    Terrible kicking technique on the part of Rondas blond opponent but I guess when you are already wobbled it doesn't take much

    In years past, I always thought she was benefiting from limited talent in the women's division. I always wanted to see her against a striker that had footwork and knew how to defend an arm bar. Instead she was fighting women with very limited skills.

    She will have to improve her striking dramatically if she ever wants to be champion again.

    Herb saved her from unnecessary damage. She is still healthy, she is still young, she was and can again be a bad mother fu**er. She just needs to find herself again and get the fu** away from Edmond AND Travis imo.

    Ronda was like a female version of Matt Hughes. A dominant grappler with very basic stand-up skills. Eventually both of their divisions evolved to expose their weaknesses. Hughes lost his last two fights by KO.

    Ronda is good at 2 things -- a judo throw and basic arm bar

    No striking

    No wrestling

    No Jiu-Jitsu

    And she is supposed to be this well rounded alltime great?

    Is this a white supremacist thing?

    I just don't see it.

    Name one man at 135 that Ronda can beat.

    What was Roe Jogan thinking?

    It's a marketing thing. If she would've been black it would've been the same shit.

    Cat Zingano, Alexis Davis and Sarah D'Alelio. Do you know what else they all have in common? They hold wins over Amanda Nunes.

    If she ditched that fraudulent cunt who pretends to train her I think should could come back and do quite well for herself.

    Her stance is horrible. Kind of like a fat kid learning how to salsa.

    Her legacy will be that of bringing the women's division to the masses. The UFC saw a chance to make a lot of money and boy did it ever pay off. Part of the scheme was to have a champion. Rhonda was selected as a champion for her looks, olympic pedigree, and ability to dominate a shallow division. Her skillset, while limited was enough to get the job done and keep the hype machine rolling. What is surprising to me is how many people were fooled. Sure the casual fan or person that watches the Ellen show Isn't going to know how limited her skillset is, but Joe Rogan...he should know better.
