    Ronda finally realized she wasn't getting paid to promote, she was getting paid to fight and win and the endless promoting was taking away from her fight preparation. It's no secret she was not prepared in her last fight against Holly and she took it on short notice as a replacement fight in order to help the UFC save a card.

    She's not the only UFC star to be run into the ground. Conor went through the same thing until he missed a press conference for UFC 200 and was pulled from the card. He went on to say he was done with MMA, before he backtracked. Here was his statement at the time.

    http://www.mmafighting.com/2016/4/2...ues-statement-after-being-pulled-from-ufc-200

    Ronda talked to Conor after this all happened and gave him some advice.

    http://nesn.com/2016/12/ronda-rousey-offered-conor-mcgregor-advice-after-he-was-pulled-from-ufc-200/

    Ronda took her own advice and added a no media clause in her latest fight contract so she could concentrate on her training and the improvements she has to make. Fighters like Conor and Ronda have carried the UFC for years and a lot of people have made money off of them and that includes all these media types that don't know shit about mma and don't want to know. If they feel their preparation for fights is starting to suffer they have earned the right to be a little selfish and forego the endless promoting.

    Hopefully this ends the talk of why Ronda isn't flying all over the country doing interviews and taking time away from the most important fight of her career. Like Conor, Ronda has a huge fanbase on social media and can reach more people with a 10 second tweet than somebody like Nunes can reach by spending her entire day in an ESPN studio, in what ultimately ends up being a 15 minute spot, answering stupid questions from people that don't know who the fuck she is.

    No promoting is kind of the best promotion she could do

    No one will want to watch UFC 207 if she breaks down crying during a interview when asked about being destroyed by Holly.

    it's not some kind of genius plan she's doing. She's just mentally and emotionally unable to cope with the pressure of promoting.

    She should have done at least one day before the weigh ins to do press. One hour tops. Answer a few questions. Say shes motivated and in the best shape ever yada yada yada. You don't need to do a 3 month media circus like what they wanted to do with Connor and UFC 200. Those media circuses almost always end up being a bust anyway when a fighter pulls out.

    So what? She's a multi million dollar athlete with one loss on her record. As long as she shows up to fight that's all that anyone can ask.

    She should be able to do some media in the last week. Not like she is going to miss out on any training. It will hurt her own pocketbook when the ppv sales sag.

    I'd rather have a fighter go on her merit istead of their promotional ability.

    ....the only ones who should really care about promotional push are the UFC.

    Fans should just care about the fights, not the UFC profit margin.

    Considering it was in her contract at the time to do media, I'm pretty sure she was being paid to promote.

    She's not talking to the media because she can't handle taking questions about Holly beating her up. And boy was it a good beating.

    No matter how much TS and the rest of the Knights of Ronda try to dress it up, that's all it is.

    Good attempt at a thread though.

    Better luck next time.

    Keep trying.

    Didn't really read the whole thing, but quite simply you're wrong.

    She doesn't get paid to promote? How wrong you are.

    Promotion sells the event, you get a large PPV %, then you are making yourself more money by proxy of promoting. I guarantee the less promotion she does, the less headlines, the less capturing of casual interest and the PPV market is not made up of just hardcores. The reason why Ronda sells upward of a million is because she has a huge casual fanbase and not just a truly hardcore one like fans of someone like Nunes.

    She is costing herself and she doesn't even know it yet, because her arrogant self cannot see past her nose.
