    Falling hard from the top, she can still be back at the top. She needs to switch camps. TAM, Tristar, or AKA

    She's done. She will never be what she was. That aura is gone and you dont ever get that back.

    She can still beat everyone in the women's division with one hand tied behind her back and would beat half of the men's BW division. She will also beat Cain under the right circumstances as well.

    Sadly, Ronda's ship has sunk. She can drain the ocean, but it'll never float again, not as long as she trains where she does.

    Ronda has no head movement, she is flatfooted and does nothing to get out of range, no kicking threat, no wrestling threat. She needs to go back to fighting mid-low tier fighters and work on improving her game and she can be champ again. Too many holes right now..

    When she retires, WMMA needs to go. They aren't emotionally stable enough to keep that crap around

    Nah, even worse than starting as a beginner, a new gym now would have to try and undo 1000's of hours of bad habits developed under Edmund. On top of that, she carries no natural striking prowess, her days are done

    I'm quite sure she is done. The way she handles the media, storming out of the cage, not accepting the loss once again. It's all signs that she is not mentally engaged in the sport anymore. She can go try and make money in Hollywood, WWE, wherever. But when it comes to fighting to top female BW's... I don't think she can do it anymore.

    And she wouldn't even need to take mayweather to the ground, she would simply outbox him...

    I really think she is done. Theoretically she could go to Kings and work her way back through the ranks but it would be a long, tough and underpaid slog and she would be getting hit in the head. Better to hang it up, get married, have kids while she's still young enough and move in a new direction - maybe politics.

    Yes, I agree. And also she can beat 50% of the Male BW's too.

    The only way this turns around for RR would be if Nunes fails some post-fight drug tests.

    If she goes to another gym she will take a beating in sparring. Is she up for that? You seriously think that Edmond didn't spend countless hours on her boxing defense? This is just a stage of the hype cycle. How can so many people who argued that she was invincible explain that she was nothing of the sort? They blame the trainer; it can't be something as obvious as she has no reflexes-reaction to punches being thrown at her head.

    When fighters are hitting pads trainers throw soft slow punches over the fighters head (and move the pads into the punchers pads creating a pop and the illusion of power). Trainers also telegraph the soft punches or follow specific patterns. Ronda was never that good defensively. Let's give her some credit; didn't she check a leg kick at the beginning of the fight?
