    How effective can they be? Has Ronda experience them before? Does she have history of checking or catching them? How many can she take before she breaks?

    Ronda comes in really heavy on that front leg, and has no good double/single leg takedowns. Nunes would be wise to chop her leg off.

    Nunes would gas from chopping those hambeast cankles.

    Checking a kick is too complicated for Ronda. There is a reason she chose and stayed with arguably the worst gym in MMA. It's not because she has a high IQ.

    Throw low kicks against a grappler???? Are you serious????
    She should train with her legs tied, not to even think about throwing kicks..... she needs to boxe the fuck out of Ronda´s face.... as simple as that.

    If Ronda had good double or single leg TD's maybe I'd advise against it. But she only has throws, so I think leg kicks would be a great idea.

    I would have to rewatch that fight. However, Nunes is much longer than Tate and I might even say she's a better fighter.

    I know the opponent isn't much but she brutalized and stopped Shayna Bazeler with her low kicks.

    No need to kick the legs against someone who blocks punches with her face

    She's highly trained in judo. They don't get hold of your limbs by asking. I'm guessing she can catch low kicks. You have to take into consideration that Ronda is more accomplished in judo than most of her opponents are in whatever their base is.

    Hahaha I love when Joe gets excited over leg kicks. But don't forget Goldie who loves a great leg kick to the body
