    When you're here, I ask questions, YOU answer them
    Hespect for going against the female grain and actually fighting.

    Salient pieces/charts from the article (though it's rare anyone here will give her credit):

    No sure about Lebern, but she would definitely beat Shirkey.

    Ronda is definitely elite. The facts don't lie.

    So, how much of an outlier is Lioel Messi? Is he really on par with Ronda (relative others in his field)?

    She's a beast. Far above every other woman in the UFC terms of skill. But she still ducking the shit out of Cyborg.

    Outliers are usually ignored.

    It's Bethe Correia.

    Seriously - it actually could be Maryna Moroz. Ronda's incredibly long fights with Miesha Tate are screwing up her placement on this chart.

    Of course she is. Off to bed now, we don't want you waking up grumpy in the morning.

    what don't people get about her competition being $hitty?

    Werdum is the best fighter in the world, he can beat any human that is walking in the world.

    Ronda fights as a female...in MMA...in the 135 division. SHE'S FOUGHT NO BODIES. NO BODIES.

    She's the royce gracie of WMMA, congrats! there was more skill in ufc 1 than WMMA. GTFO
