    Mike: ...and then she started to knock people out!
    Joe: Yeah, her work with Edmond Tarverdyan really changed the way she approached striking and also helps with her Judo a lot, how she gets in the clinch, then uses a knee to the body.
    That's a big factor in her striking game, her speed, her explosivenes, her ability to close the distance.

    What are those dorks smoking, when did Ronda ever have something which could be called a striking game? She fired out haymakers against a soccer mom who started MMA because she was too fat and got a title shot in order to hype Rousey as the most dominant female athlete in the histroy of sports :rolleyes:
    When did she ever learn to close the distance, she literally just walks at people and grabs them or she's fucked if that doesn't work. Also > explicitely mentioning Edmond as a contributor to her success

    It was literally Goldberg's last hour in this company and Rogan also looked like he gave less fucks, why do they go full retard with their shilling anytime Honda fights?

    Honestly it should be Joe leaving the UFC. That fuckstick is like watching every fight at the bar with some drunk screaming "HE HURT HIM" everytime someone wings a haymaker

    Goldie's final "AND IT IS ALL OVER" was on Ronda getting KTFO.

    I wouldn't have choose it any other way.

    She has three finishes due to strikes. She's certainly not going to beat someone like Nunes or Holly in a pure striking match, but I don't think it's outlandish to hype up a fight by saying her striking has improved immensely from when she entered the sport as a pure Judoka. Her fighting Holly was just a bad game plan from the start. Don't chase an outboxer who is more athletically gifted than you. In this fight, she was broken mentally. Nothing to do with her raw striking talent in either case.

    Rogan secretly still wanted to suck Ronda's clit and be a nuthugger. And after all that you say Rogan is good, dude is a retard

    "Ronda has a flawless technique, she is not winging punches", Rogan words....NEVER FORGET!!!

    They were also told to sell out all integrity, all professionalism?

    Rogan is not even a C-level color man. Fortunately for Rogan and the UFC, MMA fans are C-level human beings with no standards.
