    I still love Rhonda...But she got Murked! Her coach is horrible.

    She needs to switch to a camp like Greg Jackson; after 6 months, fight someone ranked at the bottom of the top 10, then fight someone ranked in the middle, then fight a title eliminator opponent.....Then for the belt.

    I know it's not even close, but she looks so good on the pads, but looks like she has never thrown a punch in her last two fights.

    If that does not help, then she must retire.

    Ronda has no striking skills and no way to close the distance against any opponent who doesn't charge at her like a bull. She has no double leg. She's only fought two women with power in their hands and both of them owned her. She's done.

    Exposed. The pads don't hit back.

    No amount of training can catch her up to the level of Holly, Amanda or Cyborg...she should retire at this point.

    I think it's pretty much it for her, she's not going to stick around if she isn't challenging for a belt, and her last two fights have proven that she doesn't have anywhere near the striking skills to compete at the top level of the division anymore. I'm actually surprised she hasn't announced her retirement already, she can make a lot more money by switching careers and she won't have to get punched in the face.

    Ronda was literally the luckiest woman alive for about 2-3 years. She came into a sport that literally had zero talent, none. The sport evolves very quickly, and once women saw that WMMA wasn't going anywhere they got to work. It took less than 36 months for someone to come in and prove what we always knew. She's done, in fact she never was.

    I called it before the fight happened, with zero changes in training she had zero chance of winning. The competition has moved past just 'tough girls' and into fighters. She needed high level MMA training, not just striking in order to remain competitive. Its retirement time

    Greg Jackson's, eh? It might be a big change for her but at least she'll still have a yes-man around.

    Ronda has lost her aura of invincibility. Before Holly, she had a mental edge, her opponents were scared shitless of getting tossed on the ground and armbarred, so they fought scared. That's gone now. She doesn't have the skills to win without that. And NO camp can change or help that at this point.

    She's not going to do any of that. She is worth something like 7 million dollars, and has absolutely zero confidence that she can hang with any good strikers at this point. She's not going climb the fucking ladder again, she's going to retire.

    A lot of great points. $7 Million is not that much in California for the next 50 years.
    I am not saying it will work going to a new camp, but it's her only chance.
    No matter what, the woman MMA fighters will forever be in her debt. she is a pioneer of woman's MMA. Without her none of this is happening yet. At Rhonda's beginning, she had everything needed to put WMMA on the map..... Perfect personality and way more skill and confidence then any other woman fighter at that time. She made it possible for woman to fucking headline very successful PPV's and Fight Nights in such a short time. I hope people don't forget what she has done....Love her or hate her.

    I felt like Amanda Nunes was thinking, "Okay, you don't want to move your head? Let me move it for you."

    or block or dodge or cover up---- she seemed to try to catch a punch or two
    either this is edmund's striking training or she FORGOT every striking lesson she ever took

    it is kind of the flipside of arrogance, yeah you are confident and when you are a destroyer you destroy, but when you lose the last person you blame or improve is yourself
    she needs a real camp and to fight mid tier

    she is young enough to do this and hollywood might not like a loser so maybe she will have time

    but edmond is poison
