    It's the same reason why she has yet to watch the fight.

    It's the same reason why she hasn't given Holly any real credit.

    ...and no, SNL doesn't count. That super brief concession (that she pathetically cut short) was far beyond anti-heartfelt. It was pointlessly snarky at best.

    It's the same reason why she said that she can beat up anyone on the planet..etc, etc, etc...and so on.

    To put it succinctly, her narcissistic brand of ARROGANCE is to blame.

    That form of arrogance disables one from being open-minded. It disables one from listening to constructive criticism. It may cause (cripple) one to remain content and complacent as they are...instead of addressing actual problems...

    Arrogance is negative, whereas confidence is the opposite; there is NO fine line between the two.

    Holly is confident.

    Holly straight up MURKED Ronda...however, she (Holly) is still pushing herself to be even better.

    In closing I will reference that time in which Holly got DESTROYED by Mathis. Holly didn't run away after the fight, she still addressed the media like a TRUE fighter.



    ...and we all know how Ronda responded to losing.

    Holly used that devastating loss to Mathis to GROW as a fighter...and six months later she beat her in the rematch.

    Meanwhile, Ronda may never even fight again, and if she does...she is setting herself up for PURE disaster...

    Edmond is nothing, but a yes man. Ronda needs to listen to her mom and get the hell out of dodge.

    I don't really know how she's handling the defeat or what adjustments she's making.

    Seems like SNL was on her schedule before the Holly fight and she went and did it, plus went to that silly marine dance thing, which kind of balances out not facing the media "like a real fighter."

    I figure we'll know whether she has grown as a fighter when we see the rematch.

    If we never see the rematch or she retires after losing it, then you will have your confirmation.

    And for the record, I'd rather stuff angry wasps into my ears than listen to Rousey talk. I just don't have enough info to draw any conclusions about how or if she is going to be fighting in the future.

    Ronda is still with Edmond because he is fu**ing awesome sauce. In fact, Edmond and Reebok are the only reasons I watch MMA. If there is ever an Edmond fight kit I am gonna buy me the shit out of it.

    Nope. It's actually a very simple case study for all the world to see.

    Not really. You don't know much. What are you basing "she may never fight again" on?

    What is the record of fighters who didn't face the media? Or is Ronda the first? Lol at that being the mark of a true fighter. Isn't fighting the mark of a true fighter?

    Edmond makes her feel like a gifted striker. Also, being around Edmond comes with the luxury of not feeling dumb or inadequate while in his presence, which might be a major asset for Rousey.

    Yes she has.


    I've given the same amount of evidence you have.

    It means that she is not going to train with REAL striking coaches.

    Edmond it is.

    It's Fing awesome. She's basically biting on her mouthpiece and doubling down. Win or lose, it will be SPECTACULAR. She's still in phase 1 (denial) of grief, and will carry that all the way to the rematch, where it'll most likely come crashing down harder than Chinese calculus. Her world view she's so desperately trying to hang on to, decimated, destroyed. It would be absolutely glorious to witness. I'd say more about where she'd go from there but I'd rather not get banned. God I hope she comes back. Conor bless her please.

    By her own admission she said that she has not seen the fight...

    Now, you tell me...is that a recipe for future success?

    Oh yeah, and Edmond is still by her side...

    I figured it was because Edmond has a painting of himself next to Muhammed Ali. Who WOULDN'T wanna train with that guy?
