    Honestly, I don't think we learned much from this fight other than RR's camp and coaches are shit. She got clipped less than 20 seconds into the fight and simply never recovered.


    That was the fight. The only chance she had in this fight was a submission victory. Here coaches are just awful or she doesn't listen. Watching Honda try to strike is almost as bad as watching Brock Lesnar try to strike. She need to just stick with her bread and butter. It's one dimensional, but she would probably still be the champ if she just stuck with her Judo.

    We learned she can't fight strikers. The only two legit ones she's faced her whole career.

    That is kind of flattering way of putting it, looking at how bad Demond is

    She has to strike to get on the inside, she can't just magically teleport into a clinch. It works most of the time but obviously not against elite boxers

    fixed.

    Jokes aside she's an awesome judoka, but from what we've seen of her last two fights, idk man.

    same thing happened to Buakaw when he got this idea in his head that he can box. Stick to your thing

    She tried to catch Holly and Nunes in clinches but failed. They figured her one-dimensional game out, it would seem, exposing her weaknesses.

    Rhonda never shouldve gotten the title shot to begin with...Shouldve been able to go on a 3 fight tear coming into a title shot, maybe her confidence wouldve been different. After the frst time she got clipped with a jab, she was sitting there with her elbows all high and wide looking like a rookie, no wonder Nunes saw the time to sit in and throw bombs.

    Now Rhonda is DONE.

    We'll never know how good Ronda can really be since she's stuck at GFC with Count Edmond Fraudveryan taking permanent residence in her head. She needs to exorcise that demon from her soul once and for all, find a real gym, walk in with her head down, and allow someone to teach her something new. Hitting the pads in the dark at GFC and running the steep hills of the Glendale mountains ain't cutting it.

    In a lot of ways I think you are right she should stick with what she's great at. The ting is one dimensional only gets shitted on when it's not striking. Chuck and Dan were one dimensional, but nobody cared because they were knocking people out.

    It's too late at this point. She spent some of her best years believing Edmond could teach her striking. Little did she know, he wasn't teaching her jackshit. She's mentally irreparable at this point.

    She would have to switch camps and fight lower ranked opponents.

    Gabi would crush Rhonda any way possible...She can strike, AND shes a BJJ WC. Chick is a borderline dude.

    You can say that she lost even before the fight began. Now she's mentally broke probably

    Edmond needs to close him gym and stop being a narcissistic douche who thinks he is an MMA coach. Who has he helped? He instead ruins fighters. Brown made a huge mistake going to that camp. I wish Werdum would have connected with that overgrown Sesame Street Bert named Edmond. Shave your eyebrows and go be a barber or a street sweeper....MMA coach you are not. Ronda should have listened to her mother (world champ in her own right and ten times smarter than her daughter's lost coach).

    The ONLY fight to make right now is Nunes vs Cyborg at a catchweight.
