    She doesn't seem to have any striking to speak of. Not even a top-15 fighter, IMO.

    She was really, really bad.

    Didn't she start training at 28 with no kind of athletic background in anything?

    She was the women's CM Punk except she got a title shot.

    Ronda's skills are downgrading as she trains with Edmond. I'm sure if you give Ronda two more years in that gym, Bethe would most likely KO her inside one round. Next thing he'll tell her she's an amazing capoeira kicker and she'll try that and KO herself trying one of those.

    Bethe isn't bad. Not great.

    She got beat by the moment and the knee to the body Ronda hit her with is what put her out. The punches just finished it off.

    It's not even close.
    Esparza is not a good fighter but she has a wrestling background... Correia is just a chick who started going to the gym past 25 because she was fat.

  15. Bethe Correia was Edmond's meal ticket. Before that fight Ronda always went with her Judo first. Then she punched out an accountant and the grappler transformed into a KO artist. Edmond's training was justified and Ronda was a believer.

    like terrible, her hand eye coordination was so f-level she jumped as high as she could (4"?) to avoid a cable she thought was a hurdle.

    Let's be honest here. Ronda's striking wasn't the best back then. She even got hit by Bethe multiple times. But, she wasnt nearly as bad as she is now. LOL. Her confidence got destroyed, the division stopped fearing her, and they figured her out

    Super slow and someone who takes pride in acting like an idiot all the time. Holly and Amanda train at real camps and showed the difference
