Is Edmond a bad coach or is Ronda just not able to learn how to strike?

    Or a combination of both, this really looked ridicouless, She took time off and improved zero, no head movement nothing.

    What the heck was she doing in that year off?

    Maybe she's just zero talented in striking and just doesn't have the genetics to learn how to strike.

    I think Edmund's results speak for themselves. Look at the career trajectory that Ronda and Travis Browne have taken under him. Ellenberger was smart enough to GTFO

    She's in her K-1 Maia stage.

    In five years we'll be bitching they won't give her a title shot.

    It was the wrong comeback fight,she looked mentally broken after the first punch.

    They should of given her someone like pena who cant strike and would try to grapple,while being like hey ronda edmond sucks go here

    Browne has looked pretty bad since going to edmund

    Also Marina Shaffir trains there and has gone 1-2 in her pro MMA career (both losses via KO in less than a minute)

    Not a great track record for Edmund outside of Rousey

    its edmunds fault. Ronda just has to learn enough to transition into her judo. She doesn't have to be a wizard

    It was better when she rushed in. Last night she tried to close the distance half hearted, after a few punches she tried to keep distance and it only got worse.

    she got punched in the face and a year of whatever they decided to do flew right out the window. the next 10 punches were pretty much unnecessary as ronda had already mentally checked out by then.

    Agree 100%.

    He tried to make her more technical and it put her in the kill zone.

    Watch thr cannon of a right hook Rousey threw at about the 30 second mark of the fight. If she landed that missle, Nunes would be out Beth coerria cold.

    That's true. Still, it takes two to make a fight.

    Ronda and her camp were too arrogant/stupid to turn down the title shot and work out the obvious issues vs a less dangerous opponent. This was utter incompetence all around.
