    Aren't these contradictory statements?

    If judo only works when you get someone to the ground, and she doesn't have a ground game, aren't you saying she doesn't have a judo game?

    She has a judo game as far as takedowns.

    But it's obviously ineffective if she isn't using it.

    But like most judokas in MMA, her ground control is pathetic compared to that of equivalent level BJJ players.

    So her groundgame insofar as maintaining top control and positioning is garbage in comparison to her judo takedowns.

    She has 9 submission victories. 7 were in under a minute. She wasn't outgrappled in either loss. What more do you want?

    She is amazing at judo throws and armbars

    Nobody wants to grapple with her because of armbar fear

    But as for a complete groundgame like Maia, it is not there

    Soccer moms. Being highly regarded in WMMA meant very little when Ronda was champ. Even now the overall quality of WMMA fighters is the equivalent of men's high school football compared to the pros.

    Rogan is a shill and a fraud. A wannabee tough guy.

    Miesha yes, Zingano at a push but the rest of her record is not that impressive.

    Reminds me of when Chuck Liddell started facing guys who could strike back against him and he started getting KTFO'd again and again.

    She's clearly done. You won't be seeing her again in 2017, mark my words.

    Wit? No. But I can tell you don't know anything. You've made that quite clear.

    and it will never be as good, simply because there are fewer women interested in fighting. However, is the public ever going to figure that out? Not likely. So you can put someone like Ronda on a pedestal and make claims that she will beat most men at her weight. It can never be challenged in a sanctioned fight, so shit can be talked without repercussions. If there was ever a chance this facade was going to be exposed it was 2016. But holy shit, people are still making excuses. The coaching was no good...Nunez is just that amazing...womens MMA is just evolving faster than mens (that's rich!) If you know the sport, you know how shallow the talent pool is by comparison. Its a testament to Dana's business acumen that he could make the weakest division the most followed. Brilliant marketing.

    I really think this Royce Gracie of WMMA is bad mouthing.

    - Royce Gracie fought guys way heavier than him.
    - Knew at least a bunch of attacks other than judo throws followed by an arm bar.
    - Had to fight no-rules bouts, which makes it much more mixed than contemporary MMA.
    - Back in that era they fought in tournament styles.

    I really don't care for Royce Gracie, but damn man, don't take him down to Ronda's level.
