    She also just beat the shit outta a top fellow BW with ease so no but you’re still living off PEDerson who’s lost 9 fights in a row.

    Ronda couldn’t close the distance and get her down. Crazy because Tate did and choked her out.

    Was not insulting her, more commenting on the magnitude of the moment.

    Why so insecure?

    Yeah, Tate had better wrestling, Ronda never learned any of that, she could just Judo throw you.

    It may have been a glorious moment, but wmma was still more exciting with her around.....

    Following Holm’s career since the LFC, I had a strong feeling Holm would ruin Rousey (I also believed, and still believe, that Carano would have beaten Rousey in a similar fashion as well)...

    Still, I would be lying if I said that Holm’s awful fight against Pennington didn’t cause me to have my doubts...

    With that win, she also won endless title shots too apparently.

    Weird how he mentions PED's when half Silva's opponents tested positive pre-USADA and Holm is one of the most suspect fighters in WMMA with her absolutely shredded physique at 39 years of age among other things. Also his AV is mr. Gyno lol

    Still ronda was more exciting for women's division than it is now, it desperately needs a star. I loved ronda fights because I knew a finish was coming. Too many wmma decision fighters now.

    True. I hated the bullshit around Ronda (she can beat Tank or Cain under bla bla...).
    But at least I watched her fights - now I honestly don't give a shit about WMMA

    I have never failed to give a "like" every time I see the pic or GIF. I literally jumped out of my chair watching it that glorious night.
