply was trying to deal with the pain and got punched another 22 times. Her composure went and she never recovered from that first punch.

    Y'know your basement? Well right underneath that.
    Ronda used to just bullrush, get the clinch and win. Holly denied her the clinch and beat her up, and made sure to hit her every time she bullrushed.

    Rousey didn't want to bullrush thinking she'd get caught like what she did by Holly, failing to realise that Nunes was the sort of opponent she could have absolutely rushed in on. There was no reason that Rousey couldn't have won that fight, but her shit coach, and being shaken up from her last loss contributed to her losing this one.

    You should have made the poll so that multiple choices can be selected.

    A combination of

    1. Poor mental state

    2. Poor training

    3. Amanda being a better fighter

    I have a feeling that if this fight happened in 2014 or 15 Ronda would have won simply because of her aura. It matters a lot. Nunes would have walked into the fight scared, messed up her gameplan and done something wrong and lost.

    If the Zingano fight happened today she would finish her with ease.

    Your first paragraph is true. Your second paragraph is shit. Ronda grabbed onto nunes and was shrugged off once and attempted to clinch a couple other times. The only way she was winning that fight was by learning to shoot. Not everyone will let you grab them.
