    Ronda ruled the division for years when WMMA was in its early stages. Opponents didn't know how to defend her Judo and submissions but once they learned how to they were able to beat Ronda just like Royce. Holly Holm and Nunes were both strong in the clinch and didn't let Ronda bully them there. Are we seeing more stronger WMMA fighters coming through the sport? Is the new breed of WMMA upon us?

    I think Travis might dump her. It's only a matter of time.

    In a word, no. Royce was at a physical disadvantage in most of his fights. Sometimes the disadvantage was enormous. Rousey was beating up on girls with little training or skills. There's really no comparison.

    Royce beat nobodies just like Ronda. Sakuraba burst the comical bubble that was "unbeatable" BJJ.

    Sry man!

    WMMA has been around for over 15 years, Ronda is more like Brock or even Conor (specialist amazing in one area and meh elsewhere).

    That's of truth on both sides of the Royce - ronda comparison. Royce ran for the hills when the truth became obvious, and he made chump change. rhonda fought two women who could box. They both crushed her.

    Like royce, ronda can't fight stand up, and against a physically strong opponent she has trouble taking them down.
