    Miesha Tate a former Strikeforce champion.
    Alexis Davis holds a black belt in JJ and BJJ.
    Sarah Kaufman former Strikeforce champion.
    Sara Mcmann silver medalist at the Olympics in wrestling.
    Cat Zingano won big named BJJ tournaments like the Mundials and was undefeated coming to her fight with Ronda.
    Liz Carmouche a former Marine who is most likely mentally tougher then anyone she has ever faced.
    ect. I think it's unfair to discredit Ronda she's one of the best fighters with one of the best work ethics.

    So having a couple of achievement suddenly makes you skilled? People have eyes, you know, when they see Ronda sloppily fighting a girl who does nothing correct at all, they might conclude that they aren't good. And it doesn't matter if they have "a record".

    The fight knowledge and prowess that we've witnessed clearly isn't manifesting in W"MMA" "fights".

    Strikeforce had no competition
    Black belts are not created equal
    Women's wrestling is not a high level sport, and has been dominated by 3 Japanese women in the last decade over 3 weight classes. Female wrestlers are irrelevant unless if your name is Kaori Ichio or something.
    Women's BJJ isn't a high level sport. Case in point: Mackenzie Dern. Highly decorated BJJ blackbelt, horrible athlete.
    There's this Zangief looking mofo who's working for MMAFighting who was a former marine. That doesn't mean anything

    It's ok, you're just some dummy who has no argument. Keep hating on me, it only makes me harder.

    I think they're definitely skilled but they fight her so stupidly. I think Miesha, McMann, Zingano and maybe Davis are more skilled than Carmouche yet Liz tried to fight a decently smart fight up until the finish than those 4.

    I like to judge those fighters on how they look outside of fighting against Ronda and they look a whole hell of a lot better. Ronda is just too good for them to even look decent when they fight her.

    Actually no, he is right. You cant watch them throw strikes and be like WOW. All these are slow and have no explosive speed. Terrible striking technique. No foot work, no head movement. Slow winging punches.

    sherdoggers like to drop their blatant ignorance on center stage for all to see, only so that they can then act as though they actually possess some other worldly knowledge. It's pretty pathetic, they all look stupid as fuck, and it has become quite grating. You always know a certified - real life - moron when you see then bashing Ronda and her competition. You seriously know they're complete life-failures the moment they start spewing that rubbish.

    Because they are not. Bethe was supposed to be a good striker. She is far from a good striker. Most of the women in the UFC are pretty terrible strikers. That being said JJ is one of the best strikers in the UFC, and could teach many of the guys about striking....

    I dunno....maybe it's because any wmma fight that doesn't include Rhonda isn't very skillful, or entertaining?

    The all literally look like we just slapped gloves on any female in the crowd...

    And when 1 actually gets rewarded to fight Rhonda they look no different then they did in any other fight and Rhonda crushes them handedly.

    So yeah, Rhonda's opponents somewhat suck.
