    Edmond had one job - to improve her stand up and it got worse. How does someone with the resources of Rousey lose like that and completely fail to improve?

    Ironically, her skills grew the sport to the point where it became open to some very talented people whereas it wasn't before. And those people now outclass her. There would be no Nunes without Rousey. Take that in.

    Loyal to the end, and it cost her. Now she not only has given one of the fastest finishes, but now has been finished in one of the fastest.

    She got mentally crushed against Holly and never recovered. If she had she would have done interviews. All the work she did in training (although with Edmond it probably wasn't that useful) washed away once she was hit.

    He built her stand up from the ground up to be as shitty as it is. If she doesn't physically dominate someone (like Bethe). Her clinch work is decent and her ground game is excellent but she's pretty much a one-dimensional fighter.

    What does that even mean? There would be no Rousey without Royce either. Her skills didn't grow anything. She was always a one-dimensional fighter who never expanded her skill-set and started getting outclassed by better fighters.

    Defense is harder than offense.

    It was obvious they were looking for the right hand because Ronda's left was glued to her ear, but if you can't slip punches and you like to trade, well ...

    She needs to seriously leave her coach... he's ruining people's careers at this point.

    Man it's not her striking. She uses her clinch to avoid distance and go for a submission

    Sure, from the small view we get to see of Rousey, her spirit looks broken. How can you be better after that?

    Nunes started in this sport 3 years before Ronda did.
