    Don't give her the pressure of the main or co-main event. Give her a prospect with little power and weak technical boxing. Let's be honest there are plenty of them at WBW. The Anaheim card got moved to August which gives her enough time to recover and is close by to where she lives. Give her a chance to go out on a win - if she wants it - she's earned that. Plenty of people cared about Faber vs Pickett despite knowing Urijah didn't quite have it to compete with the cream of the crop in that division anymore.

    I'd give her Pennington. I think Pennington beats her seriously.

    There is no winnable fight for a girl scared. Holm beat her last night, more than Nunez. She is done. She thinks every punch will put her to sleep and is terrified.

    Holm beat her last night too? Backstage? After the fight? Sickening, but she deserves it tho'.

    She is completely gunshy now, she will find it hard to win against any top 10 fighter.

    she doesn't deserve it. she had no respect for anything or anyone during her run, they can skip the big send off.

    Exactly, she used to have this mean look in her eyes saying "I will bumb Rush you, walk through your punches, clinch and take you down" now, she's afraid to get ktfo... She's done

    Ronda is a perfect example of why a little humility goes a long way.

    Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.

    Now that she's been KOed, she's scared to get hit and it shows. She used to just bumrush the other fighter with that same weak ass striking defense, take a few shots to the head before pushing her opponent to the cage and taking them down.

    You could tell that she knew Nunes hits hard and she didn't want to get hit. She made no real attempt to grapple at all. And once she got hit, she just stood there like a deer in headlights.

    She probably should just walk away, say something like Miesha did when she retired... "my heart's not in it anymore" or whatever, which is clearly true. The fans would understand, I know I would.

    Pretty much how I saw it. She's a shell of her former self, confidence wise.

    Holm really did take her soul.

    doubt she would even be able to find the motivation to get out of bed for that. farewell fights are for old veterans who've lost a step over time, not people who were at the top of the sport like 5 minutes ago and are now suddenly a walking corpse after having their soul ripped from their body in back to back fights.
