Remember - WMMA has been around for more than 15 years, Ronda is far from the female Royce

    She's more like Brock or even Conor, a specialist amazing in one area but flawed in others, who eventually ran into bad style matchups after dominating with her specialty.

    She put WMMA on the map along with Tate,Gina and a few others.


    She is the Royce Gracie of WMMA because she won't get away from that cancer of a coach

    Ronda is the single most important WMMA fighter in history..... and no-one will ever eclipse her because she single handedly got them to the UFC.

    but I agree with you, she is not a WMMA pioneer by an stretch of the imagination

    I wasn't criticizing her, I was actually defending her saying WMMA is way more established/developed than UFC 1 MMMA.

    Gina made wmma red hot. No one even wanted to look at a wmma match before her.

    Rousey took it to the next level. Her dominance and endless armbars made it a phenomenon.

    Marloes Coenen is closer to the Royce of the women's divisions.

    You can't be that stupid. Name one other dominant female champion who finished all her opponents within 2 rounds? She single-handedly put WMMA on the map and made Dana change his mind about it.

    You didn't comprehend the OP properly. Or didn't even read it.

    She isn't the Royce of anything. Royce could actually take a punch, Royce was smart enough to always attempt to get the fight to the ground, Royce actually fought people much bigger than himself and never hid from an opponent because of a 10 lb weight difference.

    Royce is a fuckin legend, Ronda is an overhyped girl.

    Yes I did. She's both a specialist AND a person who put WMMA on the map. Without her, WMMA wouldn't have made it to the UFC when it did, which is the same as how Royce made UFC 1 a spectacle and influenced a whole generation of fighters. How am i wrong?

    That wasn't what I was arguing against, I was arguing against her dominance being akin to Royce's dominance over people who didn't even train BJJ. Since people call her the female Royce as a NEGATIVE acting like WMMA is in its infancy to the degree MMA was during UFC 1.

    Men's MMA was around before Royce as well, just look at Marco Ruas record. Ronda might be more like Ken Shamrock or Tito than Royce, but she's close to Royce than Conor or MM or Brock.
