    To make something clear, this isn't a Ronda bashing thread. Truly isn't. My mind is just blown by what I witnessed tonight.

    We all knew her head movement was terrible. We've seen that in her fights and especially during the Holly fight. I literally seen 0 improvement in her striking defense. NOTHING. With all this time off. Her striking defense was sooooo bad against Holly, and to not improve this in over a year is crazy. Not even circling out. Even ATTEMPTING to.

    It blows my fucking mind.

    I've never seen a fighter not move their head while being swung at.

    I don't think I've ever seen Rousey move her head to avoid a punch. It's unreal.

    Rousey makes JDS's head movement against Cain look like Floyd.

    I want to see what really went down when she sparred boxers. Were they kidding themselves, or just us, with their bullshit statements?

    I was shocked at her lack of head movement. It was almost like she wanted to get KO'd.

    Edmund Whatshisface is responsible for that. I don't know how you can send a fighter out there so horribly unprepared and take their money and feel good about any part of it. Guy should be in jail as an accomplice to an assault and battery. He set her up for failure.

    Have you ever panicked and stood still? Its like a really shy kid reading infront of class and stumble on his words and can hear the laughter of others and just freezes. You want to say something, but words are not coming out

    Her facial expressions changed as soon as she got hit the first time. Probably had flashbacks to the Holly fight.

    Appalling. She got rocked by a jab, and then just swallowed every punch thrown at her.
    Truly appalling.

    That was one of the ugliest things I've ever seen, yet so beautiful at the same time.

    WMMA is still in 1993 for the most part

    Her striking defense has never been good - but she was able to get away with it until the Holm fight

    So what has she spent the last year working on? No head movement, no footwork, no evasiveness, no punch crispness ...same as before with more muscle definition. LOL, looks like she spent the year in Planet Fitness instead of striking training.

    No head movement at all. We in the know have been saying it forever. Suck it, all you pros who all had Ronda winning despite saying how bad her striking was a year ago. They bought right into the hype AGAIN even after it was all exposed a year ago.

    DC, and all those other bums in the analyst desk. Only Tate had it right

    If that wasn't Ronda Rousey and it was some unknown instead, people would be outraged the fight even got sanctioned. She was clearly defenseless and at the mercy of a professional fighter.
