    Ronda looked bad, there is no doubt about that. She looked like someone who had no stand up training at all. And hating on Edmund has been the popular thing to do, even before the Holm fight but especially after.

    I can understand the premise... she was winning, the bad from the fights was ignored. But someone being this found out. From a guy like this . How is it possible that no one around the champion had some kind of a constructive input. In 2016, it's not like the Gracies era when everything was unknown. Is Edmund the biggest scam in MMA history ?

    Sadly, loyalty isn't always a good thing.

    I was listening to beat down after the bell, they said a lot of potential great were held back by poor coaching and loyalty, but they never make it to the top. Ronda had an amazing base of judo and Edmond leeched on to her

    She still has amazing Judo, but if she's going to continue being a professional fighter, she needs a coach who understands the importance of moving your fucking head off the centerline.

    Maybe it's Ronda. He's an awful coach regardless but I don't think she is particularly good at following instruction or a gameplan in the first place. She seems to fight on instinct.

    It's actually quite amazing how she dominated the division for a few years with essentially no coaching.
     
  13. Because Edmund isn't taken seriously in boxing outside of being connected to Vic Darchinyan so he thought he would take Ronda Rousey and teach her some boxing, but he woudn't teach her boxing, he would teach her how to be Mike Tyson, without the headmovement, power, speed, reflexes or raw talent, except she's not Mike Tyson she's a fucking Judoka, with raw core strength and grapping skills, he let her get way too carried away with the Correia knockout, feeding her delusion that she was a power puncher.

    She should have listened to her mother, even Nunez said Ronda could make a splash in the division if she used her strengths, but by now she's damaged goods, had people blowing smoke up her ass convincing her she was invincible since day one, it's hard to pick up your ego when it gets checked after that

    I mean, take a look at this



    Imagine how SHE feels after that kind of ass kissing??? Where will these people be now?? Well, we know the cliche of how this story turns out

    He is horrible, but Ronda deserves the Lioness' share of the blame
